Ni no Kuni

Pesky E3 leaks aside, a new RPG on the Nintendo Switch is always a welcome sight. This next addition to the hybrid system’s catalog might be the most welcoming sight of all. Bandai Namco’s 2013 epic Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 20.

Back during its original western release, critics praised the game for its combat system, gorgeous presentation, and music. The latter two strengths only make sense due to Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle) and master composer Joe Hisaishi’s involvement with the project.

Ni no Kuni is also receiving a remastered version on PlayStation 4 and PC on the same date. The Switch, however, will not share in this, only receiving the base game. If earlier leaks on ResetEra are to be believed, though, then the Switch version is only missing out on resolution upscaling. We’ll likely have to wait until we have it in our hands before we can confirm that, however.

Will you be playing Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on Switch later this year? Have you played this gorgeous title before, or will this be your first time with the game? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
