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. 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.
