Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is coming out on January 22, 2013 for the PlayStation 3. For those of you who are somehow still on the fence about picking this one up, Namco has revealed the pre-order bonuses from GameStop and Amazon.
If you pre-order from GameStop (US or Canadian stores), you’ll be given an exclusive SteelBook case with alternate artwork. That’s neat, I guess, but doesn’t compare to the Amazon pre-order where you’ll get the exclusive Griffy familiar, seen in the image above.
This creature wasn’t actually in the original Japanese version of the game, so it really is an exclusive here. Griffy can spot enemies that are far away, and has attacks like “Phantom Fangs” and “Petrifying Puff.” Griffy can also evolve into stronger forms, called Griffurance, and The Griffrigerator.
Griffrigerator? Really? I’m imagining a refrigerator with a hawk head on top of it with a name like that.
