$150!!!...Worth it?

So I'm not sure if anyone knows the details on this awesome jrpg created by Level 5 who's made such titles as the Professor Layton series for the DS, is working with Studio Ghibli who's every movie is near perfection like NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro ect. To make a game called Ni no Kuni: Shiroki Seihai no. With Professor Layton's art style in resemblance as some of Studio Ghibli's works i can see only good things to come. They already released a game in the same universe for the DS last year i don't really know if its made it to the U.S. if at all but i heard that it came with a book! How awesome is that most of the preorder stuff is pretty cheap in my opinion. like in Europe the special ed of Deus Ex: HR came with a Square Enix figure... the U.S. nothing like that. Who knows if the Ps3 game coming out on Nov. 17th in Japan will get anything on that level like is predecessor on the DS. One thing i do know  is that there will be a special ps3 edition console coming out on the release looking very nice in white and gold. But the kicker is that the price will be set at one hundred and fifty dollars! With the average going at sixty this is pricy but is it worth it? I mean Studio Ghibli's track record on style and amazing story i think the game will be forty hours of bliss, since with cinema they've been limited with two hours to emotionally invest you, think of that double decoupled! I think it is but i certainly don't want this price to be the norm unless games try and reach that level of quality, i know im talking in the future but i have hope for the gaming industry still.

Anyways heres the release trailer!


  1. They make great movies but not really sure about committing to that price tag. But maybe its just the cost of excellence.
