Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Will be Slightly Cheaper on the NA PSN

Despite many big name titles now being available on the PS3’s PlayStation Store on launch day, saving the cost of creating a box and (sometimes) a manual, the prices have generally been the exact same for the retail and digital releases. Publishers seem to be hesitant to follow the lead of many of the PlayStation Vita PSN games and doing a 10% or so discount, but that won’t be the case with Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

Namco Bandai announced today via press release that you’ll be able to download the RPG that received a rare perfect score from us for the slightly cheaper price of $54.99, $5 less than retail.

While this may not be a huge discount, it could be a turn in the right direction for future games coming to the PSN.
