Here’s a rundown on the Switch port:
Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM – PRINCE’S EDITION, developed by world-renowned video game studio LEVEL-5 Inc., with participation from the legendary artist Yoshiyuki Momose and music composed by Joe Hisaishi, tells the story of Evan Pettywhisker Tildrum, the young ruler of Ding Dong Dell. Evan is dethroned by a treacherous coup and must rebuild a new kingdom free of strife while uniting the whole world of Ni no Kuni. Across Evan’s grand adventure, players can explore a beautifully crafted world filled with exotic locations, a wide cast of characters to encounter, dangerous foes, and plenty of allies eager to help. Supporting Evan on his adventure are his friends Roland, Tani, Batu, Lofty and a natural phenomena known as the Higgledies. The Higgledies will provide invaluable support during battles including offensive and defensive buffs, increasing special attack power for Evan and his friends, and assist in attacking enemies. There are 100 unique Higgledies to collect, each with its own special powers. Mix and match different combinations of Higgledies during combat to strategically secure the upper hand in battles.
In addition to the full critically acclaimed campaign from the original 2018 release (available now on PlayStation 4 and PC), Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM – PRINCE’S EDITION contains both DLC packs, which includes The Lair of the Lost Lord and Tale of a Timeless Tome, a $25 value.
A previous ESRB rating for the Switch port was found, pointing to the game including the base game and all its post-launch DLC.
The original Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is now available for PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
