Here's a very short list of games you should play if you like Ni no Kuni. Feel free to give more suggestions.

Dragon Quest 8 (PS2)
Dragon Quest 9 (DS)
Two games from the same developpers. You won't find any games that are more similar to Ni no Kuni.


Eternal Sonata (PS3)
The art style and combats are similar to Ni no Kuni. However, there is not world map and no familiar system.


Chrono Trigger (PS1, SNES, DS, PSN).
I don't know why, but the first time I played Ni no Kuni, it reminded me of Chrono Trigger. A true classic. If you never played the game, you have to buy it.

Lets not forgett other great Level-5 games like:
Dark Cloud
Dark Cloud 2 (aka Dark chronicle)
and my own personal favourite Rogue galaxy for the PS2

Both Dark Cloud 2 and Rogue Galaxy have a nice cellshaded graphic that should speak to people who enjoyed this game. Its not as simulair as DQ8 but ROgue Galaxy is atleast a good runner up in the "games that inspired NNK" cathegory.
Waiting for Ni no kuni (PS3), Final Fantasy X HD (PS3), Metro Last Light (PS3)

I've played all of them except Eternal Sonata, and that's on my shelf waiting for me eventually.

I realize I'm in the immeasurably small minority, but I've tried every one of them, and none of them appealed to me.
Dragon Quest 9 held my interest for longer than the rest, but it still wasn't for very long.
I know 95% of anyone who's ever played a jrpg seems to claim Chrono Trigger as their favorite, but eh...just didn't care for it.
I was more fond of Chrono Cross tbh, lol.
I still rather enjoyed Ni No Kuni. I can see the similarities to the Dragon Quest titles, but they're not so similar that 'if you like this game, then you will definitely love ___' or anything.
