Originally due on the 25th of January in Europe and Australasia, Namco Bandai has today announced that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has been pushed back until the 1st of February. On their Twitter account, Namco Bandai UK blamed logistics delays for the hold-up. As compensation, they are offering the download of a familiar for free, the Draggle, which will be available at launch. This will not affect the American release of the game, which will still be ready to be purchased on the 22nd of January.
Heralded by some as one of the last great hopes for the JRPG genre and featuring a gorgeous watercolour aesthetic, Ni no Kuni is a collaboration between Level-5 and Studio Ghibli and will be available exclusively for the PS3.
