Come to Ni no Kuni on your PlayStation3, or go on a voyage to fight pirates in Gigant Battles 2, and lead a hundred ogres in Nurarihyon no Mago to the combat grounds.

From the publisher: Produced by Studio Ghibli with music composed by Joe Hisaishi, Ninokuni is a magical land, and PlayStation3 is the new portal to the world.

The orphan Oliver is determined to revive his mother. In order to do so, he follows Shizuku, the fairy of the tears into the world of Ninokuni. The fairy gives him a book of spells and off he goes on his journey to defeat the evil magician Jabo.

Things however are not quite so simple, the night before Oliver's mother died, a mysterious girl appeared before him to warn him of the impending disaster. And throughout Oliver's journeys, a masked queen watches everything from the darkness.

Form the strongest team to defeat the Hagoromo Kitsune. That powerful fox spirit has been devouring people and usurping power since the Heian era, and Rikuo, the leader of Hakki Yayou (the march of a hundred ogres) is the one to defeat her.

Know the powers of your underlings and whip them out during the battle. Shatter, and collect stone fragments to call out the powerful ogres. The girls Yukionna and Yura are your supports, they will lend you a hand when the situation becomes dire and these two will never fail to watch your back.

Being thrust into the position of the head of the group needs some getting used to. Train your character and learn to execute skills in the training mode. And when you become so powerful that you can overwhelm the fox spirit, log online to fight champion teams from across the network.

Lead your march of a hundred ogres on:
