Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom Will Be out Later This Year

Thank you, unexpected release date-revealing press release.

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

Good morning everyone. The sun is shining. I'm exhausted. It's somehow only Day 2 of E3 (technically), and thanks to a handy press release Bandai Namco shot our way regarding all their games at E3, we finally have a release date for Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will be out November 10, 2017 on Playstation 4 and PC. The PC edition was announced earlier this year, and piques wonders if the original will ever make its way to the platform too.

The first Ni No Kuni, released in 2012 for Playstation 3, was a delightful collaboration between Studio Ghibli and Level-5. Studio Ghibli brought their world and characters designs, earnestness, and signature composer Joe Hisaishi along for the title, while Level-5 created a remarkable world around it for players to explore. The game itself proved to be rather divisive—our former colleague Bob Mackey did not love it—but it quickly became one of my favorite JRPGs of all-time.

I'm worried about the sequel because Studio Ghibli won't be directly involved this time around (but at least Hisaishi's still providing a swelling score), but I suppose we'll all be seeing how it is when it releases later this year in a now-stuffed fall season of games.
