Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (二ノ国 白き聖灰の女王, literally "Second Country: The Queen of White Sacred Ash"), also called The Another World, is a video game developed by Level-5 (known for Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven) alongside Studio Ghibli, who designed the characters and areas of the game.
The game is an updated port of the original Nintendo DS game Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madōshi (二ノ国 漆黒の魔導士, literally "Second Country: The Jet-Black Mage"), which was released on December 9, 2010 in Japan only. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on January 22, 2013 in the United States and February 1, 2013 in Europe.

Itirst announced in 2008. Originally launched exclusively on the Nintendo DS, it was announced in 2010 that the game would receive a PlayStation 3 release. While following the same basic story as the DS version, Level-5 revealed that the PlayStation version will include new artwork, graphics, data, and story developments.
Ni no Kuni features an original score by Joe Hisaishi, who has scored several films with Studio Ghibli. All the music in the game was performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
An interesting and well written, though somewhat predictable story; you’ll see many things coming anything from 10 minutes to several hours before they occur. That doesn’t make it any less interesting though; the characters are charming and will keep you in the heart of the story. The most interesting parts are generally the full anime cutscenes and it’s a shame that they don’t last as long as you’d love them to.
The majority of Ni no Kuni's cutscenes are run in-game, but a few cutscenes are animated and done by Studio Ghibli .

Presentation and Audio
Studio Ghibli’s style is at the core of the game and it is an incredibly high standard and consistent throughout. The FMV’s are brilliant if not short and unfortunately a little uncommon. The voice acting is generally great though some minor character my sound a little over the top. The consistency of the dialogue is great with Drippy but the English voice actors do use some American words which feel a little out of place. The soundtrack is played by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra; the large array of instrument is used to great effect and adds scale to the game.
There is a ton of depth to everything in the game; from raising familiars to completing errands and even alchemy. The combat is generally quite fun but the AI can get in the way at times. There is no lack of things to do in the game and it should easily be at least a 30 - 40 hour game on normal difficulty. The game does offer an easier mode for anyone who’s more story orientated and it should help to significantly reduce what would be large difficulty spikes in normal. The extensive sets of tutorials are paced at a very reasonable level but it does mean that you won’t get to the heart of the game for quite a while.
