Ni No Kuni has been delayed by a week, meaning it will now release on February 1 in Europe instead of January 25.

After spending much of last year focused on the west, Namco Bandai looks set to turn its attention homewards for the coming year.

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.
