Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered has been leaked. The game was supposed to be shown off by Bandai Namco at E3 but leaked beforehand.
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was developed by Level 5 with animated sequences produced by Studio Ghibli. The game is being published by Bandai Namco, which explains the leaks.
Released in the West for the PS3 in 2013, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was praised by critics for its visual direction and story.
Details are sparse right now, however according to the leak the base game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch while the Remaster releases for the Xbox One and PS4. Both releases are scheduled for Fall 2019. The Remaster only appears to be an upscale so maybe that’s the Switch version doesn’t have the label since the Nintendo console probably isn’t able to hit the high resolutions that the Xbox One and PS4 can.
Below is the game overview:
