Studio Ghibli Creating DS Game


Posted April 27, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Kiki's Delivery ServiceAccording to a Japanese gaming magazine, Studio Ghibli, the people behind Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Monoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo and other absolutely genius Hayao Miyazaki movies, is making its first video game. Ni no Kuni is a Nintendo DS game being created with Fukuoka-based developer Level-5.

The game concerns Oliver, a kid who recently lost his mother. He enters a parallel universe called "Ni no kuni" with a small, "lantern-nosed fairy named Shizuku."

The game seems slated for a Japan-only release, but I can only hope a letter-writing campaighn and a million sincere dreams bring it to the United States.

I'm not sentimental about many things, and I'm not exactly a Japan-o-phile, but I I make an exception for Miyazaki movies. If you're not familiar with these films, I envy you, because you'll have the experience of seeing them for the first time. Seriously, go get them, or, better yet, wait for a revival showing at a theater near you. You'll thank me.
