Looks like Ni No Kuni 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch

UPDATE: DLC-stuffed version launches September.

UPDATE 20/5/21: Bandai Namco has now officially confirmed Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom for Nintendo Switch, and given it a release date of 17th September.

As detailed in the earlier ratings board leak, below, this will be the Prince's Edition version of the game with both of its major DLCs included: The Lair of the Lost Lord and The Tale of a Timeless Tome. You'll also get a collection of items, including a "Proper Tidy" ring themed around the game's fairy helper.

Here's a look at all that in action:

ORIGINAL STORY 30/4/21: A Nintendo Switch version of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom looks to be on the way.

This version, named Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom: Prince's Edition, has popped up on the ESA ratings board with no further explanation (as spotted by Gematsu).

Originally released for PC and PlayStation 4 back in 2018, this role-playing game sequel later received a smattering of DLC add-ons. Presumably the "Prince's Edition" Nintendo Switch version will wrap these in?

A standalone story separate from the wonderful Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, this follow-up was generally well-received - though some fans missed the previous game's characters and companion system.

Years late, Wrath of the White Witch did turn up on Nintendo Switch - so it's not a huge surprise to see Revenant Kingdom apparently set to do the same.

"Not the charmer its predecessor was, but a jolly 40 hour epic with dashing combat and an engrossing empire-building subgame," Edwin wrote in Eurogamer's Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom review.
