Starting to get that feeling that March is going to put a strain on your wallet?
Level-5 announced that the sequel to their popular RPG – Ni no Kuni – will be seeing a delay from its previously scheduled release date of January 19th 2018 to March 23 2018. The delay was announced by director and CEO of Level-5 Akihiro Hino, who wrote that the team is still tinkering with the game to ensure it “meets our highest quality standards.”
“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 2 experience meets our highest quality standards,” Hino wrote. “So today, I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni no Kuni 2’s worldwide release date to March 23, 2018.”
Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom was originally set to launchin November of this year however the team stated that they needed extra time to work on the game. Since the announcement, they’ve added new modes such as a kingdom builder and a separate battle type called skirmishes.
The original Ni no Kuni was an amazing collaboration between Level-5 and the famed animation studio, Studio Ghibli, and was highly praised. While the sequel is developed without the collaboration of Studio Ghibli, former Ghibli character designer Yoshiyuki Momose and longtime music composer Joe Hisaishi, both of which worked on the original, would reprise their roles for Revenant Kingdom.
