That Studio Ghibli Game Is Finally Coming to the PS3 (But It's Expensive!)S

About a thousand years ago, Fukuoka-based game developer revealed it was working on a PlayStation 3 version of Ni no Kuni, its collaboration with venerated anime house Studio Ghibli.

That PS3 version will finally be out on the PS3 on November 17, according to the latest issue of Famitsu. It will cost ¥8,800, which is US$115 in American money. But before you think that's crazy expensive, remember, Disney Dollars are not only worth more than American money, they have pictures of Mickey Mouse on them.

Even for Japan, though, ¥8,800 is pricey—it's the high end of the spectrum. Or as I like to say, the overpriced end. And boy oh boy, do I ever say that. Like all the freaking time.

Ni no Kuni was first revealed in 2008, and the DS version, Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madoshi, was released in December 2010.
