Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is only a week away. JRPG fanatics everywhere are counting the days.
While the game boasts elements of old-school role-playing goodness, we didn't know if it would embrace the modern-day downloadable feature. In other words, we had no idea if Level-5 and Sony would make the game available digitally on the PlayStation Store.
Good news: they are. According to a recent Tweet from Level-5 product manager Scott Strichart, Ni no Kuni will indeed be available on the PSN in digital format. The only downside is that it may not be up on the Store on the same day as the physical copy hits store shelves (January 22). "If it's not the same day, it's not far behind," Strichart wrote. We'll have to wait and see when Wrath of the White Witch lands an official PSN release date; here's hoping it'll be before the month is out. Perhaps the following week, on January 29 when the Store updates again…?
Of course, considering the targeted audience for this game, I'm willing to bet that the vast majority are far more interested in owning the actual disc and box. Am I right?
