    Level 5 (Professor Layton, Dragon Quest VIII) announced a new DS game being made with the legendary animation studio Ghibli (My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away) called "Ninokuni - The Another World". The game's release is scheduled for next year in Japan.

    details:
    - The animation in the game is all by Studio Ghibli.
    - Level-5 's first 10th Anniversary product.
    - There will be a book bundled with the game filled with information on various magic crests and spell recipes. This 'Magic Master' book is something that the main character in the game has, and the player will need to refer to from time to time while playing the game.
    - There will be a console version of the game, but the hardware is not decided yet.
    - They want the console version to offer something different for people that have already played the DS version, the selection of the hardware will be based on which is most suitable for this purpose.
    - The exact same book will be packaged with the console version as well.

    Looks nice. Could someone try to translate the important parts?

    I guess they will either settle for the Wii because of motion controls and because more people have it or for the 360/PS3 because of graphics. Maybe we will get one of the best looking 3d anime rpgs ever made ? [​IMG]
