Ni no Kuni Due out in Europe in Q1 2013

In perhaps typical Level-5/Namco Bandai fashion, Europe will be getting Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch much later than their North American counterparts.

While Europeans will have to wait, the good news is the game will sport English as well as Japanese audio. Subtitles will be available in French, German, Spanish and Italian.

"We have worked very hard on Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and it has been a great honour to collaborate with Studio Ghibli and [composer] Joe Hisaishi, so it was important for me that players outside Japan also have the best experience of the game we can give them," said Level-5 boss Akihiro Hino.

"To make this possible, we decided to invest the time in localising the game so that as many people as possible across Europe can enjoy the full experience in their own language."

Details have yet to be shared for an American date outside of "Spring 2012," so hopefully we'll hear more on that soon. Should that release come much sooner, at least Europeans can rest easy knowing they can import since the PS3 is in fact region free.
