Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch download PC
Ni no Kuni is the result of Level 5 cooperation, a studio well known to players from the production of the latest installments of the Dragon Quest series and Ghibli – the most famous Japanese animation studio – in which there were such pictures as My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Scarlet Pilot or the Oscar-winning Spirited Away.
The game is a classic jRPG title which, thanks to its rich visual layer, moving screenplay and the charm and style characteristic of Ghibla's films, resembles a wonderful interactive animation. The title was created with Nintendo DS and Playstation 3 consoles in mind. Both versions of the game have the same storyline, but they present events from a different perspective and have different endings.
The main character is a 13-year-old boy named Olivier, who, together with his loving mother Allie, leads a peaceful life in the city of Hotroit. One day his best friend asks him to test a new invention – a self-constructed racing car. Unfortunately, during the first ride, the car falls into the river and Olivier would have drowned with him if it had not been for the rescue from Allie's side. A few days later, the boy's mother dies from an inexplicable disease. Desperate Olivier tries to cry in the plush toy he got from his mother. This suddenly comes alive and invites him on a journey to a magical world. In this mysterious world people from our reality have a double, which is inseparably connected with them. As it turns out, Allie on the other side is a mighty sorceress fighting the evil and mighty magician Jabo. Suspecting that her struggle may be related to her mother's death, the boy decides to set off to help overcome the evil and perhaps in this way regain her mother.
The game can be divided into two basic elements: fight and exploration. During the game we visit cities presented in full 3D. We will find in them, what's standard in RPG games, inns or various shops, where we will be supplied for the next journey, as well as a number of independent characters who have tasks for us, which we will perform in many different locations. They are usually divided into two parts, between which there is a place where we can rest and regenerate (health and magic points). Beyond the puzzles of logic and hidden treasures, the land is full of creatures that we will have to fight against. If we do not wish to do so at a given moment, we can try to escape them.
The combat system is a combination of classic tournaments and real-time duels. Each character on the battlefield moves in real time, but the actions can be taken every few seconds – the time to the next one is counted down by the appropriate indicator. In our own turn we give orders to our team, such as: attack, defend yourself, use an item or special skills. Olivier can use magic as well as perform standard attacks, which are not very effective. Therefore, most of the weight during the fight falls on the Imagines that help us, which are under the control of each member of the team. In addition to Oliver, there will be Jairo and Maru, who steal items from opponents, and Maru, whose game on the league can pardon the monsters fighting against us.
Both the visual and musical setting of the title is at the highest level. Although the graphics engine is not as extensive as in many other console blockbuster productions, the cel-shading technology and the visual design of characters and environments using the Ghibli studio's film stylistics make Ni no Kuni a beautifully looking game.
