When Level-5 announced Studio Ghibli tie-up RPG Ni no Kuni: The Another World for DS in 2008, it made some vague reference to a console counterpart to the game. This week’s Famitsu reveals that the console version is for the PlayStation 3.
The magazine doesn’t provide details on the PS3 version. But this bit of text should intrigue Ghibli fans: “You’ll be able to adventure in a world that has the feel of a Studio Ghibli anime.”
The entire point of the two page Famitsu spread on the PS3 version appears to be to show how closely it mirrors the concept art created by Studio Ghibli’s master artists.
A couple of screens labeled as “game screens” really do look like they were pulled straight out of an animated movie.
The magazine lists the PlayStation 3 version as date and price TBA.
Outside of the revelation of the PlayStation 3 version, Famitsu has a lengthy look at the DS version of the game, which it lists with a Fall 2010 release time period (this delay from the game’s original Spring release period was quietly announced last month).
New details include a look at the magic book that comes with the game, and details on the growth system for raising your “Imagine” partner characters. There will be over 300 such characters, who can be mixed and matched to create an original battle team to support main character Oliver.
These screens are from the DS version. But you already knew that, didn’t you?
More Ni no Kuni details are expected later this week straight from Level-5. Perhaps we can look forward to a more specific release time frame for the DS version along with some high res screenshots of the PS3 version.
