Though Studio Ghiblis involvement only went so far as composing the music and a few animated cutscenes, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch feels like a classic Ghibli film. The enchanting world and charming characters, its heartwarming tale of loss and acceptance; it feels like a product of the studios talent. But Level 5 known more recently for their work on the Professor Layton series handled did all the work, the developer capturing the Ghibli essence exquisitely. Through an embarrassment of content, a fun, lively battle system and Pokemon-esque monster collection element, and a fantastic story, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch delivers a traditional Japanese-style role-playing game at its finest.
