NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. is giving JRPG fans the opportunity to add additional bonus items to the recently announced Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition through a program called Ninostarter. Ninostarter is an exclusive North American crowd sourcing initiative where NAMCO BANDAI Games America will harness the enthusiasm of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch fans to unlock additional items that will be included in the North American Wizard’s Edition when the game ships on January 22, 2013.

Ninostarter works by tracking the number of Wizard’s Edition preorders being placed exclusively on; as the Wizard’s Edition preorder numbers rise, additional Wizard’s Edition items will be unlocked when pre-established levels of preorders are reached. Fans will have to act fast to unlock additional items in the Wizard’s Edition as will stop taking preorders for the Wizard’s Edition on August 31, 2012 in North America.
