Level-5's JRPG Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will be released across Europe by Namco Bandai in 2012, exclusively for PlayStation 3.

The RPG is developed by Level-5 (Professor Layton) in collaboration with the legendary Studio Ghibli (My Neighbour Totoro, Castle in the Sky and Spirited Away). In addition, the in-game music comes from Joe Hisaishi, the composer of the scores to over 100 films including many of Studio Ghibli's greatest films.

"It was a momentous experience to create a game with artists who represent Japan as much as Studio Ghibli and Mr. Hisaishi do," said Akihiro Hino, president and CEO of Level-5 Inc. "We sincerely want to share this title with the entire world."

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a tale of a young boy called Oliver, who embarks on a journey into a parallel world to become a magician in an attempt to bring back his recently-deceased mother.

I think Namco Bandai get pretty major brownie points for this.

While this isn't my usual bag (random battles and not-what). The Studio Ghibli connection is enough for me to be interesting in getting it, even if it's purely for the stunning visuals and story-telling.
