The special Wizard’s Edition of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has run into stock problems. The version of the game, only available in most regions through Namco’s own store, has been oversold and many customers are seeing their orders cancelled.
The Wizard’s Edition comes with a plushie Drippy (your in-game companion), some golden downloadable characters and a physical copy of the 300-page spell book that features in the game.
Customers who ordered the special edition after the 17th of January were unfortunate victims of a “glitch in [the] ordering system” at distributor, Digital River. Those who ordered before the 17th should have received notice that their game will be delivered. Anyone affected by the error should be receiving email to tell them that their order has been cancelled and their payment will be refunded.
Normal versions of the game don’t seem to be suffering from any stock problems at this time but, despite the obvious disappointment many will feel if affected by this error, it’s nice to know that the PS3-exclusive is proving popular.
