Namco Bandai’s announced it’s releasing Ni No Kuni for PS3 in Q1 2013 in Europe, a major shove from merely this year.

The Level-5/Studio Ghibli RPG was confirmed for a western localisation at Level-5 Vision last October on PS3 as Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, with a release this year.

Not to be, though.

“We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them,” said L5 boss Akihiro Hino.

“To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own language.”

The game will be localised from start to finish through five languages, including English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
