Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (Japanese: Ni no Kuni: Shiroki Seihai no Joou, literally "Second Country: The Queen of White Sacred Ash.") is a role-playing game developed and published by Level-5 in collaboration with world-famous animation company Studio Ghibli. The game puts the player in the role of Oliver, a 13 year old boy who, after his mother's death, is transported to a parallel world, and goes on a quest to bring her back to life.
The game is an enhanced port of Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's first collaboration, Ni no Kuni: Shikoku no Madoshi for the Nintendo DS.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a role-playing game. Players take control of the protagonist, Oliver, to explore the world. Oliver can move around towns and cities, interacting with different characters. Players explore the game's large world on an over-world map, similar to those found in older RPGs.
Enemies wander around the world, and battles are initiated when the player comes into contact with them. Combat is played out in real-time, with a meter that must fill for the player to perform an action (similar to the active-time battle system of Final Fantasy). Central to the combat are "imagine" avatars, which the player can summon in combat to assist them.
