I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am to be bringing this news. Ni No Kuni was easily my favorite game of 2013, and one of the best RPG’s I remember playing in a while too (combining amazing mechanics, with a great story and interesting characters). I’ve been wanting a sequel since the credits began to roll on the first game, and just the other day I was talking with other Cinelinx team members about how much we need one. Bandai and Level-5 are giving me my wish, as revealed in this first trailer for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.
Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. is pleased to announce that Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM is in development for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Developed by famed Japanese video game studio, LEVEL-5; Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM features an all-new cast of charming characters, an emotional storyline, and innovative gameplay design that will delight and challenge players.
“With its emotional storytelling, innovative gameplay, and breathtaking aesthetics, the original Ni no Kuni broke new ground in the RPG genre and became one of the most beloved and well-received games of 2013,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “With Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM, the artistic visionaries behind the first game are back to take their creative vision of a grand adventure to even higher heights that are sure to delight video game fans.”
No release date yet, of course, but the game is REAL and coming to the PlayStation 4. Consider me on board the hype train.
