I'd say its fairly likely to happen next year, given Level-5's good relationship with Nintendo, and the game's whimsical art style that fits with what Nintendo is typically associated with.

Money from copies sold - cost to port = profit/loss

considering the low install base and the poor sales of 3rd party software, there is not likely to be much profit if any, so I doubt it. But you never know.

The game isn't as good as everyone makes out to be anyway.

Doubt it, just wait til PS4 and get a cheap used PS3, it has several exclusives worth getting it for, some of which have zero chance of moving to another system.

The Wii U will have a much stronger install base by the time fall rolls around. Right now its not to great because well... would you spend $350 for NSMBU, NintendoLand, and (if you like FPS's) ZombiU? Its features are really nice, and I will eventually buy one, but right now, the games available are not ones that I would preferably spend my time playing.

I'd much prefer playing the Operation Rainfall games and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Oh, I do plan on getting a PS3 for Ni No Kuni. I'm just wondering how likely a port is, because I like Nintendo and I want the best for them. Plus, if it is announced soon, I wouldn't have to buy a PS3.

I hope so. Then I can get some Wii U Wizard editions too.

The first 2/3 of your post were spot on. The last 1/3 was way off. The game is excellent.

Rather unlikely, Level 5 has a pretty good relation with Sony too you know.
I think it would have been announced by now for japan in that case.

Wii U owners only buy NIntendo 1st party games, I doubt any 3rd party would even bother porting their games to Wii U.

The game started off on the DS, Level 5 then made a PS3 version of the game that truly showed off the Ghibli art style. Given how long ago the game came out in Japan, don't expect a Wii U version at all.

The game is great though, easily worth the price of a PS3.

Its the fact that it originally came out for the DS that I think its possible.
