Publisher Namco-Bandai has announced a special edition for Level-5/Studio Ghibli RPG collaboration Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and it is an absolute cracker.

The lavish ‘Wizard’s Edition’ comes in a large presentation box, and contains a 300-page hardback copy of The Wizard’s Companion (the same spellbook used by protagonist Oliver in-game), a plush toy version of Oliver’s droop-nosed familiar, Drippy, as well as two DLC familiars; Golden Mite and Golden Drongo. Those that pre-order the set from participating retailers will receive two more familiars exclusive to the Western release – Flutterby and Griffy. You can see an image of the Wizard’s Edition below.

I’m loving Namco at the moment; first the lovely Tales of Graces f Day One Edition, and now this. I’m a sucker for a special edition, especially if it contains a nice book, so I’m all over this one!

There’s no news yet as to which retailers will be offering this set, nor are there any pricing details, but I’ll certainly be keeping my eyes open. Who else is interested?
