The PS3 version of Ni No Kuni will be brought to the West by Namco Bandai in 2012.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, as it will be known, is an RPG with gorgeous cartoon visuals. It’s a collaboration between Level-5 and Japanese animation company Studio Ghibli, who were responsible for the likes of the much loved Spirited Away.

The story of Ni No Kuni sees the mother of Oliver, the 13-year old protagonist, die suddenly, in which thanks to a magical book given to him by a fairy disguised as a doll, he sets out to another world in an attempt to revive her.

There’s also a DS version, although Namco Bandai didn’t mention it in the announcement.
