BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. announced today thatNi no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is now available across the Americas for the PlayStation 4 and STEAM for PC. Developed by world-renowned video game studio LEVEL-5 Inc., with participation from former Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose and music composed by Joe Hisaishi, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is ready to enchant gamers across the world in an epic role-playing game.
A treacherous coup has dethroned Evan Pettywhisker Tildrum, the young ruler of Ding Dong Dell. Evan – along with the help of his friends; Roland, Tani, Batu, Lofty, and many others they’ll meet along their journey – will build a new kingdom free of strife while uniting the whole world of Ni no Kuni. Across Evan’s grand adventure, players can explore a beautifully crafted world filled with exotic locations, a wide cast of characters to encounter, dangerous foes, and plenty of allies eager to help. Supporting Evan on his adventure will be natural phenomena known as Higgledies. The Higgledies will provide invaluable support during battles including offensive and defensive buffs, increasing special attack power for Evan and his friends, and assist in attacking enemies. There are 100 unique Higgledies to collect, each with its own special powers. Mix and match different combinations of Higgledies during combat to strategically secure the upper hand in battles.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom provides two additional game modes for players to engage in as they progress through the game’s main story. As Evan reclaims his crown in the newly formed kingdom of Evermore, he must manage all aspects of daily life within its borders. Players will erect shops, farms, barracks, and a host of other facilities to increase the economy of Evermore and provide new equipment for Evan and his allies as they venture further into the world. Hire residents to staff these shops and research new items and abilities to increase Evermore’s influence across the land. Evan will also lead an army into skirmish battles. These large-scale battles against other armies will test the resolve of Evan’s military might. Recruit new generals with special abilities to take down the opposing forces and claim victory!

Revenant Kingdom tells the story of Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, the young king of Ding Dong Dell who wishes to create a land in which everyone can live happily ever after. Of course, this is easier said than done.
After being dethroned and banished from his homeland, Evan teams up with the mysterious Roland and Sky Pirate Tani to travel the world in search of a new home and worthy allies. The narrative is unremarkable yet serviceable. It’s a tried-and-true tale of uniting the world in an effort to banish a greater evil that hits all the notes you’d expect.
If you didn’t play the previous game, don’t worry. With the exception of a few references, this is a completely new tale.
Luckily, the luscious setting and lovable cast of characters make up for the pedestrian plot which fails to effectively convey a series of backstories. Beyond a few key scenes, the likes of Roland and Tani seldom see their personalities explored, which would have been a key opportunity to grow closer to otherwise endearing faces.
Aside from the inconsistent narrative, the rest of Ni No Kuni 2 is fantastic, reaching similar heights to some of the generation’s finest role-playing efforts. The combat is fast and flashy where exploration echoes the brilliance of golden era Final Fantasy.
