Finally a more reasonable price for the switch version. Might bite
Too pricey for me on PS4, but doesn't have a terrible Switch premium, so thumbs up.
Lol, a rerelease already???
Shut up and take my money

Sorry, price was correct as you stated. My eyes are the problem. Apologies.
I'm right in saying this is better than the second one?

Nothing major only graphics as far as I know. They may reveal more later on. But according to Gamatsu:

"Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered on PlayStation 4 and PC features brilliant new visual enhancements, letting PlayStation 4 players enjoy the game at 1080p resolution and with a super-smooth frame rate of 60 frames per second. PlayStation 4 Pro users can also opt for true 4K resolution at 30 frames per second, or 1440p at 60 frames per second.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on Nintendo Switch is the first handheld iteration of the acclaimed title, letting Switch players experience the game in 720p resolution at 30 frames per second in TV mode at home, or in handheld mode on-the-go. The game retains its original dynamic fight system, combining real-time action and turn-based tactical elements, as well as the dozens of locations and hundreds of creatures that comprise the vast universe of Ni no Kuni.

Originally developed by Level-5, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch’s story unfolds through animation storyboarded and created by the legendary Studio Ghibli, with music composed by award-winning musician Joe Hisaishi. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch tells the charming yet tragic story of Oliver, a young boy who embarks on a journey to another world in the hope of bringing back his mother following a tragic incident. With a copy of the Wizard’s Companion in hand and his pal Drippy by his side, Oliver must traverse exotic lands to tame familiars, take on malevolent foes, and overcome the countless challenges that stand between him and his mother’s salvation."

1080p 60fps sounds good. But still too expensive for just that . Thanks for info

Its almost like they heard the many cries on HUKD for a re-release! Nearly every thread for the sequel decended into that debate
Switch tax :/
Paid like £4 for this years ago on PS3. This is way too much for a remaster.

I'm right in saying this is better than the second one?


Massively. I loved this game but couldn’t even finish the second
I know Japanese game rules have changed since the initial release of this. Gambling isn’t allowed anymore, is there any talks about the casino being removed from this? That would be heartbreaking.
Is it better than the second one? I found that underwhelming

In my opinion, whilst there are quite fun bits to NNK2, NNK2 is in a totally different [lower] league quality-wise.

The first one felt like a great game the whole way to me, had a very absorbing story, beautiful graphics and very importantly, it had Drippy, a companion that was lovely unlike that awful, awful irritating little yellow Partick Thistle mascot lookalike gobsh*te that by the end was managing to spoil every scene he was in by being a constant flippant wee twerp.

Switch gets a simple port of the PS3 version and it's the same price of the remaster and it's only 30fps and 720p!? Why doesn't Bandai just call it the "we can't be bothered edition" This should of been £20 on Switch.

If it’s just graphics I’ll get the Switch version
WeskerLives04/07/2019 14:36

Switch gets the vaniila version off the PS3 and even then it's only 30fps …Switch gets the vaniila version off the PS3 and even then it's only 30fps and 720P!? Bandai really are pathetic when it comes to the Switch. I hope Nintendo kick them out on their arse when they ask to co-develop Smash 6.


The funny thing is that the original came out on the DS!
They're finally remastering this? Brilliant

Cause the original was awesome lol
While a good deal compared to other sites, it's still far to expensive for the offering - Seen many other Remasters around the £25 mark at launch. I didn't get around to playing this on the PS3... well truth be told I started and didn't finish it due to how padded it felt. But I'm genuinely interested just at a much lower asking price.
overpriced for what is technically an upscale and nothing more. nothing else has been remastered.

Will buy when the price drops as low as it did on ps3.

While I'm happy this is getting redone, I'll wait until the price comes down to an acceptable level.

This. The game strikes me as a "re-release". Remaster is just an excuse to charge more than £20 for it. I've played through the game once, I remember it quite well, nice story, don't need to play again any time soon.
Loved this game and the second too. Interested to play it again upscaled. But, it’s a minor improvement that doesn’t really warrant a re-release at this sort of price band... especially since the original was heavily reduced and also free at one point.

Also, it’s worth noting that the PS3 original was cel shaded and even when played in its original form, actually looks high res.

I would have expected this to be just a cheap remaster available on the PS Store...
Ah **** here we go again... Well, when it hits £20

I am the exact same!
Just redownloaded the second one though and might try to finish it.

I stopped close to the end I think, when I had to be forced to go collect many people for the stupid kingdom building lol. That annoyed the crap out of me!

The first game is like 9/10 to for me. Second game 6/10
Cash grab be as cheap buying a ps3 and get it when its 4 quid on the store. I'll no doubt own this before 2020 draws to an end though as my addiction of buying playstation things I dont need ravishes me. Heat for the find plenty of game there.
Terribly done cover art
