The game will be available as a port or a remastered port, depending on the platform.

Bandai Namco announced today that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will be released on Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC on September 20, 2019. The game was originally released on PlayStation 3 in 2013, where it earned a following sufficient to justify a sequel, 2018's Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.

Developed by Level-5, the studio responsible for the Dark Cloud series and for Dragon Quest VIII, among other hits, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch featured storyboard animations from the renowned Studio Ghibli.

On Nintendo Switch, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will feature 720P resolution and run at 30 fps (frames per second) whether running in TV mode or in handheld mode. The remastered version for PlayStation 4 runs at 60 fps, or PlayStation 4 Pro owners can play at 4K resolution at 30 fps... or at 1440p at 60 fps. PC users will no doubt have options depending on how powerful a GPU they have at their disposal.

The game introduces players to Oliver, a boy who journeys through another world in an attempt to revive his mother. Accompanied by an unusual pal named Drippy, he'll tame wild creatures and battle against fearsome opponents while drawing ever closer to his goal.

"For those who missed this amazing adventure, or those who would like to feel the magic again, these two Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch releases represent the perfect opportunity to get lost in a world of wonder, danger, love, and friendship," said Randy Le, Bandai Namco's brand manager in North America. "A beautiful and compelling tale told by expert storytellers with a heartbreaking score, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch stands alongside the best games of the last generation. We're excited to let gamers rediscover this rich world on modern systems."
