Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch –Remastered Review
Of note, I did not play the original Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on PS3,so this is my first experience with it, and I played it on PS4.The game places the player in command of a Young Boy named Oliver who goes on an inter-world quest to restore peace and heal the broken-hearted.While the graphics of the game are very cartoony and fun -- the story,gameplay, and well-balanced difficulty really show this game was made withmature players in mind.
In addition to commanding Oliver, the player eventually gets to command anadditional two players as part of a three-character party. Each of those threecharacters, in-turn, have control of three creatures which are called familiars.Therefore, at any given point the player can be equipping, controlling, trainingabout 12 different characters. Further, additional familiars can be tamed inbattle, added to the party’s reserves. Even FURTHER, there can be anabundance of EVEN MORE familiars stored elsewhere.
Sound complicated? It’s really not. While the battle system is certainly unique,it’s brought on in a way in which it is extremely accessible to players. And for those hooked on creature-collecting, there plenty of that to be done too.
In addition to battling and creature collection, there is a vast open world toexplore, eventually made even more accessible by sea and air travel. There arehuge numbers of side-quests and bounties, and most of them have hilarious and ongoing backstories. The main story is also deep, dark, and fun but somehow quirky and funny at the same time. It really is a masterpiece of agame. I highly recommend it.
Overall Score: 9.5/10
