Namco announced today that Europe will see Ni no Kuni sometime during Q1 2013.

Europe won’t get to play Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch until Q1 2013, but North America isn’t getting much sooner either. Namco Bandai announced this morning that No no Kuni will be released sometime during Winter 2012 in North America. 
 
Like the European release of the game, the North American version will feature both Japanese and English-language voice tracks.


It was originally supposed to be released in both regions early 2012.

Disappointing, but more time to play other games I suppose

Blows, but I'm already swamped with games and schoolwork. It's still more than likely getting $60 from me.

Goddammit, had I known this was gonna happen I would've just imported it. I suppose it's not too late seeing as I'm gonna have to wait another ~10 months otherwise, but it's not like I have a shortage of games so perhaps I'll just wait it out.
 
It seems Namco Bandai has been doing this a lot lately -- wasn't Tales of Graces f supposed come out like a year ago? At least that's still scheduled for next month, but I'm honestly not that interested in it as I still have quite the backlog of Tales imports to play through. Maybe I'll pick it up anyway though just to support the franchise getting localized.

That's coming out soon? Awesome, completely forgot about that game. Tales of Vesperia was one of my favorite games this generation, and I don't even like JRPG's that much. Anyway, this game still looks cool, will have to play it at some point.
