Namco Bandai Games Europe has given its popular fantasy adventure Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch a Q1, 2013 European release date.
The child of a collaboration between between Level-5 and legendary Japanese animation company Studio Ghibli, Namco Bandai confirmed that the game would be launched in Europe on the PS3 with both English and Japanese voiceovers. Additionally, the game will house English, French, Italian, German and Spanish subtitles.
"We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them," said Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of LEVEL-5.
Later adding: "To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own language."
Already out in numerous territories, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch tells the tale of a young boy called Oliver as he journeys through a parallel world, questing to bring his mother back from the dead.
