Level-5 Japan has released new information regarding the first paid DLC for Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. Titled "Labyrinth of the Ghost King", this upcoming expansion offers a new bonus dungeon and equipment rewards.
Update (October 25): Bandai Namco Entertainment America has revealed this DLC to be called 'Lair of the Lost Lord' in the West.
The Labyrinth is a challenge dungeon found near the Rubbly Ruins, and it is more difficult than the Faraway Forest included within the main game. The ruler of the Labyrinth is Ghost King Lamikill [Prince of Wraiths in the West], who was the leader of a kingdom that once ruled the Heartlands before Evan founded the kingdom of Evermore. Chaotic energy is emanating from the labyrinth and threatens Evermore, so Evan and his friends vow to investigate.
Battles inside the Labyrinth will exhibit a new wrinkle on the combat system not found elsewhere in the game, labeled 'Extreme'. [Update: This system is called "Martial Method" in the west.] However, this system has yet to be detailed. As a part of the DLC, more than 80 new equipment items will be available. The DLC will also contain new quests and boss encounters, including a rematch from the main game.
Ni No Kuni II's DLC offerings were outlined by Bandai Namco Entertainment America back in July. 'Labyrinth of the Ghost King' is the first of two DLC packs included within the game's Season Pass, and it's set to release this winter. A second DLC pack, described as a story expansion, is set to release in early 2019.
