Level-5 CEO Teases Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for Windows PC

We’ve learned that Level-5 might be planning a PC version for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

The news comes via an interview between Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino and PC Gamer at this year’s Gamescom, where the company boss teased the potential release.

“I’ll leave that up to your imagination for now, but stay tuned for more official announcements. I’ll leave it at that,” said after being asked whether or not the PlayStation 3-exclusive would ever make it to PC.

The game’s sequel, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, is launching for both PC and PlayStation 4 on January 19th next year, in both North America and Europe. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough written and video preview for the game from this year’s E3 here.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I hope so, I never got around to finishing the first game unfortunately.

  • Malascus

    Me neither, but i heard there are different versions of the first game that have different stories or something?

  • Migi

    The first Ni No Kuni game is kinda how they should make a pokemon game. Kinda sad the 2nd game won’t have same kinda gameplay sense in leveling up creature’s.

  • Migi

    I platinumed the first game and i don’t recall there being a different story or version. Worse thing about the first Ni No Kuni is the dubtitles and i hope the 2nd will have a proper translation.

  • MLG Barroth

    YES

  • Uncle Ocelot

    There was a Japan only DS version that came first, but I think it’s the same story.

  • MISTER6AME

    More Japanese games will come to PC eventually.

  • alterku

    For a while this was one of the only reasons I wanted a PS3. It would be nice to see more people get to play it.

  • Fandangle

    They did make a Pokémon game, it was called Yokai-watch.

  • LEGIONARY1234

    tha will be a nightmare for Fag Chocolate Yihadists!!

    if only they put down their phones

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Its been happening for the past few years. People have to stop acting like its not been a semi constant thing now.

    Word of advice- catch them all, don’t raise them all.
    Learned that the hard way.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    South Korea seems to be able to cater to both markets in a better way.

  • chaoguy

    Same here. Where’d you all give up on it? Mine was around the boss in the Pig Town.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    must be the environment, people probably don’t commute as much there

  • Bitterbear

    Yay, moar broken, unoptimized Japanese games that crash without warning.

  • Michael Richardson

    Awesome. Never owned a PS3, so this would allow me to experience one of the few games I regretted not getting to play on it.

  • Shattno

    It’s pretty much the same, but the PS3 version expands on the DS version and has a new ending and is also more westernised.

  • Blantron

    Switch plz

  • Yeah because all Japanese games on PC are unoptimized. But everything on switch is perfect. HA!

  • When the game comes to PC it will finally make a profit.

  • Elias Baas

    There was a Japan only DS version that came first, but I think it’s the same story.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Its more South Korea not being stuck in a “video games are toys for teens” mentality and aren’t as insular of a culture as Japan.
