Bandai Namco and Level-5 announced today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be missing its originally intended November 10 release date in the west. Instead, the game will (hopefully) see the light of day on January 19, 2018 for the Playstation 4 and PC. Coincidentally enough, this would be the same week that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch celebrates its 5th anniversary in America as well.
Through a video message posted below, Level-5 CEO and Ni no Kuni II director Akihiro Hino has stated, "We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans."
He goes on to say, "I deeply apologize to those who have been looking forward to the game’s release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.”
Furthermore, the video serves to correct a comment he made back during E3 2017 and we reported on that Ni no Kuni II would feature a multiplayer component. This, in fact, will not be the case at all, and he clears it up as stating he misunderstood the question and thought it was a general inquiry.
