Namco has delayed Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in Europe from "this year" to a tentative Q1 2013 release date. Level-5 confirmed that the title would be localized late last year, but since then there has been little news about the project.
“We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them,” said L5 boss Akihiro Hino.
He continued, “To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own language.”
Subsequently, the game will have full localization in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
