Namco Bandai have announced that they will publish Level-5's PS3 exclusive Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in North America and Europe next year.

Developed in collaboration with Studio Ghibli, the original game, Ni no Kuni: The Jet-Black Mage, was published by Level-5 in Japan. Unfortunately the developer did not have any plans to release the game overseas.

The PS3 release follows the story seen in the DS version, but takes a different turn at the midway point and will continue past the DS' ending. Fans of the world famous studio responsible for films like Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro will be pleased to know that the music is being handled by Joe Hisaishi.

No release date has been confirmed other than early 2012.
