The collaboration between J-RPG veterans Level 5 and the revered Studio Ghibli – Ni no Kuni – has been delayed in Europe and Australasia
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has been a long time coming. Combining the expertise of Level 5 Studios with the storytelling and animation style of Studio Ghibli, this hotly anticipated game was originally released on the Nintendo DS all the way back in 2010, with a Japanese-only PS3 version following in 2011.
Just as we’re finally about to get our grubby mitts on a localized version, another delay is announced, with Namco Bandai stating on twitter that “Due to logistics delays Ni no Kuni will launch 1st February 2013 with a free gift to download”. That gift will take the form of a Draggle familiar, available to download for all players at launch.
Ni no Kuni was originallly due to be launched on January 25th in the EU, so at least the delay isn’t too long, with a January 22nd release in the US still going ahead.
