JRPG? Ehh, maybe if they think it's marketable to a western audience.
Oh, they're not bothering to translate the title because they think only weeaboos will bother buying it? *crosses off list*


Because only weeaboos like Princess Mononake, right?
/rollseyes


Princess is english, Mononake is a name. "ni no kuni" is gibberish. Your point?

Actually, the original name for the movie is "Mononoke Hime." Though technically, that translates to Princess Mononoke.

Yep, and Mononoke still isn't a name, it's monster/spirit

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Oh and C

If it weren't for the fact that I love Studio Ghibli movies, I probably wouldn't even bat an eyelash at this game. The visuals are fantastic. Loved Howl's Moving Castle.

i don't get it... while i don't think it was bad, it didn't seem to par with their previous works. such as, Laputa, Nausica, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, even Kiki's Delivery Service and Totoro.... all of those seem far better than Howl's Moving Castle.

(i haven't watched Ponyo or Arietta yet so i can't comment on those..)

Howl's just felt bland in comparison to those. wasn't bad by any means though..

I had no idea it was a Studio Ghibli game. So yeah, that jewel will be purchased release day.

I loved Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service. Never saw Laputa, Totoro and Arietta though and I heard Ponyo (while good) had absolutely no conflict. I wasn't a fan of Nausica and Princess Mononoke. Honestly though Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle are my favorite Studio Ghibli movies.

no conflict as in no action or no conflict as in all forms of conflict?
