Amazon 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.
