Though I'll probably pre-order at GameStop, I would've been more excited about the game if Namco offered more than five copies of the Wizard's Edition to the public.

The wizard edition seemed to be up for a while today. If they made more available then the people who did buy it would be pissed off when it turned out not to be limited. I guess you can't win.

Boo hoo for them if they don't like the idea of more people being able to get a CE that they want. They don't need to make a million of them, but it would be nice to have the option to get in on a small pre-order run at GameStop or Amazon than hope that Namco's table scraps on their site went up at a time that I could get in on it.

It was available for awhile this past fall...think today was just for cancelled orders and possibly a few more copies.

The Wizard edition did look pretty sweet, but I couldn't justify spending $100+tax+shipping on it. I don't think I've ever bought a game for $60 before, even.

Almost forgot this game was coming out next week. Rushed over and preordered my copy and got the Steel case. Cant wait to play it. Not since Vesperia have I completed a current gen console JRPG (not counting Xenoblade)

Maybe my wife will let me play this in front of my 2 year old.... maybe

Yeah, this was a collector's edition which really tempted me but I know what'll happen: The awesome baubles will forever sit on a shelf unused and further cluttering the room.

I want that book and I want that plushie but my tablet at my side will just have to suffice.

Found Ni No Kuni out on the shelf at Target today. I immediately tried to buy it, but sadly their system kicked out an error and refused to sell it since it wasn't release day yet. Sigh.

This happens every weekend prior to a release and the people over there keep letting me try to buy it. :roll:

Game looks great, ordered thru best buy, had $30 in rewards so I ended up getting it for $32 with free 2 day shipping.

I haven't 'completed' any jrpg since persona3portable nearly 2 yrs ago. I will dust off my ps3 for this puppy next week. I just hope I can endure all the sugary graphics (just watched Django and Last Stand...my mind is so tainted now).

My Current Lowball Sale is ACTIVE NOW.  Relieve my sorrows and bid if you can. Ends 8/4.

Anyone know when GS.com is shipping? I want to play this badly and get my Steelbook, only reason I ordered from GS.com.

Also have the guide coming from B&N.com because it was cheapest for me. Anyone know how fast B&N.com ships?

Will the DLC be region locked?

Will the griffy familiar(U.S only?) work on the PAL version of the game if I create a U.S PSN to redeem the code?

GS will decide if I'm getting it or not tomorrow. If they give me the steelbook with my preorder I will, if not I'll get my money back and pass.

It's not a need to play game for me, but it's a nice enough preorder bonus where I'll try the game and if it's as boring as the demo was I'll trade it away.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

I agree with this so much. People always bite my head off when I say I hate online retailer exclusive CE's/LE's, but this is the exact reason why. Especially when you have to deal with crappily designed stores and horrible shipping companies.

I think Persona 4 Golden did it perfectly, split their allocation between a few sites and stores, and still managed to stay up for a decent amount of time and sell all of the copies. (And it ended up being somewhat rare too)

I had forgotten about this game but got my shipping notice from Amazon yesterday - will be here tomorrow (Tues) according to them.

I might just bust this open and play it ASAP instead of adding it to the pile like I do with most games.

My personal experience with other games? Yes. Since the games have different "store fronts" the DLC purchased/redeemed in 1 store doesn't show up as purchased in the other store. Whichever game version you buy, you'll need to get the DLC from that region.

Yeah so did mine. Guide is still in Limbo from B&N.com. I really hope my guide comes in this week because it's being shipped to my GF's house since she ordered something on the order so we could get free shipping on it. Wont be able to visit till the weekend and it would suck not having it this week.

Instead of a shipping confirmation from Digital River - I just got a cancellation

The order was so old, my payment method has changed, and of course got declined. No chance to fix it, just an automated email saying it was cancelled.

I REALLY wish they could have charged at time of purchase.. Rather than wait 7 months and then try and charge the same Card. What a complete joke. Oh well, guess I'll buy it for $20 in a few months



Here's what they sent me:
--------------
"We’re sorry but your order for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition could not be processed. The credit card on file could not be authorized for payment. As a result, your order has been cancelled.

Unfortunately due to the limited nature of this product, it is no longer available for purchase.

Please note: This email message was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming email. Please do not reply to this message."

Got two emails from Amazon saying sorry for the delay, which is weird considering they've never sent emails before. Game and guide are shipping soon with delivery of today by 8PM. Can't tell if they're just trolling me or if it might actually be here today. . .

Anyone have an idea as about how long the game is? I've also been hearing the game is a little on the difficult side.

Yeah, I'd love to hear some impressions. I wasn't floored by the demo, but my love of Ghibli and Level-5 still has me wanting to pick this up.

installing now. have all day to play, pretty excited. in response to above comment. the only thing I've read that comes off as difficult is the reliance of using the defensive option ( which i never use in rpgs).

also 40-50 hours us the first few reports I've read. which probably means 60-70 hours for me (i like to take my time in pretty and detailed games)
