Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will miss its planned January 25 release date as a result of "logistics delays", Namco Bandai has announced.

"Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has a new release date for Europe and Australasia," Tweeted the publisher.

"Due to logistics delays Ni no Kuni will launch 1st February 2013 with a free gift to download."

The firm added: "It was a difficult decision to take as our options were limited, we are sorry for the delay."

The free downloadable gift is an "adorable Draggle familiar" which will be available to download at launch.
