Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Well, it looks like we won’t be returning to the world of Ni no Kuni as soon as we thought. Bandai Namco announced today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has been delayed to January 19th, 2018. This delay includes both the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game.

President and CEO of Level-5 and also director of the game, Akihiro Hino, made this statement:

We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans. I deeply apologize to those who have been looking forward to the game’s release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.

Furthermore, Hino also released a special message on Youtube, announcing the delay and clarifying that the game will not have online multiplayer:

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was originally set to release on November 10th.
