Why Games Need Studio Ghibli | NowThis Nerd



Ni No Kuni II is heavily inspired by the work of Studio Ghibli, and Andrew Rivera thinks modern video games need more of that magic.

Studio Ghibli is one of the most influential studios in the history of animated cinema. Studio Ghibli movies and Studio Ghibli anime are some of the most gorgeous examples of the potential of animation, and films like Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Nausicaa Valley of the Wind, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, and more have become the stuff of legend.

But founder Hayao Miyazaki has a blind spot when it comes to video games, which is why there was never any proper Studio Ghibli Games before Ni No Kuni. Ni No Kuni and Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom. From the gorgeous Studio Ghibli music by Joe Hisaishi to the trippy visuals, the style, substance and heart of Studio Ghibli can make nearly any videogame better, as NiNoKuni proves, and now that the Japanese gaming scene is in full resurgence, there’s never been a better time to lend that Ghibli magic to the world of games.

  • sega definitely needs help from ghibli since their recent games (aside from sonic generations and sonic mania) are very crappy

  • Great thesis, the “toxic masculinity” seemed a bit biased and out of place.

  • Howl's Moving Castle. Man if I could play a game where I felt like I was a wizard like Howl, that would be perfect. Also Spirited Away of course, the Dragon/River Spirit is too perfectly designed. I was sad when none of the creature designs for familiars in Ni No Kuni were similar to that. Where definitely need more Studio Ghibli games.

  • Thank you SO MUCH for this. I want to get a Studio Ghibli inspired game, but I had no idea what was out there. The background was the most helpful part.

  • Laputa castle in the sky was my first ghibli Miyazaki film I watched it as a kid. I had faint memory’s of it as an adult. I only could remember a magic ring making this girl and boy fly, I had no idea who did the film, but that memory of this ring making someone fly was in the back of my mind. Then my cousin introduced me to princess Mononoki which sparked off a memory, I recognised the art work and style, then jumped for joy and found out who did the film I could remember as a kid. The film was laputa castle in the sky and the ring was actually a stone from laputa. The film was shown on bbc 4 as a child i am now 37 so guess that was along time ago memories are amazing and it shows how unique ghiblis art work is, as I could recognise it just from faint memory’s and on a very modern release from ghibli compared to how old laputa castle in the sky is.
