Remake of a Level-5 jRPG that was originally on the NDS and is now on the PS3.

I'll be getting it eventually in the future~

Also the artwork is made by Studio Ghibli.

 

The game's name means: Two Countries or known as "Another World" - not sure how accurate that is.

 

Anyways, the full name is: Ni No Kuni Wrath of the White Witch


Not quite. The DS and PS3 games were announced simultaneously, but in effect DS version was a timed exclusive. One could argue endlessly whether the DS or PS3 versions (as they are slightly different) is the definitive version. Of course because of the HD-ness and the fact you can play on a 80" TV screen (if you have one) makes the PS3 version definitive for me. But if you think touch screen is all that and a bag of chips and that it came out first then you might say the DS version is the definitive version.

Didn't they start development on both titles at the same time? Even if they didn't, it's not a remake...


Oh didnt know that o.o.

Maybe it..was a PRE-PLANNED REMAKE!?

I dont know lol, arent the visuals better? Why would they make 2 versions at the same time o.O?

What are the differences between the (2) games?

I ask this because the DS game is translated as "Two Countries: The Jet-Black Mage" and the PS3 game was translated as "Two Countries: The Queen of Sacred White Ash".



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

I see, I thought it was a remake considering the fact that the NDS version came out few years ago o.O? Or did the PS3 version come out the same time?

Which is a word that gets used often with Studio Ghibli films. For homework, go watch Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, or Whisper of the Heart. Some of the best movies I've ever seen, animated or otherwise. Ghibli films aren't just about magic and friendship, either, as they often deal with loss, tragedy, and personal growth. You might have heard of Grave of the Fireflies, which will just break your heart into tiny pieces.


Ghibli's not involved with the story though. It's all Level 5.

Also binary the games were not announced simultaneously. The DS version was announced first then the PS3 version was announced later.




Gameplay looks pretty good, but I really don't like the artstyle (not a big Ghibli fan).



Strange that they kept the original Japanese title. Ni no Kuni doesn't exactly roll of the tongue.

Not that I mind.

I believe both games were announced simultaneously, but the platform for the second game (PS3) wasn't identified until some time after the initial announcement.
