First unveiled at the 2015 PlayStation Experience, we’ve known for some time now that Bandai Namco and Level-5 are hard at work bringing Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom to the PS4. Today, the publisher confirmed that the RPG is also heading for the PC in 2017. So if you’re new to the franchise, Bandai Namco has provided a quick primer on the story so far…
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!
In addition to a wide and expansive world, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will also include lush animation overseen by former Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose. You can get a look at the artwork behind the RPG in a brand new set of screenshots that are available after the break.
