Ni No Kuni OPM UK Review

The game is a must have. Every RPG lover, including newcomers, should give this game a chance it so rightfully deserves! (PS3) 9.1/10

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.

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 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 !).
Blaine  +   1481d ago
For a Final Fantasy game, 8/10 is abysmal.
VsAssassin  +   1481d ago
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?
VsAssassin  +   1480d ago
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!
MaxXAttaxX  +   1480d ago
If only it had been 30% FF9 and not 7.

Naahh it's alright.
Julie  +   1481d ago
Yaaaaaay! i want this game and i want bigger scans too! :O
GribbleGrunger  +   1480d ago

jacksonmichael  +   1481d ago
Good to see. Very excited.
TheHater  +   1481d ago
why can't I pre-order this game in North America?
brettyd  +   1481d ago
I'm not a JRPG fan at all but the art style caught my eye, may have to give this one a shot.
Ethereal  +   1481d ago
I haven't heard anything about a US release outside of "it's coming"...I need it now...

Ryo-Hazuki  +   1481d ago
Can't wait for this to come to the U.S
baodeus  +   1481d ago
if it do well, there is a high chance it will be localized.
gigreen  +   1481d ago
It is getting localized. The US release is announced for the first quarter of 2012.
baodeus  +   1481d ago
oh, didn't know that. Koolll will be looking forward to play it.
Der_Kommandant  +   1481d ago
Reminds me of my days playing Dragon Quest VIII
Megaman_nerd  +   1481d ago

Studio-YaMi  +   1481d ago
Gonna get this one for sure ! I love studio Ghibli !
SandwichHammock  +   1481d ago
Remote play with PSV! Please!
wenaldy  +   1481d ago
Only one reason: Studio Ghibli
LNDCalling  +   1481d ago
Breath of fresh air, this game is. Yes, hmmm.
Kran  +   1481d ago
I want it :( Hurry up with the english port! :(
Acquiescence  +   1481d ago
Guys, I don't get it...
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*
Kran  +   1480d ago
I presume they ported it from JP and that they didnt get a review copy.
Optical_Matrix  +   1481d ago
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.

tiffac008  +   1480d ago
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.
jmallymav  +   1480d ago
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.
