Here are all the Studio Ghibli-animated scenes from the Factor 5 videogame Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. At least, that's what the author of this YouTube video promises. It's a good opportunity to watch the anime clips without having to spend weeks playing an RPG. Okay, you should probably play the game, too, it looks really good.
Ni no Kuni suggests a possible future for Studio Ghibli - quicker, shorter and less expensive projects in other mediums. The studio is built to handle Hayao Miyazaki films, which are enormously expensive to create, but are guaranteed to be monstrously successful in Japan and earn another $20 million overseas. Those days are now over. And that means the studio, in one fashion or another, will have to downsize, and more aggressively pursue smaller projects. Working with video game developers is one possible option.
If you haven't seen Ni no Kuni and you're curious to see what Studio Ghibli created, here's your chance. Enjoy!
