Namco Bandai’s delayed the North American release of Level-5 and Studio Ghibli’s ultra-pretty PS3 exclusive RPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch until next year. The altered Q1 2013 release puts the title in line with its previously announced European date.

To prove that the game isn’t vapourware, Namco Bandai has released a trailer showcasing the game’s localisation progress. In it, protagonist Oliver speaks with an American accent, while everyone else is British. It's proof that you can’t sell a game without an American protagonist – well, unless said character is Lara Croft.
