If you’ve been following TheSixthAxis for a while then you’ll know that we’re quite looking forward to Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch, which is going to release on January 25th 2013 in Europe.
Now the US PlayStation Blog has revealed that a demo is going to release this week on the US PSN store. A date for the European demo has yet to be revealed by either Sony or Namco Bandai, but with the release date just 6 weeks away hopefully it will be soon.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch originally released in Japan back in November 2011, though sales were not as high as expected, where it sold only 40% of retail stock in its first week of sales. Level 5’s CEO Akihiro Hino told Famitsu earlier this year that a sequel would only be possible if overseas sales were successful.
A worldwide release was pushed back to localise the game for international markets.
Update: It’s coming to the EU PSN too, this Wednesday.
