These Ni no Kuni commercials are a big tease

I hope you haven’t forgotten about Ni no Kuni, the magical Level-5 RPG with animation handled by Studio Ghibli that has Colette all wet. If so, here’s your reminder that the game will hit Japanese shelves this December and that we foolish gaijin still don’t have a release date. Don’t play like that, dudes!

The two commercials above don’t show any gameplay footage, only torturous carrot-dangling. The first one says, “This winter’s ultimate fantasy, from a dream staff,” as pencil animations become awash in an ocean of colors. The second one talks about the game’s pre-order magic book that we are never going to see over here. Uggggggggh!

Remember, these ads are only for the DS version. The PS3 version won’t arrive until some time next year. Can you control your emissions?
