Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered has finally arrived on Xbox and Game Pass today, following years of the beloved JRPG being available on PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch.
Announcing during Tokyo Game Show, Ni No Kuni’s surprise release on Xbox will be followed next year by its sequel, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.
The former PlayStation exclusive has gradually made its way to PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, but has been made even more widely available thanks to the Xbox version, and it’s free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
First released in 2011, Ni No Kuni gained immediate attention for its art style that looked to have been straight out of a Studio Ghibli film. That was for good reason, of course, as the My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away animation studio produced each of the game’s animated sequences.
In our original 9/10 review, IGN said: “With Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Level-5 has delivered something special: a JRPG that feels like the games of yore, looks like the games of tomorrow, and draws heavy inspiration from the classics old-school JRPGs fans adore.”
