Just curious. From a friend, stumbled upon it, watched a YouTube video of it; when did you first hear about Ni No Kuni.
This had actually flown under my radar in 2011, and I wouldn't have caught it were it not for EpicNameBro. He does the lore stuff for the Souls series on YouTube and he did a quick run through of the beginning of the game (couldn't do the rest due to copyright) but he recommended that everyone give it a try.
Needless to say, I thought it was worth following.
Currently playing: Tales of Xillia 2 (import) Waiting On: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (Jan. 22)
The animation in the IGN review frame caught my eye. Before I could finish watching the review, I was on Amazon preordering for release day delivery. I am pretty excited to give this a go! I especially love the art direction and the fresh gameplay aspects.
I hope that this is as gripping as JRPGs such as Xenoblade Chronicles and DQ8. No matter what, I will be holding on to this baby!
Heard about the DS version (probably on gamefaqs) Tried to keep up with it. Eventually found out about the PS3 version. Loosely followed it until I found out it was being localized then I kept my eye on it.
