Level-5’s Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch certainly ranks as one of the best RPGs on Switch right now, and combines an uplifting story with gorgeous artwork courtesy of the legendary Japanese animation company Studio Ghibli.
The game is currently on sale, with a massive 84 percent reduction on its typical retail price. You can pick up this classic title for just £7.99, as opposed to the usual £49.99. This discount only seems to be active in Europe at present, with the game still retailing for the full $49.99 in North America.
We really liked the game when it launched on Switch in 2019, saying that: “Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is an experience unlike any other on the Switch, expertly blending standard RPG tropes with a heartwarming story, innovative art style, and an immersive soundtrack composed by some of the best in the business.”
The game’s origins go back to 2008, when the series was formally announced via Ni no Kuni: The Another World on the DS. This Japan-only title would eventually be released as Ni No Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn in 2010, with Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch hitting the PlayStation 3 a year later.
Speaking of Japan exclusives, you might want to savour this particular title while it’s on sale, as Level-5 – most famous for its best-selling Layton series – appears to be turning its back on the west.
