Techland Time: Ni No Kuni, The Most Promising Japanese Roleplaying Game in Years

Matt Peckham of Techland Time writes:

You’ve probably never heard of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Let’s change that. What’s a “Ni no Kuni” anyway? There’s a “white witch” in the game? Someone made an RPG from Narnia fan fiction?

One thing at a time. Maybe you’ve heard of Studio Ghibli, the Tokyo-based film house behind animated movies like Howl’s Moving Castle, Grave of the Fireflies and Spirited Away — a handful from the studio’s A-list, and some of the finest films ever made.

Well, the Studio Ghibli folks got together with Japanese game developer Level 5 (Dark Cloud 2, Dragon’s Quest VIII, the Professor Layton series — some of the finest games ever made) a few years ago to make a roleplaying game.

I dunno, Tales of Graces f was absolutely amazing. I considered that the best JRPG since FFX.

are you for real brah? lol

Snookies122106d ago (Edited 2106d ago )

Very real, that game did a wonderful job of creating likable characters and the dialogue/interactions they had with one another (especially in side scenes) were fantastic. Although, I should reiterate my above statement. I meant to say "best JRPG on consoles since FFX". Not really trying to compare it to FFX, as it doesn't stand up to that. Still, it was a fantastic game.

Lost Odyssey was the best JRPG this generation.

my answer is in the link

Xenoblade Chronicles 100%. Ofcourse Sony fans will dispute that. I've not played Ni no Kuni yet So I can't compare , But Xenoblade is the best RPG i've played this gen better than all of the WRPG's.

It's not overated at all. Once you deal with the dated graphics it's one of the best RPG's ever made.

I'm currently finishing up Lost Odyssey and I just finished Tales of Graces f yesterday (I was playing them both since Christmas) and I have to say Tales is better.

I wasn't a fan of it's battle system at first and the story seemed very childish at first but it got much better in both respects. Lost Odyssey whilst great, just isn't as good in my opinion.

Graces was Mediocre at best IMO. Jblaze noted some outstanding jrpgs. I agree graces is the best on the ps3 but that's not saying much. Still any Tales game localized is a good thing and Ni No Kuni looks fantastic. I prefer more epic games like FF, Lost Odyssey, Xenoblade myself but I love Ghibli to death and Level 5 has the potential to make great games. I totally hated WKC though. Hopefully this is better than that was.

Lost Odyssey was the best jrpg for me. Had a long, epic quest with massive towns, hidden dungeons, bosses, great characters, awesome story, 20 some hours of cgi cutscenes (love cutscenes), and the best damn soundtrack since FFX's. Jansen was the shit I might add.

Snookies122105d ago (Edited 2105d ago )

It's okay if you didn't care for it, I won't judge on your opinion or anything. It's just that you said you prefer more "epic" games. Which is exactly what I prefer, and Graces certainly qualified for that nearing the end. (Not sure if you got that far or not, the game does take a bit of time to start gaining steam though.)

O RLY! stopped reading right there.

Already preordered. Hopefully it does better in America than it did in Japan... You just never know what is going to sell over there.

kratos1232106d ago

i was sure people would eat it up like candy i couldn't be more wrong.
It was really a shame such a lovely game and people were just ignoring it i hope the re release will do much better over their
