Ni no Kuni Logo - Featured ImageAmazon has recently dropped its listed price for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. The game was originally at the full retail price of $59.99, but has now been reduced to $39.99. For only two-thirds of its original cost, it looks like a good deal for those who couldn’t spend $60 before. There is currently no word as of now if this is a temporary deal or a permanent price-cut, but it’s definitely something those wanting the game to take advantage of.

Ni No Kuni looks like the type of game that will appeal to just about anybody who is a fan of RPGs. The art and animation style by Studio Ghibli, musical score by Joe Hisaishi, and balanced game mechanics by Level-5 are attracting enough to check this game out.

Ni No Kuni was published by Namco Bandai, the same folks that are bringing us Project X Zone on the Nintendo 3DS later this year. Seeing as Namco Bandai has been willing to support RPGs so far, it may be worth some of our time and money to help support this company if we want to see more games like this published in the future.

  • Stryj

    Still need it on Wii U.

    • Extremely doubtful. The Wii U’s installed based is much to small for Namco/Bandai to pay much heed.

    • And yet they’re co-developing the new Smash Bros.

    • yea they know Smash Bros will sell a lot and might sell Wii U’s, not just in Japan

    I’d love to grab the game. But honestly by the time I get around to playing it, it’ll be $20 already, so I will have to hold off. (Still need to get a PS3 anyway).

    • madmofo145

      Perhaps (although the PS3 should likely come first). Occasionally games like this get a bit cheaper but then as stock runs out, will return to there original price, or may become even more expensive. In this generation I’ve learned never to assume a JRPG will be available for more then a month or two at a reasonable price.

    • smacd

      Thats a fair analysis. Although Ni No Kuni seems to have had a pretty high print run so I’m not too worried about it.

      I’m also holding off to get PS3 until the inevitable post-E3 price drop (i’ll be pretty mad if they have another big press event about the PS4 and not have the price drop on the PS3).

    • I’m in that same camp. No point me buying it now as I have tons of games to play. The $20 mark is when i’ll pounce.

  • Mco

    upsetting for those who paid $59.99 when it first came out.(Myself included) Overall its an awesome game. I really enjoyed it and the graphic and color of the game is amazing

  • This is likely an effort to price match target which has the same sale this week
