UPDATE: Namco Bandai has issued its own announcement that it is bringing Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch to Europe.

It launches in 2012 exclusively on PlayStation 3. No mention is made of the Nintendo DS version.

ORIGINAL STORY: Lovely-looking Level 5 / Studio Ghibli Nintendo DS and PlayStation 3 role-playing game Ni No Kuni is heading west.

Enslaved publisher Namco Bandai has signed the game for distribution in Europe and the US, Level 5 announced.

As a trademark filing hinted at earlier this month, Ni No Kuni in the West is called Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. It's due out at some point in 2012.

Ni No Kuni refers to a magical world into which the hero, a 13-year-old boy called Oliver, can travel, using a magical book given to him by a fairy disguised as a doll.
