SmashPad Streamkend with Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – January 26 at 2 PM ESTJanuary 26th, 2013 | Written by Chris Selogy | Topic: PlayStation 3, SmashPad Streamkend
As mentioned last week, this week’s SmashPad Streamkend will cover Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PlayStation 3. The newest game from famed JPRG developer Level 5 features a partnership with Studio Ghibli, who you may recognize for making movies like Princess Mononoke, for the game’s art style. animated cutscenes, and soundtrack. Ni No Kuni features Oliver, a young boy whose mother dies to save him from drowning, who gets the opportunity to potentially bring her back to life if he helps save a fantastical parallel world from an evil force that looms over it. One of the most unique things about the game is the Wizard’s Companion, an in-depth guide included in the game that offers a ton of information about the world, the game itself, and everything else you could really want in a compendium like this. That book is also available as a physical book in the extremely limited Wizard’s Edition of the game that was only made available in small quantities on Namco Bandai’s web store in North America.
Next week, our featured game for SmashPad Streamkend will be up in the air since there doesn’t seem to be a big game coming out, so we may go back to showcasing another classic of this generation like we did with Valkyria Chronicles last week. The week after that will be Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which will definitely be the featured game two weeks from now. If you didn’t manage to catch the Valkyria Chronicles stream, there seemed to be an unfortunate error in the archiving of the video on Twitch.tv’s end, so it isn’t available to watch elsewhere. That will be why I’ll start recording these streams on my end to upload on Youtube for those of you that missed them even though the quality won’t be great due to my streaming limitations at the moment.
As always, you can watch the video right from this page when it starts at 2 PM EST on Saturday or watch it directly from our Twitch.tv channel while chatting with us during the stream.
