    I'd give my right leg for a similar treatment of Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

    Chances are it will never happen. Miyazaki hates games. Part of why he likes the arrangement he has with disney is because he retains the rights to everything so there would be and i quote' No princess mononke video game' Besides Ni No Kuni does a brilliant job of recreating their movies without being any single one of them. Like when you transfer an emotiomn to the locket its the same animationas when howl recieves Calcifer into his heart. and Hamlin and the surrounding area is basically the mountain after the humans have started mining it in mononoke. Either way its a bloody masterpiece. One game i'd love to see a movie version of.

    This article, especially remembering Howl's Moving Castle, has got me in the mood to play Valkyria Chronicles again.

    If they were to make a game based on Spirited Away I can see it being a cross between WarioWare and Recettear. It wouldn't follow the story of the film, but use the idea of your character wanting to return to the real world. In order to do so you make a deal with the owner of the bathhouse: If you earn enough money in the a set time period you'll be set free. The gameplay would have you tending to customers or doing chores through various WarioWare-esque minigames, which earn you money based on how well you do. You can then spend this money to improve and create more facilities at the bathhouse which open up new minigames, but always making sure you keep enough to pay off the bathhouse owner.

    Wow... I've seen all of these except Sherlock Hound. I guess it didn't come with the collection I bought. :( I dunno, I'd LOVE to see more Studio Ghibli minimalism in video games more often, but a STRAIGHT translation? Iunno. Licensed games never work too well--but fans can dream, can't they? Also, that Ni no Kuni demo blew me away. I feel in love with the Pokemon-meets-Tales combat system, as well as the characters, world, and voice overs. I have a feeling it's going to be an absolute knockout.

    Great list. I agree with Bladedfalcon, they should work more on new IP's to be just as great experience. I got one, Spirited Away, and the gameplay should be like.....Animal Crossing with the occassional mystical moments!

    Considering the track record of anime/anime films being translated into a game... I'd rather just see studio Ghibli collaborate with either Level 5 again, or someone else in making another original IP just like Ni No Kuni.

    Could you imagine a Kingdom Hearts like game with these animations as the content? Weirdest yet most amazing thing ever I would predict.

    I can't believe Nausicaa wasn't ever a game, even on Famicom. I'd love a Totoro game, it's rare to have a movie without having to throw in conflict (like Arietty did, with the old woman being unnecessarily aggressive,) but just being to have stuff going on in a movie or game would be great to me.

    These Ghibli movies are some of my favorites ever, although part of that is the art style. I would have to see the games art before thinking of buying it.
