Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was announced at PlayStation Experience for the PlayStation 4.
The game was announced with a beautiful new trailer (featured above), and the game is absolutely stunning. The game 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. “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.”
The key staff working on the game include:
- Story & General Director: Akihiro Hino
- Character Design: Yoshiyuki Momose
- Music: Joe Hisashi
Continuing with the same Studio Ghibli artstyle, the game appears to follow Evan, a young boy who is the king of Ding Dong Dell, and follows him on a brand new adventure through the world of Ni no Kuni.
No release date was announced with the trailer, unfortunately, so even the release year is up in the air.
