Namco Unveils UK and North American Release Dates for Ni No Kuni

June 1, 2012 Written by Alex Osborn

Role-playing fans in the west can finally pull out that red pen and mark their calendars, as Namco Bandai has announced the official release date for Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

The artistically beautiful RPG from Level-5 and Studio Ghibli will hit UK retailers on January 25th and North America on January 22nd of next year. While that does mean gamers will have to remain patient for another seven months or so, everything we’ve seen of the game thus far leads us to believe it will be well worth the wait.

The game will feature English voice-overs, with the option to have either German, French, Italian or Spanish subtitles. For those that wish to experience the game in its true, original form, the option to select Japanese voice-work with English subtitles will be available as well.

Namco Bandai is planning to show Ni No Kuni at E3 next week, so be sure to check back at PlayStation LifeStyle for more coverage on the game. In the meantime, we recommend you re-watch the gorgeous debut trailer here.
