Bandai Namco’s brand manager, Randy Le, says, “For those who missed this amazing adventure, or those who would like to feel the magic again, these two Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch releases represent the perfect opportunity to get lost in a world of wonder, danger, love, and friendship. A beautiful and compelling tale told by expert storytellers with a heartbreaking score, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch stands alongside the best games of the last generation. We’re excited to let gamers rediscover this rich world on modern systems.” Check out the announcement trailer down below.

Originally developed by LEVEL-5, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch’s story unfolds through animation storyboarded and created by the legendary Studio Ghibli, with music composed by award-winning musician Joe Hisaishi. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch tells the charming yet tragic story of Oliver, a young boy who embarks on a journey to another world in the hope of bringing back his mother following a tragic incident. With a copy of the Wizard’s Companion in hand and his pal Drippy by his side, Oliver must traverse exotic lands to tame familiars, take on malevolent foes, and overcome the countless challenges that stand between him and his mother’s salvation.
