At long last, after eagerly waiting for more than a year, at the end of January we’ll be able to play Ni No Kuni, and Namco Bandai came up with a new video series for us to enjoy in the meanwhile.
Today they published the first video of the series, that brings us to the Tokyo offices of Level 5, where CEO Akihiro Hino and game director Ken Motomura walk us around and show us how the team works. We even catch a glimpse of the developer’s motion capture studio.
Hino-san also talks about the studio’s design philosophy and about the origin of its name. Looks like it comes from “Five stars” as his idea was to bring forth high quality games like a five star restaurant does with food.
