After having already been delayed Bandai Namco and Level-5 have put the release of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom to March 23, 2018.
Level-5 CEO and president Akihiro Hino issued this statement about the delay: “As you all know Level-5 is committed to delivering the highest levels of design and quality in each of our video game titles. The development of our latest project Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is coming along very well and we can’t wait to share this new adventure with you our fans. In an effort to constantly innovate and bring new experiences to players, we’ve also implemented new modes in Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom including the new Skirmish and Kingdom Modes which will surly delight players.
However with innovation and new ideas come the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive package. This means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom experience meets Level-5 and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.’s high quality standards. So today I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom’s worldwide release date to 23rd March, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and PC. We will be sharing more news about Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to our new launch date. On behalf of everyone at Level-5, I want to thank you all for your patience and continued support.”
It’s a shame fans will now have to wait longer to play this much anticipated sequel but it’s always better to get a good game late than a broken game early. For now, this new trailer including interviews with the Japanese cast will have to tide you over until the release.
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will be released on March 23, 2018 for the Playstation 4 and PC.
