Despite its shortcomings, Ni No Kuni is one of my favorite games of this year, bar none. In fact, depending on how I feel at the end of December, it may even be my outright Game of the Year, amidst everything I've played in 2013 -- I just couldn't stop until I 100%ed it.
Another fan (Sam Joseph Delves) seems to feel the same passion, and he's taken it upon himself to recreate the entire game's soundtrack to honor composer Joe Hisaishi. So far Sam hasn't had a chance to directly speak to Hisaishi, but his efforts are astoundingly impressive, and I hope he gets his wish sooner than later.
