Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
JRPG fans rejoiced when news of a Studio Ghibli title was on the way. Now that it has arrived, all the excitement has been fully justified. The first thing everyone notices is the fantastical and lively animation that is the trademark of any Studio Ghibli film. This adds that same charm and sense of wonder we all take away from the movies, but in video game form this time. Traditional RPG elements are something a lot of gamers have been missing with this generation of game consoles. Ni No Kuni will take you right back to those fantastic memories of SNES and PS1 JRPG’s that you know and love so well. The game is going to get you a solid 50+ hours of gameplay, and that depends on how much of a completionist you are. All in all, any RPG lover who hasn’t tried this one out should do themselves a favor and give it a go.
