Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (2013)

A Studio Ghibli JRPG!




This week, one bold host claims this is the best JRPG ever and that all others are stupid. The entire cast disagrees with both points.

Okay seriously though. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a lengthily-titled Studio Ghibli (yes, the Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle folks) role-playing game in the Japanese style, like Final Fantasy but prettier and more sensible but also more childish. You play as Oliver, a charming young boy who is taken to another dimension by his stuffed animal after he cries upon it. Yup. And in this fine another world, there are Pok-- err, familiars to be tamed, caught, and battled! Yup.
