So excited!!! Just found out that the famed animation company Studio Ghibli (peeps behind Hayao Miyazaki's animation films Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro etc.) have united with the gaming world collaborating with Fukoka game developer Level-5 to produce the 'Studio Ghibli' 2D animation game titled Ni No Kuni. Ni No Kuni will first be released on PS3 then Nintendo DS shortly after. This is very exciting news for lovers of Studio Ghibli animation and gaming! Just looking at the screenshots, the main character shares resemblance to other Level-5 game characters from the Professor Layton series.
Love the little yellow bean looking guy- So Ghibli! Check out the game trailer below!

I decided to celebrate the news by finally cracking open my Studio Ghibli cookies I got from the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. hmmm it got me thinking....can food become a collectors item?
Love the detail in the packaging!
How cool is the big Studio Ghibli crest and Spirited Away Soot-Sprite cookies?

On a Studio Ghibli food note. Look at this amazing Bento Totoro made by Anna The Red!

Hi George,

Glad to hear you liked the Ninokuni pics and my blog. Thank you so much for taking the time out to comment too. Yes hope the release date isn't too far off. I might have to wait longer to get it here in Australia though :(
