The game is a must have. Every RPG lover, including newcomers, should give this game a chance it so rightfully deserves!
AHHH AAA JRPG SONY Exclusive Like the Good Old Days
This is a day one buy for me. Playstation use to be pumped with JRPG and we need a lot more now. Good to see this and hopefully we get more.
Amen. I can barely read the scan, anyone have a bigger image?
great time for JRPGs, Tales of Graces also releasing soon. Also Devil Survivor2. Last Story sometime this year, and Xenoblade for the gamers in NA
Excellent. A good jrpg at least. I wish FF was getting scores like that these days (FF13-2 got 8/10 from opm). Need more games like kini no kuni, persona and valkyria chronicles
8 is nowhere a bad score.... I didn't like Final Fantasy 13 too,but haven't tried 13-2 yet,it might actually be good ? Just saying though...an 8/10 is NOT a bad score ! a game doesn't have to be 9 or 10 for you to enjoy it,I enjoy games that are far down from that (5 or 6 !).
For a Final Fantasy game, 8/10 is abysmal.
Some excerpts: +The magazine gave the game a total score of 9.1, quoting that it's easily one of the most promising games to graze the modern JRPG world! +Technical and artistic graphics are beautiful and rich! +Influence ratio: 20% Layton, 40% Ghibli, 30% FF7 +A compelling story and deep, rewarding gameplay! +Truth: Everyone should give this game a shot; it's worth it!
Sounds like everything we hoped it'd be. We have to support games like these or who knows when we'd get another. Anyone have a release date for the US?
No release date set yet, but Level 5 confirmed it's a 2012 Q1 release. We can bet before April we'll get this gem!
If only it had been 30% FF9 and not 7. Naahh it's alright.
Yaaaaaay! i want this game and i want bigger scans too! :O
try youtube. there are dozens of game trailers on there of this game
Good to see. Very excited.
why can't I pre-order this game in North America?
I'm not a JRPG fan at all but the art style caught my eye, may have to give this one a shot.
I haven't heard anything about a US release outside of "it's coming"...I need it now...
confirmed for EU in march 2012 and it says that it's coming in Q1 2012 in the US so it's not too far now :D
Can't wait for this to come to the U.S
if it do well, there is a high chance it will be localized.
It is getting localized. The US release is announced for the first quarter of 2012.
oh, didn't know that. Koolll will be looking forward to play it.
Reminds me of my days playing Dragon Quest VIII
nice score ;D
Gonna get this one for sure ! I love studio Ghibli !
Remote play with PSV! Please!
Only one reason: Studio Ghibli
Breath of fresh air, this game is. Yes, hmmm.
I want it :( Hurry up with the english port! :(
Is this an import review of the Japanese version or is the game out in Western countries soon? Last I knew, the game doesn't even have an official release date here yet, so why was OPM sent a review copy so early. This is a great score though, and gets me even more hyped for this spectacular looking gem. 40% Studio Ghibli and 30% FFVII?! *drools*
I presume they ported it from JP and that they didnt get a review copy.
It's so sad that it's taken this long for a HD JRPG like Ni no Kuni to come about. Admittedly we've had but Lost Odyssey and Valkyria Chronicles but those games are 4 years old. Happy that Namco Bandai is bring this to Europe.
All I wanted was a 7 for the buy. Nice...
people!peole! when is this coming in the US?! plz someone tell me
No exact release date yet (I'm dying of waiting myself. lol!) The last report was its slated for Q1 2012 but its more likely in early Q2.
I'm liking the artwork! I hope it comes out this year(early). I havent seen a game like this before...sorta reminds me of Earthbound. I getting this.
Love it cant wait:)
