Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom Delayed To March 2018 – Rumor
Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom, the second entry in the series developed by Level-5, may be released later than anticipated, following its first delay which brought the release date to January 2018.
According to several online reports, Best Buy has been sending emails to those who pre-ordered the game, stating that Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom will release on March 9th instead of January 19th. As Bandai Namco has yet to confirm the new release date, we have to take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement comes in. Still, this delay would make sense in some way, as the second half of January and February are stacked with high-profile releases such as Monster Hunter World, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and others.
Back in September, Dave had the chance to try out Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom, noting how the game is a definite improvement over its predecessor in pretty much every way.
The world is more beautiful than ever, too. Characters are more detailed, areas are sprawling with filled with small visual flourishes, and of course animations are prettier than ever too. The visuals and new battle system combine during boss fights to make for a wonderful experience – many more enemies on screen than was possible on PlayStation 3, many more attacks and effects present, and of course all in that beautiful cel-shaded art style the original was famous for.
The game is tough, too – bosses hit hard. The new flexibility in battles means you have to be more aware than ever, making space so you can heal and deal damage from safety, rather than tanking damage and persevering – though I’m sure that’s possible too with a bit of grinding.
Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom officially launches in January 2018 on PC and PlayStation 4. We will keep you updated on the rumored delay as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
