Studio Ghibli and Level-5′s video game Ni No Kuni was one of my most-anticipated games of 2012. Now it will have to be one of my most-anticipated games of 2013. The PlayStation 3 game has already been released in Japan, and it was originally schedule to be released in the US this spring. Then this spring turned into this winter. Now this winter has turned into early 2013. I’m not sure why there’s such a long delay, but it looks like we’ll have to tough it out and wait even longer for this gorgeous-looking RPG.
Adding insult to injury, a new English-language trailer has gone online, and it makes the game look even more spectacular. Studio Ghibli’s wonderful storytelling seems to have easily made the transition to the gaming world, and so here’s hoping that Level-5 has delivered on the gameplay side. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Then remember you either have to wait almost a year to play the game.
