Ni No Kuni Remaster on the PC

This is pretty cool! In another E3 leak, it appears that the first Ni No Kuni game (Wrath of the White Witch) is getting a remaster for the PC. The sequel was released on PC, and I enjoyed it quite a bit, but it was missing some of the first game's best features. One is that the animated sequences were done by Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, etc.), and you can really feel that Hayao Miyazaki influence on the game. Another is the clever use of tamed pets, sort of incorporating a Pokemon-like aspect.

On a personal note, I played the game after it's PS3 western release while I was recovering from a serious health issue and surgery. So it was a much-needed infusion of light-hearted adventure. I'll be glad to check this one out again!



Rounding out the trio of Bandai Namco E3 2019 leaks, we have Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered – coming to PC and PS4 – and a separate Nintendo Switch version, all due out this fall.

Level-5's whimsical action-RPG looked amazing in its original release, and for the remaster, we can look forward to "improved graphics and performance." The Nintendo Switch port won't have those same exact benefits, but based on the leaked screenshots posted to ResetEra, it's no slouch, either.

"Join Oliver as he embarks on an adventure through a world inhabited by new friends and ferocious foes alike in the hopes of bringing back his mother after a tragic accident," reads the summary on a leaked Bandai Namco landing page. "With a copy of the Wizard's Companion in his hand and his trusty friend Drippy by his side, he will travel across this rich fantasy world to tame familiars, take on enemies, and overcome the countless challenges that stand between him and his mother's salvation."

Hey wow, looks like this game is out! The cheapest I've been able to find it so far is $42.99, which is a bit higher than I'm ready to pay for a game I've already played most of the way through. I think I'll pick it up once it approaches the mid-$30 range. I'll post here when I find a good deal

I never was able to find a good deal on this game, but I bought it anyway. Really glad I did, I've had a ton of fun with it. Highly recommend.
