Yesterday it was reported by Andriasang that Ni no Kuni, the DS game developed by Level-5 and Studio Ghibli, will be crisping up its already gorgeous visuals for a PS3 port and today a trailer has been found (on the official site) to confirm the superb visuals. With the move into HD, there have been a few games that are said to be like playing an animated movie but the polygonal wireframes still poked through dispelling that claim. The talent of Studio Ghibli (makers of Kiki’s Delivery Service and Princess Mononoke to name but a few) and Professor Layton developers Level-5 have succeeded where the others failed because this really does look like a playable animated movie! The DS version, Ni no Kuni: Another World, is set for a December 9th release in Japan with the PS3 version scheduled for sometime in 2011. I just hope that includes a Western release too and won’t have to wait another indefinite period for it to be translated.
