NAMCO BANDAI Games and LEVEL-5 today announced today that the highly anticipated JRPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch™ has gone gold for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The game will be available for purchase at the PlayStation®Store and at videogame retailers in Europe and Australasia on the 25th January 2013 in standard and ‘Wizard’s Edition’.
The Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition will include a 300+ page hardback physical copy of The Wizard’s Companion, the spellbook Oliver uses throughout his journey in the game. The full-colour Wizard’s Companion contains a bestiary of all the creatures found in the game along with in-depth item descriptions, spells and history of the other world. The limited-run Wizard’s Edition will also contain a plush doll of Drippy, Oliver’s guide through his adventures, as well as exclusive ‘golden mite’ and ‘golden drongo’ DLC familiars.
Fans who pre-order Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch at participating retailers will also receive two exclusive familiars developed especially for the Western release: flutterby and griffy.
For a preview of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, the demo can be downloaded from the PlayStation®Network and will give access to two different levels of the game where players can test their mettle against a couple of the game’s most infamous bosses: Guardian of the Woods and Moltaan.
