Default Prime


Review | Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Do you remember the first time you caught a Pokémon, and the first time you saw it evolve? What about the first time you defeated a gigantic boss in the 3D realm of Zelda and rode the blue light out of the dungeon?  Or how about the first time you traveled the vast, beautifully cel-shaded lands of a Dragon Quest game on your PS2?  These are just a few examples of the sources that Ni no Kuni draws from, but that’s not to say it feels like an unoriginal rip-off of any sort. Instead, Ni no Kuni injects its own fascinating ideas into the RPG genre while waving its many influences in your face, resulting in an adventure that feels both fresh and nostalgic. But that doesn’t even begin to describe the virtues present in Ni no Kuni, which is a veritable gem among Japanese RPGs, with a complex combat system, an emotional roller-coaster of a storyline, and vibrant cel-shaded visuals.
