The RPG follows the young Oliver, from Hotriot after the death of his mother Arie. A magical doll, given as a present, shows in a spellbook that lets Oliver travel to the parallel dimension of Ninokuni. Oliver’s told that via Ninokuni he could revive is mother.
Watch the video. It has Pokemon elements to it – creatures fighting battles for the children. However, perhaps it’s better to compare the game to Blue Dragon (which I really liked) as that also found a creative way to allow the young cast to battle and led to some interesting plot turns.
I’m not so sure about the lantern carrying nose-creature though — unless light becomes important in the game. That could be fun.
What do you think?
