When the end credits started playing I got really excited, because there were vocals to it.

While we play the game we hear this song many times, in a couple different forms, so you get pretty accustomed to it by the time you finally hear this version with lyrics, but it still took me by surprise.

There's this beautiful score we've heard countless times, suddenly made even more amazing by these lyrics that are tailored to the story so well, that just makes it a very moving piece.

Over hills green as the springtime,
Chasing a lonely cloud, white as snow
Some day soon, I mean to catch it,
Hold tight, and up into the sky I'll go

I think of what you told me
However sad life seems
That sometimes tears
Can turn to dreams

If I could only be with you once more,
And hold you tightly to my heart
We could walk this road together,
And never, ever be apart
Each and every heart will be healed,
On our journey through another world

Down the years, over the ages,
Bonds from a secret past reach through
Life is grasped, one soul is chosen,
Once again a child is born anew

Deep in the heart of darkness
Where cold despair is found
The call of hope, may yet resound

I close my eyes, and you are here,
Your smiling face shines down on me
I am alone, but never lonely,
You're by my side, and I can clearly see
That though the road into tomorrow is long,
My mind is clear, my heart is strong

If I could only be with you once more,
And hold you tightly to my heart
We could walk this road together,
And never, ever be apart
Your light will shine on every forest and field,
On our journey through another world.

This game was beautiful inside and out. I am sad that it took me so long to finish, but it was totally worth it. Definitely a game I will recommend to everyone.

How did you guys like Ni No Kuni?

I really liked the flow of the game, nothing seemed to drag on for me, even when I would go and do all the side missions as I unlocked them. I never had to grind for any levels or anything like that so the pacing seemed great. Let me really explore the game at my own pace without feeling bogged down or pressured by it.

I think right now one of my biggest regrets is that I didn't get the wizard edition, I really would love to have a wizard's companion to take on my adventures!
