Studio Ghibli, the animation studio behind classic anime like My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service, is making a Nintendo DS game title Ni no Kuni with Fukuoka-based developer Level-5. It is Studio Ghibli's first venture into video games.

The game follows Oliver, whose mothers passes away and who enters a parallel universe called "Ni no kuni" with a small, lantern-nosed fairy named Shizuku. Here's a batch of recent magazine scans of the game. Looks swell!
