Ni No Kuni Is Coming To America

Speaking at a Tokyo Game Show event earlier today, Level-5 Akihiro Hino boss made a lot of people reading this website very happy, announcing that the PS3 version of gorgeous RPG Ni No Kuni would be getting a North American release.

It's due out in early 2012, and while no mention was made of a European/Australasian release, it's not like that matters: with the PS3 being region free, if the title isn't released where you live, importing won't be a hassle.

It might be for the post-release DLC Hino also briefly touched on at the event (though he didn't actually say what it was), but that's another worry for another day.

    Even if there is a release date for Australia, who would seriously wait for it anyway?

    Like many others, I plan to import this before the US release.

      Sorry, I mean pre-order. My previous post only works if I have a TARDIS.

    Awesome news! Considering how strong Sony is in Europe. We will see a Pal release at some stage. There is no way that Sony would spend money localising the game just for the USA. I cannot wait! Could be one of the PS3's (unique) killer apps.

    Wasn't there a DS version as well? Any word if that's crossing the ocean as well?

    yesssssssssssssssssssssss!

    Awesome news. Would love to see the DS version come across as well but I'm not entirely sure on that one. Still, will definitely grab the PS3 one.
