Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch development studio Level-5 Games will have a big announcement next year. It seems the studio will be taking to E3 next year to announce an upcoming PS4 title.
Skipping over this year’s PlayStation Experience, Level-5 Games will present their next title at E3. Company boss Akihiro Hino confirmed the news during a live stream of White Knight Chronicles II, a game that Japanese PlayStation Plus members will be receiving for free this month. During the stream, Hino mentioned that he wanted the new title to exceed the the scale of White Knight Chronicles.
There is no word as of yet on what kind of game Level-5 could be making. The studio could be working on a new White Knight Chronicles, or even a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. There is also the possibility that the game will be an all new series as well. Whether or not the title will be a PS4 exclusive is not known at this point.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is perhaps Level-5’s most successful game at this point. The title won many “Best RPG of the Year” awards the year that it was released. The title was a collaboration with famous animated filmmaker Studio Ghibli, who created the game’s animated sequences. The plot of Ni no Kuni follows a young boy named Oliver, who has just lost his mother. A fairy named Drippy soon leads Oliver to another world which has been taken over by the evil wizard Shadar. The two set out with hopes of finding a way to bring back Oliver’s mother. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch found much praise, especially for its unique battle system that combined traditional JRPG combat with fast-paced Western RPG combat.
