Level-5 considering making a Ni no Kuni sequel if the game sells well overseas

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Despite being recently pushed back a few months from its Winter 2012 release window, there is a lot of excitement brewing over the Level-5 / Studio Ghibli collaboration Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. It should make those eagerly awaiting the game's release in the West excited to know that Level-5 is considering making a sequel. 

However, the chances of there being a sequel depend on a certain factor. At Namco Bandai's recent Gamers Day event, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino told Famitsu.com that he would like to make a sequel if the overseas version of Ni no Kuni meets strong sales.

Hiro seems confident that this can happen. In the interview with Famitsu, he noted successful examples from the developer's catalog of games, like Dark Cloud and Dark Chronicle, both of which sold better abroad than in Japan. Same thing for the Professor Layton series which, while very successful in its native land, was even more so overseas.

Aside from the possibility of a sequel, Hiro also mentioned the director in charge of Wrath of the White Witch's localization. While the game will be the first that the director will be localizing for Level-5, Hiro assures that he is someone with much experience with localization. 

Furthermore, he noted that the long wait for us in the West for the game was to give Level-5 time to produce a quality localization.

Look for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch sometime in the first quarter of 2013. Those excited for the game can express their excitement in the comment box below. Those who don't know about Ni no Kuni can check out the preview for the game here.
