The Trailer for Studio Ghibli’s Ni No Kuni

If you’re at all familiar with anime, then you’ve no doubt heard of Studio Ghibli, the group behind such memorable and classic titles like Nausicaa, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. These movies are known not only for their stories, but for their memorable artistic style and the quality of the animation. They’ve produced some truly remarkable films, some of which rank among my favorites of all time.

That’s why I’m excited that Studio Ghibli and Level 5 (Dragon Quest VIII) are teaming up to create Ni No Kuni, a PS3 and DS title that’s slated for release next year in Japan. The new trailer for the game is out, and in my opinion, its absolutely stunning to look at. I love the animated look of the whole thing, and how smooth and vibrant everything appears. I for real can’t wait to play this game.

What do you guys think? Anybody else excited?

  1. the fighting looks like pokemon. And the art style looks good. I never saw any of those anime movies except spirited away and that one was good so I am expecting the story to be worth it in this game.

  2. The day is coming when the pressure to pick up a PS3 will finally overwhelm me. The dam will burst, and I will be awash in an endless sea of gaming. On that day will I cry out the names of my undoing: “Quantic Dream! Ghibli! Miyazaki! Kojimaaaaaaaa!”

    Ummm…so yes, excited.

  3. Looks a lot like Dragon Quest VIII, which I loved. This is even more gorgeous, though, and if the story is on par with Studio Ghibli standards, this game should be amazing.

    As a side note, in one of the “Gamer Sushi Asks” segments a little while ago, I stated that I would love to see Miyazaki do an Okami movie. I also mentioned that it would never happen. Seeing this, though, maybe it’s not so far-fetched…

  4. Graphically sweet. I was really hoping for just a straight up action-adventure game, not a fan of turn based battles. Still cute.
