English trailer for Ni no Kuni is sounding sharp

Apr 13 // Bob Muir

JRPGs don't always get the best dubs when brought outside of Japan. Sure, there's probably nothing that would have made me like FFXIII's Vanille, but giving her a horrible Australian accent mixed with pure stupidity certainly made things worse. That's why it's awesome to watch this English trailer for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and be reminded of Disney's dub jobs on Studio Ghibli's films. And if you don't like it, the Japanese dub is still included!

However, now I'm realizing that the PS3 game isn't releasing in America or Europe until early 2013. What is this, the 90s? I'm not used to waiting this long for my massive RPGs with tons of dialogue to cross the pond! Let's get a move on, Bandai Namco!
