I have put about 15 hours into this game and love it. The game has a "kiddish" feel but also enough depth for the hardcore RPG gamers. The use of familiars and the leveling up abilities of each familiar gives it a pokemon feel that should be "familiar" to every RPG fan. The Cut scenes are awesome which makes the lengthy dialogue worth every minute. I wouldn't give it any less than an 7.5 out of 10.
When I first came upon the to be released title known as "NI NO KUNI wrath of the white witch", I had little to no expectations. Just a new game to drop in the Q.
This game seems as if it were made for younger players, with an emphasis on the tutorial system and getting you acclimated to the ever advancing battle style. The tutorial system is integrated throughout the entirety of the game making the transitions in the battle system seem seamless, and the character development deep and complex.
The art style is that of any number of anime movies like "Spirited Away", Princess Mononoke", "Howl's Castle", etc... It's like playing an anime.
This game surprised the shell out of me, and I'm sure it will do the same for anyone who enjoys RPGs, anime, or both.
