Well we were all looking forward to it, some of us even updated our ps3 from the homebrew friendly 3.41 firmware to the nasty locked locked 4.0 in preparation for it too. But the english localization of Ni No Kuni has fallen from the early 2012 slot to late 2012, and thats North Americas ETA, Europe is looking at Q1 2013 according to the lates press release.
This is not all bad news, although english subtitles would of sufficed, and in fact be preferable to some players. Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino expressed “it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them”.
The localisation will have both japanese and english voice acting, with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. My only request is to please not use any of the cast from sailormoon, although its a fantastic anime, the English voice acting was unbearable, the German dub is where its at folks, classic.
