The merging of film storytelling sensibilities with interactive media has been an increasingly popular trend through this console generation, and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch aims to do just that with the work of one of Japan’s most beloved storytellers. The problem is, while both the trademark Miyazaki melancholy and partner Studio Ghibli’s signature art style are faithfully replicated, the gameplay it decorates is incredibly average and doesn’t boast much of a challenge to compensate. All the atmosphere in the world can only carry a game so far, and though there’s nothing really wrong with the game itself it does nothing to really innovate or stand out. If you’re head-over-heels for Ghibli or can’t get enough of raising stables of virtual monsters this will scratch your specific itch, but otherwise this is a well-dressed yet ultimately average, forgettable game.
