Namco Running Kickstarter-Like Promo For Ni No Kuni

You know what Kickstarter is, right? It's basically like a PBS pledge drive where developers who need some extra cash to develop a game reach out to the community for funds.

It has worked quite well over the past year, but did you know there's another way to implement that philosophy...?

Welcome to Ninostarter. Now, there's going to be a special Wizard's Edition of the upcoming RPG, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and it'll boast a translated "Wizard's Companion" spellbook, a plush Drippy doll, and exclusive golden drongo and golden mite DLC familiars. But more can be added...provided more people pre-order this nifty collector's edition.

The way it works is simple: Namco Bandai will add more goodies to the Wizard's Edition based on the number of gamers who pre-order it from the Namco store. Each goal hit will result in a new item! This ends on August 31 so make sure to pre-order before then.

Cool idea but I think I'll be square with the regular edition, plus I always pre-order from Amazon. The game looks like a lot of old style fun.

Bah! If only they announced this earlier. I already preordered the Standard in a massive pre order bundle at Newegg.

Blah! America only (the Ninostarter)... Europe has been again forgotten...
If it wasn´t for Europe you would still be dancing around fires and living in teepees, however the gaming industry is all about Japan and North America. Nobody invests in Europe because they feel "forced" to localize games... Just release them in English only like you do in NA, every game in Europe understands enough English to play games.

You know, Im not much on anime stuff like this. In fact, I will be honest here, it looks a little sissified. Im going to play the manly game known as COD!

I KID! I KID! The game looks fantastic and I cannot wait to play it! I will have to check this out.
