This afternoon (Japan time), Level-5 held a press conference about Ni No Kuni: The Another World, its collaboration with Studio Ghibli that is coming to Japan on the DS this December. The conference began with a demonstration of the game on DS, in which the game's interface and battle system was shown. The game includes a detailed map that includes information about various locations, a spell system that involves tracing shapes on the touch screen, and whimsical enemies such as a large purple mouselike boss.
Here are some screenshots from the DS demo:
After the DS demonstration, Level-5 announced that there will be a Ni No Kuni game for the PlayStation 3. The PS3 trailer featured high-definition animation for the in-game graphics. It also had a different subtitle from the DS game, and Level 5 confirmed that they hope to make a different game in the same setting for the PS3 so that players can enjoy both games. Currently, Level-5 plans to release the PS3 game in 2011. No North American version has yet been announced for Ni No Kuni on the DS or the PS3.
