Dear Sony: If you want me to buy a PS3 before its price drops to $199, bring Ni no Kuni to the States

At this point, I'm planning to hold off on buying a PS3 until the price of the system drops to $199. What would prompt me to pick one up before that happens? A Western release for Ni no Kuni.

Speaking of Ni no Kuni, the folks at developer Level-5 have released a new trailer for their highly anticipated RPG, which will hit the streets in Japan on Nov. 17. Here it is:



Also hitting the streets in Japan on Nov. 17: The awesome "Ni no Kuni Magical Edition" PS3 seen here.

Honestly, if Sony brought both Ni no Kuni and the "Ni no Kuni Magical Edition" PS3 to the States, I'd literally buy both in a heartbeat, gaming budget be damned.

Ahhh that trailer is beautiful! Ni no Kuni is definitely #1 on my Christmas list this year! I've been trying to purchase the DS version but a lot of online stores have been out of stock for a long time (I wonder why?)

It's certainly a pricey game, though! 8,800 yen? That's like $90!

It is beautiful, isn't it? Hopefully it's at least half as fun and enjoyable as it looks.

As for its price? Yikes! I wonder why it's so much?

It kind of makes you sigh, doesn't it? Really, it's going to be terrible if this game -- like its DS counterpart -- fails to leave Japan...

I sometimes tire of the cel shaded graphics a few hours in to a game, but this one looks FAN-TAS-TIC!

Bryan Ochalla said...

You get tired of cel-shaded graphics after a short while, Darwin? Why is that? I've always liked the look myself, although I have to admit I haven't played a *ton* of games with cel-shaded graphics (Jet Grind Radio, Wind Waker, etc.).

I can't quite explain it, but I guess a few hours in, I start to wish the graphics were more defined. Oh, maybe it's just a feeling of disconnect with the world. I get that more with cel shading than sprites for some reason.

Interesting! I'll have to see if I feel that way next time I play a cel-shaded game...
