BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment reveals plans for a PC edition of Ni no Kuni II:
, which will come to Windows and PlayStation 4 this year. We
thought this would involve ruling over a race of monsters with shoulder-mounted
rocket launchers, perhaps set inside a hollowed-out bear. Turns out we're wrong,
as the description sadly mentions none of those elements:
Ni no Kuni II:
REVENANT KINGDOM is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated Japanese
RPG experiences coming in 2017. Developed by world renowned Japanese video game
studio Level-5 Inc. with participation of the former Studio Ghibli animator
Yoshiyuki Momose and music by Joe Hisaishi, Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM is
ready to enchant more people than ever, both on the PlayStation®4 and PC players
for the very first time!
In the world of Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM, players enter the kingdom of
Ding Dong Dell, where cats, mice, and humans once lived in harmony. After a
treacherous coup, Evan, the young boy king of Ding Dong Dell is banished from
his kingdom. Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM recounts the story of this deposed
king and his journey to build his own kingdom and unite the entire world.
Supporting Evan on his adventure are friends Roland, Tani, and beings known as
Higgledies who come from the power of the hearts found within people, animals,
and elements such as fire and wind. Only individuals with pure hearts can see
the Higgledies. The Higgledies will aid Evan throughout his journey, helping him
in battles, and letting him reach places he wouldn’t otherwise be able to
access. Join Evan on his quest as he fights powerful monsters, face perilous
dungeons, and rises to once again become a King!
