LEVEL-5′s latest JRPG creation Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is already getting an impressive collector’s edition. On top of that, Namco Bandai is also doing a special promotion by using pre-order goals to add even more content to it. Now the company wants to give the regular edition of the game some love, by revealing what you can get by pre-ordering it at certain retailers.
First off is GameStop (both US and Canadian stores), if you pre-order with them you will receive an exclusive steel book case adorned with alternate cover artwork. A picture of it can be seen above. If you want something you can actually use in the game, though, then Amazon is your best bet.
Pre-ordering from Amazon will get you an exclusive “familiar” or monster called Griffy, a little griffin that can aid you in battle. He is a brand new addition to the game and was not included with the original Japanese release of Ni no Kuni.
He can be a very useful ally as he spots enemies from long distances and has powerful special attacks. Griffy can even evolve into stronger forms and become even more effective. A tough choice to make as the steel case looks pretty nice and is nothing to scoff at. Either way you still have time to decide as the game will launch on the PlayStation 3 on January 22, 2013.
