    Level-5 Showcases Ninokuni Footage on the PlayStation 3

    According to our very own Michael Baker, Ninokuni is super awesome fun times. Too bad it hasn't been announced for North America yet. Instead, here's some footage of the PlayStation 3 game currently in development. It sure is purdy.

    Story.

    *grumbles that he doesn't have a PS3*

    It looks very good. The only thing that looks remotely weird is that the expressions of NPCs seem a little stiff.

    This is like a new standard for cel-shading. It puts Eternal Sonata, Tales of Vesperia, and Valkyria Chronicles to shame, and that's no easy feat.

    I don't want to get my hopes up about it coming over though, because Level-5 is notoriously unreliable when it comes to localizations... sigh

    Wow, absolutely beautiful! I wish I knew Japanese.. Because I hear this is highly unlikely to be coming out state side. *crosses fingers anyways*

    I'd say this is pretty much a lock for US localization. Level 5's US office must be working on something other than White Knight Chronicles 2, and this seems the most likely game. I think there's a small chance the DS version won't get localized, but I'd be shocked if the PS3 version isn't.

    I would be sad if the DS version never came over here.. But if we ended up getting the PS3 version instead that would be more than amazing..

    Very pretty but my brain can't reconcile seeing Ghibli style animation running that fluidly.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Yeah, after seeing so many Ghibli movies, the framerate just looks wrong...

    ...minna ga asoberu (everyone can enjoy it) - heh, typical developer.

    (3:38) Atarashii sakuhin. Ima made tsukutta koto nai sakuhin o tsukutteiru kuro tte imasu ne...
    It is a new work. Nothing like it has been made before! - heh, typical developer.

    I refuse to see any more images or trailers of these games until it gets announced here. It's way too depressing. ;_;
