Level 5’s announced this morning that Ni No Kuni will come to Europe and US next year via Namco Bandai.

It’ll come west as Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

The announcement came at the company’s Vision event in Japan. No date was confirmed for the release other than just 2012.

The Level 5 press release didn’t confirm what platforms the game would release in both continents on in the release: a DS version launched last year in Japan, while the PS3 version is releasing next month.

The RPG, a collaboration between Level 5 and Japanese animation giant Studio Ghibli, was first confirmed for release in the west at Tokyo Game Show last month by Level 5 boss Akihiro Hino for the PS3 version at least.

A formal announcement from Namco Bandai should be expected next week.
