Weekly Game Music: Main Theme (Ni No Kuni: The Wrath of The White Witch)

New week, new music.  I’ve never expected to post any Joe Hisashi’s music — an infamous Japanese movie composer — yet here we are.  Level-5’s collaboration with the legendary animators, Studio Ghibli, is nothing short of amazing. Ni No Kuni: The Wrath of The White Witch’s Main Theme is one epic music to be remembered for ages.

Ni No Kuni begins immediately with a tragedy: 13-year-old Oliver’s mother dies while rescuing her son.  Oliver’s never-ending tears gives him a second chance, however.  His treasured doll suddenly comes to life, and reveals that Oliver could revive his mother by traveling into a magical world, the Ni No Kuni.  Oliver immediately accepts, and the duo goes treading through the new parallel universe.

Ni No Kuni is a JRPG that’s a bit like Pokemon.  Oliver and his party members can collect a few monsters to aid them in battle.  Each real-time battle takes placed in a flat arena (a lot like the Tales series), where the player can control one party member or monster, while the others are computer controlled.  Up to 3 party members and 3 monsters can be used in each battle, accounting for some hectic action.

Ni No Kuni: The Wrath of The White Witch was released on the PS3 in 2013.
