Bandai Namco and Level-5 have announced another delay for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. Previously scheduled to launch in January, the RPG will now be released for the PC and PS4 on March 23, 2018.
According to Level-5’s CEO, Akihiro Hino, the delay was necessary to make sure “everything works together in a fun and cohesive way”:
As you all know, Level-5 is committed to delivering the highest levels of design and quality in each of our titles. The development of our latest project, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, is coming along very nicely and we can’t wait to share this new adventure with you, our fans. In an effort to constantly innovate, we’ve also implemented new modes in Ni no Kuni II, including the new Skirmish and Kingdom Modes.
However, with innovation and new ideas comes the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive way; this means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni No Kuni II experience meets our highest quality standards. So today, I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni No Kuni II’s worldwide release date to March 23, 2018. We will be sharing more news about Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to our new launch date. On behalf of everyone at Level-5, I want to thank you all for your patience and continued support.
Akihiro Hino – President & CEO of Level-5
In addition to the delay, Bandai Namco unveiled a new trailer for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom that focuses on the game’s Japanese voicework, and it’s been embedded above.
