Level 5’s confirmed it’s to release Ni No Kuni for the US next year.

A more specific timeline wasn’t given other than just early 2012 by Level 5 boss Akihiro Hino, but said that production on an English version was currently being done.

The news was confirmed at a Sony Asia press conference at TGS, so this is only for the PS3 version. A DS version also launched in Japan last November.

Hino also said that there’ll be additional story content for the PS3 version which will continue where the DS version ended. Both games stories have the same starting point, but differ from the midpoint within the PS3 SKU.

There’ll also be post-release DLC after launch, but Hino couldn’t say anymore.

Ni No Kuni launches on PS3 in Japan in November.
