Bandai Namco is poised to release a remastered version of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on PlayStation 4 and PC, along with the original version on the Switch.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered is available to pre-order, ahead of a 20 September release on PC and PlayStation 4. The Switch version of the original game will be released the same day.
2013’s Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, developed by Level-5, is the epitome of a cult classic, with its hybrid turn-based JRPG mechanics, enchanting storyline and glorious visuals created by legendary anime film-maker Studio Ghibli. Bandai Namco describes the remastered version of the game thus: “Featuring enhanced and upgraded visuals and design, players will experience the tale of Oliver on his enchanting journey to retrieve his mother from another world.”
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch’s 20 September release marks the game’s debut on Nintendo Switch. Bandai Namco adds: “Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on Nintendo Switch is the first handheld iteration of the acclaimed title, letting Switch players experience the game in TV mode at home, or in handheld mode on the go. The game retains the same dynamic fight system combining real-time action and turn-based tactical elements, as well as the dozens of locations and hundreds of creatures that comprise the vast universe of Ni no Kuni.”
Sadly, Bandai Namco has offered no indication whether Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered might also be released for the Xbox One: the original game was a PlayStation 3 exclusive. For more information, keep an eye on Bandai Namco’s website.
