Thank you Lord Jesus.

Early 2012 is going to be even better than this holiday season. Ni No Kuni, Ninja Gaiden 3, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Asuras Wrath, Dragon's Dogma, it's almost too much.

is studio Ghibli handling the story as well? or just the art/animation? because I truly love all of their flicks.
 
also is Hayao Miyazaki involved in this at all?

Wow I can't believe it is getting a Western release. I wonder if it will be out in Europe too.

I'm hoping it's a return to form for Level-5 RPG's after the blandness of White Knight Chronicles.

@Grissefar: it probably will, because EU is a big western market.

And even if it doesn't: import, import, import.

This kind of made my day. It will come out just in time for me to receive my new TV.

Uh oh. Is it some pretentious story about a little girl having some kind of journey of self-discovery with anti-technology overtones?

dunno who will be publishing the game but if its nisa or atlus, then the fear is from atlus because they are more or less a NA and a JP only. then we would probably wait 6months or a year for the game to come to EU.

But will that DS game also come?

Maybe they didn't want to figure out how to do it without the giant book and decided it wasn't worth if it had to include it? Personally I would love to see both versions come over.

Porco Rosso. Pretentious sums up your knowledge of Miyazaki's works.

I'm hoping it'll come out on 3DS in the West, it could make the transition like Fantasy Life

You mean you've seen two movies where your statement might be kind of true if you squint and ignore the context of moral consequences of choices. You didn't offend me but you sure come across like this dude.
