Studio Ghibli, the animation studio behind classic anime like My neighbour Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service, is making a Nintendo DS game title Ni no Kuni with Fukuoka-based developer Level-5. It is Studio Ghibli's first venture into video games.


The secret to Level 5's success, says CEO/President Akihiro Hino, is having a really awesome trailer with lots of visual images that target the game's core audience. Said trailer's gameplay footage is "not final."


The best thing about Level 5's booth wasn't a game. Wasn't even a game trailer. It was the box for the company's upcoming collaboration with animation house Studio Ghibli, Ninokuni. The entirety of the final retail package was on display, including glorious box art and ridiculously extravagant spell book (which you'll actually need to use while playing). This can't be cheap, and might not even look like this when it hits the West, but that doesn't matter. For now, just enjoy the craftsmanship
