In a press release Bandai Namco revealed today, the publisher announced Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be available on November 10, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. This follow-up to the well-received traditional JRPG is being developed solely by Level-5 without the involvement of Studio Ghibli like with the first game. Regardless, it's shaping up pretty spectacularly, and we can't wait to get our hands on it!
Here are some more details from the press release:
Explore a beautifully crafted world and experience a gripping story in an all-new RPG adventure. Famed Japanese developer, LEVEL-5, reunites with former Studio Ghibli artist, Yoshiyuki Momose, for character design, and Joe Hisaishi for music composition in the production of the next Ni no Kuni tale. 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 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.
