Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered
Top Critic Average
An exceptionally pretty if otherwise conventional JRPG with diverting combat. Not an all-timer, but worth a (re)visit.
One of the best Japanese role-players of the generation and a gloriously beautiful game by any standard, both visually and emotionally.
Thanks to one of Bandai Namco’s best localization efforts and the fantastic work of both Level-5 and Studio Ghibli, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is still a joy to experience almost a decade after it was originally released.
6 years after its original release, Ni No Kuni Remastered is still a beautiful J-RPG with great music and a moving story, that looks incredible in 4K resolution.

Whilst Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a port and not a remaster, it still looks amazing on Switch, and if you've got the time, it's a fantastic RPG well worth your time.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered doesn't reinvent the original, but that wasn't really needed anyway. What you get here is a visually enhanced port of what was already an amazing JRPG full of charm, wit, and character.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered makes sufficient improvements to the visuals, bringing the same incredible JRPG to PC and PS4 without leaving any detail behind.
If you’re at all intrigued by Ni No Kuni, I’d strongly advise you to just go and play Revenant Kingdom instead. It’s a far more enjoyable JRPG than Wrath of the White Witch, and it won’t make you feel like snapping your keyboard in two out of a white-hot fury of your own
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch gets a port for the Switch and a Remaster for PC and PS4 and now is the perfect time to revisit the classic.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a solid, no-frills, no-additions port of the original PS3 game of the same title. The first video game by Studio Ghibli has not only aged very well, but it also runs smoothly and quickly on the Switch, making it an ideal way to experience the whimsy, charm, and wonder of this fantastical world with Oliver, his friends, and his fearsome foes.
