Ni No Kuni Delayed In Europe And Australia

Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring! It is only a small delay, the game was meant to arrive this month but as you can see ‘logistics’ have got in the way. Namco Bandai have thoughtfully added an extra treat to apologise for the hold up.


“Many of you are excited so we asked the wizards at LEVEL-5 to dig into their creature cage and they pulled out an adorable Draggle familiar,” tweeted Nacmo Bandai, “The Draggle familiar will be available to download for free from the day of launch.”

GAME have recently re-opened pre-orders for the exclusive ‘Wizard’s Edition’ of the game which includes a physical copy of The Wizard’s Companion, the spell book Oliver uses throughout his journey and a ‘Drippy plush’ which I am assured is a cuddly toy and not a sexually transmitted disease.

  1. So gutted this is a PS3 exclusive. Looks great.

  2. Demo was downright adorable! It’s not really my sort of game but people looking forward to this are in for a treat, I feel.

    My comment has no bias attached to it what with Drippy (one of the lead characters) having an awesome Welsh valleys accent. :-P

  3. Had this on order for ages, but happy to wait a few extra days – it’s gonna get busy with this, Bioshock Infinite, Dead Space 3 and Tomb Raider!!

    Nice touch with the free DLC.

  4. dam one more week game looks amazing.

  5. Thank you for posting this article because I had no idea GAME opened up the preorders fir the Wizard’s Edition again! Just completed my import order for the USA.

  6. Really looking forward to this, the game looks stunning :)

  7. I read somewhere that this would get a digital release as well, does anyone know if it’s true? I’ll get it either way though, the battle system is quite fun even for a turn-based veteran and the artwork is gorgeous.

  8. Heh, I didn’t know it was meant to be out this month. I thought it was set for mid-february, so this is a nice surprise.

  9. At least it’s not a long delay!

  10. Partially lost interest in this after the demo. I’ll still be buying it but not day one.
