Ni no Kuni review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Ni no Kuni (developed by Level-5 in collaboration with Studio Ghibli, published by Namco Bandai) for PlayStation 3. It’s the Studio Ghibli RPG. I’m willing to bet a large portion of you are sold just on that premise, others might want to watch the actual gameplay… and then they’ll be sold. It’s fantastic: Think Dragon Quest VIII but without everything looking like Dragon Ball. Also, the battle mechanics are much better (so long as you’re alone, it seems), the world’s dripping with puns, and there’s even manzai in Scottish accents. I don’t know how that works, but damn if it wasn’t a hoot. This video review features video gameplay footage of Ni no Kuni for PS3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s TJ.
