Ni no Kuni's Ghibli-ness turned Level-5 into a Top Runner

8:00 AM on 01.31.2011 // Josh Tolentino

If you didn't get any of what I just wrote in the title, I'll spend a few more letters in explaining. There's this show in Japan, Top Runner, which interviews hot personalities. The personality on stage is Akhiro Hino, CEO of developer Level-5 (aka the Professor Layton people), showing off Ni no Kuni, the DS and PlayStation 3 RPGs made with the aid of Studio Ghibli (aka the Ghibli movie people).

Apparently Ni no Kuni made Hino the first game designer on Top Runner in some thirteen-odd years. Nice one, Level-5!

In the meantime, check out some of that sweet footage covering the PS3 version, in which players can enter first-person perspective to admire the sheer Ghibli-ness of the game's visuals. That's a pretty DO WANT kind of feature, given that you'll be walking around a Ghibli-designed world.

Are you in for this?
