Ni no Kuni Limited Edition up for Pre-order
The game’s Western release is almost a year away, but I’ve already thrown down my $99.99 for this amazing limited edition of the game. Yup - $99.99. That’s a lot of money, even for a limited edition, but this time I think it’s worth it. The “wizard edition” of the RPG co-created by Studio Ghibli and Level-5 will include a hardcover version of the spell book used by the protagonist, as well as a plush version of his pal, Drippy.
If I remember correctly, the DS version of the game required players to use a similar physical spell book to progress through the game. It doesn’t seem like this has been worked into the PS3 version, but it’s still a very cool bonus. The real treat is Drippy, and there will also be two DLC characters included in the bundle.
Side Note: The pre-order page mentions that the Western release of the game will contain both English and Japanese voice over tracks - good news for people who prefer hearing bad voice acting that they can’t understand rather than bad voice acting that they can understand.
Get it exclusively through Namco Bandai.
