This news is a little old now, but an eagle eyed reader pointed out that we’ve not updated on this and it’s important that we do. The Studio Ghibli game, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, which is being developed by Team 5 alongside Ghibli will be released in the UK; however, unlike what was announced back in October 2011, it’s not going to be a 2012 game. It’s been delayed to a vague date in 2013. Alongside this is some new screenshots and artwork for the UK market.

It’s also been confirmed that there will be English dubbing, alongside the original Japanese cast and that there will be subtitles in various European languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian and German so that keeps a vast array of people happy.

NamcoBandai describe Ni no Kuni as:

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a heart-warming tale of a young boy called Oliver, who embarks on a journey into a parallel world to become a magician in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies.

The exact release still remains unknown, but it’s slated for a Q1 2013 release on the PlayStation 3.

The new screenshots and artwork are on Page 2.
