Direct-Feed Games claims that the original game will be ported to Nintendo Switch in late 2019, while the remastered version will be coming to PC and PlayStation 4 around the same time. Check out a screenshot of the Switch version below.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was originally released for PlayStation 3 in December 2011 in Japan and January 2013 worldwide; it is based on the Japan-only Nintendo DS game Ni no Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn. A sequel, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, was released for PC and PlayStation 4 last year. OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn felt that “the game’s excellence should not be underestimated,” ultimately awarding the title a Distinction (4/5).
