Level-5's Ni no Kuni sequel Revenant Kingdom gets its second major DLC episode next week, March 19th, in the form of The Tale of a Timeless Tome - and there's a brand-new trailer to get you in the mood.
According to publisher Bandai Namco, The Tale of a Timeless Tome will introduce new story elements, new locations, new characters, and new fighting Methods, with much of it themed around a mysterious entity known as the Conductor.
The Conductor - a giant, tuxedo-wearing rabbit - inhabits a dream world "where people's memories mix and mingle" that protagonist Evan slips into while falling asleep at the Goldpaw Inn. "Who is this off character and what is his objective?", asks Bandai Namco, as if it didn't know the answer already. Additional intrigue may be found in the new trailer below.
Level-5's Ni no Kuni sequel Revenant Kingdom is poised to get a little larger this week, with the long-awaited arrival of its first major paid DLC expansion on December 13th.
Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom has officially received its second delay, and will now release on PC and PS4 on March 23rd 2018, according to publisher Bandai Namco.
UPDATE 2.35pm: Ni No Kuni's season pass has now been officially announced. There's little more information on what it contains, however, other than the fact the game will have two post-launch expansions.
Ni No Kuni 2 has been delayed to 19th January 2018, developer Level-5 has announced.
Ni No Kuni 2, Level-5's follow-up to the exquisite 2013 JRPG, has been given a final release date, with the Bandai Namco published game coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on November 10th.
We've yet to see too much of Ni No Kuni 2, though Studio Ghibli's involvement does seem to have been dialled back a little. Still, Joe Hisaishi is still on music duties, and it still looks absolutely splendid. Not too long left to find out if it reaches the heights of the original - a game that was 'rich yet breezy, classic yet modern, exquisitely made and completely sure of itself," as Oli noted in his review - and, more importantly, to see if Drippy is at least making a cameo.
We hope to have a little more on Ni No Kuni 2 for you later this week.
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will be released for PC along with PlayStation 4 when it launches later this year.
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom has been shown in new detail tonight at the PlayStation Experience.
UPDATE 7/12/15 2.35pm The announcement of Ni No Kuni 2 during Saturday's PlayStation Experience keynote was one of the highlights of the night. Now, publisher Bandai Namco has revealed an extended version of the game's reveal trailer.
Around a minute of extra footage is included in the director's cut trailer below. There's several new story scenes, for example, which give hints at how the tale will open.
Also of note is the confirmation that Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi will return to score the game's soundtrack, even if Studio Ghibli itself appears to be less involved this time.
