    Didn't see a thread on this, so I figured I'd start one.

    This is the new PS3 exclusive JRPG from Level-5 (Professor Layton series, White Knight Chronicles), Studio Ghibli (Howl's Moving Castle, The Secret World of Arrietty), and Namco-Bandai.
    IGN has some good videos up of what the game looks like in action: Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - PlayStation 3 - IGN

    The collector's ed. was just announced, and it looks really good:Meet the Prettiest PS3 Collector's Edition of Them All.
    You get the game, a plush doll of one of the main characters, two DLC charatcers, and the 300-page hardcover book that was included with the DS version in Japan (unfortunately, the DS version won't be coming to the West).

    NOTE: The regular release of the game will be at all major retailers, but the collector's ed. is only available via Namco-Bandai's website. It's up for pre-order here: Shop Namco Bandai Games Online Store. Also. like many international orders, even though this is a pre-order, they will "test the waters" to make sure you have enough funds, and will take the full amount out of your account. They'll put it back in a few days later, but be careful if the $108 would put you at NSF.

    Looks awesome. Ever since I heard the first details, I was pleased at the thought of Level-5 and Studio Ghibs working together on this.

    The wife and I are huge Ghibli fans, so we've been looking forward to this for a log time.

    Any international TF fans around that have played it?

    sad to hear about the DS version not coming over.
