If you were a big fan of Dragon Quest VIII for the PS2 and have been disappointed with the direction the series has taken, Level-5 has something special for you. Ni no Kuni (Loosely translated to Another World) may not have anything to do with Dragon Quest, but it takes what the company learned with developing DQ VIII and runs wild with it on the PS3. Many media outlets are already calling it Game of the Show for TGS 2011, and with good cause. It looks like a simple JRPG, that uses the best cel-shading we’ve ever seen. The good folks at Kotaku have a 13-minute movie showing tons of in-game footage, and extended trailer and more. Sit back and enjoy what looks like one of the most exciting PS3 exclusives to hit in 2012 (North American release). For those interested in importing, Ni no Kuni arrives in Japan on November 17th.
Isn’t that just awesome? If there weren’t so many other huge releases coming out this holiday season I would have imported it in a heartbeat. As it is though, I’m going to have to sit it out and wait for the localized version to arrive sometime in 2012.
