    It's such an incredible game but I never saw anyone talking about it here.
    Have you guys played or are playing it? What do you think about the game?
    Did you play with japanese or english audio?
    Have you guys nicknamed any of your monsters?If yes, what nickame was it?
    What's your strongest familiar?
    What was the most remarkable thing you guys think that happened in the game?

    For me, this is the best game of PS3. I was astounished about how incredible the game is,
    it almost seens as we're playing an animated film of ghibli studios.
    The story is great, the way it merges gameplay with cutscenes is fantastic,
    the way it mix tons of stuff that are in already legendary RPGs and yet it works perfectly and feel just as original.

    Actually, there is one thing that makes me sad, my brother accidentaly formatted my PS3,
    I dunno how and neither does he, all my progress in more than 5 years playing is gone, including on Ni No Kuni.
    I had a Toko double planet, what are the odds of this?

    I had catrastoceros, which is the familiar with the biggest attack, it was really incredible,
    killing Ulks was a simple task to it. I also had a bone baron, which is also one of the strongest familiars,
    I nicknamed it James Bone.

    The plot-twists in the game were really surprising for me

    The battle system is atrocious, playing multiple characters is a nightmare.
    The story repetetive.
    The twists are predictable.

    The Art and the music are beautiful, ill give you that.

    I agree that the art and music are really great. I didn't think the battle system was *that* bad though. I didn't like trying to capture familiars though... it was just totally random and really time consuming which made it annoying.

    I was actually surprised by the plot twists. The first half of the game was a bit slow in my opinion but around Hamelin is when it started picking up. Overall, I think it was a nice game to just sit down and escape to another world. ;)

    Finished it and loved it.
    However it won't reach to what Eternal Sonata did to me.
    Even then, NNK was a really really good game.
    Good 80 hours of me life spend on it.

    Can't say anything about the story, but I can agree to all the other things.

    It sounded like a dream coming true: Ghibli and Level 5 design an game. But good art design can't overact poor mechanics.

    i got it when i got m ps3 i was really really excited for it

    but when i played it i was really disapointed the gameplay bored the hell out of me, the story was meh and the artstyle atleat for me didnt do much for me

    i aint hating on jrpgs or anything (folklore was a awesome game and so was kingdom hearts 1.5 remix) but it just felt bland for me not horrible but just bland and didnt do much for me

    I've been playing it off and on, probably have around seven or eight hours clocked. I love it, and as a huge Studio Ghibli AND Level-5 fan, this is just a big treat basket for me. It's been awhile since I picked up any new J-RPG's, I'm glad I didn't miss out on this one.

    I came to act 2 boss (sand) and beat him.

    Then my game crashes after 3-5 enemy battles and reset before I killed the boss.
    Now Ive to grind alot of time to beat the boss again, i think i died against him like 20 times lol

    Phenomenal game. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I actually got really absorbed by the story. The combat was excellent and I actually found it challenging at times, even with Mr. Drippy's helping words. Once you got all out attack, all out defines.. it did become easier.

    Also I farmed pretty heavily. I really doubt anyone that doesn't grind a crap load can find this game as easy as some people like to make out.

    The side missions were really crap though. would have rather they put a bit more effort into a few more enticing and interesting stories. The overall story was excellent though with some really memorable moments and fights.
