New information on Ni No Kuni II has been revealed and its HUGE! Hopefully more is to come with Tokyo Game Show around the corner, for now see the interview here.
Studio Level-5 President and CEO Akihiro Hino, in an interview with IGN Japan today, updated the status for the upcoming Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom. No footage of the sequel made it to E3 this year but with Tokyo Game Show just around the corner on the 17th and 18th of September, it kind of makes sense to get back in the news again if you are going to show your game off. This is the account with IGN:
How’s the development status on Ni no Kuni: Revenant Kingdom?
Akihiro Hino, Level-5 President and CEO: We’re working hard on it. Its scale is so massive, I believe it’s the title that probably has the most staff members from Level-5 working on it at the moment.
The previous title was a game that parent and child could play together—what about this one?
Hino: It’ll be a game that you can play normally on your own. Looking back at the previous game, with the protagonist and setting in mind, its content was very much geared towards adults, but the visuals did look a bit like it was for kids. It may have looked too much like it was for kids, and while we may have another young boy as the protagonist this time around, we’re being careful so that we can make it into something that will completely feel like it can be played by adults. As far as the world and setting goes, it’ll be something that both adults and children could get into, just like a Studio Ghibli anime.
No release date has been announced for the PS4 title but you can keep watching the trailer like me in hopes for more.
