Some sumptuous new shots have arrived of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, the RPG collaboration between Japanese powerhouses Level-5 and Studio Ghibli.
They depict protagonist Oliver having a grand old time trotting around a desert, fighting over some cheese (or maybe a biscuit?) and encountering a rather large lady bejewelled with crown, bell-earrings and pointy horns. Ogle them through the break.
The RPG is currently being localised for the west and is expected to arrive late January 2013 on PS3.

Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino has told Famitsu the firm and Studio Ghibli’s would consider a sequel to Ni no Kuni should the title do well overseas. Hino also said he is confident the west will give the title a chance considering the success of past titles from Level-5. It was also noted in the interview that the reason for a delayed release in the west was due to the team taking its time to ensure a proper translation, especially considering the title contains over one million words. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will release during the first quarter of 2013 on PS3 complete with a digital version of the Magic Master book accessible from the game menu. Thanks, Andriasang.
