Ni no Kuni II Announced For PS4

Today at the PlayStation Experience, developer Level-5 announced Ni no Kuni II, a sequel to the lovely cartoon role-playing game they developed in coordination with the talented animators at Studio Ghibli.


This one’s coming to PlayStation 4, and it looks phenomenal, although there’s no release date yet. The first Ni no Kuni was released in North America as a PS3 exclusive back in 2013. I loved it, warts and all.

Bandai Namco published the first one and will handle this one, too. You can watch the gorgeous debut trailer above.



So is it a console game first and foremost or a re-skin of a portable game that insult your intelligence because adapting puzzle meant to be drawning challenge into “pick the right spell from the list” challenge doesn’t really work? Yes drippy, I wonder how exactly I’ll open that lock door 2 min after receiving the unlock door spell.
