Joystiq: Ni no Kuni (PS3) preview

Joystiq: Not that I expected it to, but a year after my first demo, I'm delighted to report that Ni no Kuni still looks completely gorgeous. The graphics don't seem incredibly impressive from a technical perspective -- they're actually pretty simple -- but effective use of cel-shading and good old-fashioned art design have combined to convincingly deliver the experience of wandering around in a Studio Ghibli world.

The story is too old to be commented.

This looks so vibrant and colorful,I love it!
Is this a sequel or a completely new IP?

NukaCola2190d ago (Edited 2190d ago )

dunno, think just a PS3 version of the DS game. Either way, I am getting it. It looks incredible!

@below, thnks didnt know.

Its not a new IP but the Ds version is a different story so they are pretty much completely unrelated.

Shikoro2189d ago

In regards to the DS version, this is an up port.
The DS and PS3 versions altogether make a new IP. Simple...

tarbis2190d ago

Enough talk. Just bring it over.

Crystallis2189d ago

I need this looks beautiful.

Level 5 is amazing I love their games

I REALLY hope this game gets the attention it deserves, it looks absolutely beautiful and looks like a true JRPG, I hope it sells well and developers start making JRPGs again like in the PS1 and PS2 generations, there are so many great JRPGs for Sony's previous consoles
