09/16/2010 Ninokuni: Shikkoku no Madoushi Hands-On

We learn how Oliver gets in the world Ninokuni.

Last year we were able to play demo of Ninokuni: Shikkoku no Madoushi and mess around with the properties of the magic book that plays an important role in the game. At the time we didn't have much of an idea of what the game was about and what we were doing in this magnificent forest. This year at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show, we were able see the game from the beginning and find out how the young boy Oliver winds up in Ninokuni. While the PlayStation 3 demo was more action oriented, we did get to see some of the differences between the two versions. We're pleased to see that the collaboration between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli is coming along nicely.

We were limited to 15 minutes and most of that time was spent watching nicely animated cutscenes. This was likely the beginning of the game, where we see Oliver run to a nearby convenience store to pick up some items for his mother. Through the animation and expressions of the characters, it was fairly easy to understand what was going on. We were able to control Oliver using the stylus or the D pad. With the stylus, you draw a line on the touch screen and hold it in the direction you want him to go. An arrow on the map in the top screen will let you know where you should be heading.

After heading home, we sat down to eat a sandwich that our mothers have been prepared. If you 're worried about story spoilers, then you can stop reading now and read the PS3 hands-on

His mom must have some kind of sixth sense, as she wakes up from a dream of her son falling into oblivion and runs to his room to check on him. When she sees that he's missing, she takes off and eventually finds him struggling in the water. She jumps in and saves him, but unfortunately after he's safe and sound, she suddenly keels over and dies from a heart attack.

To date, our 15 minutes were up, so we opened up from the demo area, but through all the demos we've seen, we are able to piece together the story and gameplay. This can be awihle before we can see it all in English, but Ninokuni: Shikkoku Madoushi not going to be released in Japan on December 9.
