Role-playing fans have been waiting on this one for a looong time. Or maybe it just seems like a "looong time."

Colorful, engaging and above all else, traditional , Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will finally descend upon North American shores early next year. And for those of you who haven't been following along, this new trailer shows off exactly what you desire: gameplay, the vast, attractive world, and that unbelievable art style that so many have already enjoyed in Japan.

This is one of the most promising RPGs out there, in our opinion. While many may be skeptical due to its cartoony, even kiddie presentation, we have nothing but high expectations. All we're hoping for is a well-paced old-school RPG with plenty of great exploration and combat, and an interesting storyline. Is that really too much to ask for these days?
