Bandai Namco announced today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, the follow up to Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's critically acclaimed JRPG we ourselves called "a love letter to fans" will find its way to the PC digitally later this year. We haven't heard a whole lot about the game since PSX 2015, but it's always great to see more games find its way to more platforms - especially one as good-looking as this one. The publisher did not mention anything about the original Ni no Kuni, perhaps due to licensing issues as Studio Ghibli is no longer involved with the series.
In the world of Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM, players enter the kingdom of Ding Dong Dell, where cats, mice, and humans once lived in harmony. After a treacherous coup, Evan, the young boy king of Ding Dong Dell is banished from his kingdom. Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM recounts the story of this deposed king and his journey to build his own kingdom and unite the entire world.
Supporting Evan on his adventure are friends Roland, Tani, and beings known as Higgledies who come from the power of the hearts found within people, animals, and elements such as fire and wind. Only individuals with pure hearts can see the Higgledies. The Higgledies will aid Evan throughout his journey, helping him in battles, and letting him reach places he wouldn’t otherwise be able to access. Join Evan on his quest as he fights powerful monsters, face perilous dungeons, and rises to once again become a King!
Ni no Kuni II is scheduled to also be released for the PlayStation 4. You can watch the most recent trailer from PSX 2016 below:
