Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is what you get when you marry the development talent at Level-5 with the artistic nature of Studio Ghibli. From trailers to cutscenes to screenshots, Ni no Kuni looks like a Hayao Miyazaki anime.

This JRPG has already landed in Japan. There, it’s garnered strong critical praise and decent commercial success. Ni no Kuni will hit North American PlayStation 3s on January 22nd, 2013.

Tomorrow, gamers looking forward to the release will be able to check out the game’s demo by downloading it from the PlayStation Store.

Of course, the PlayStation Store doesn’t always update at the same exact time each week. Sony tends to perform the switch to new content sometime in the afternoon on the East Coast, so don’t expect the Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch demo to appear until you get home from work or school.
