Ni no Kuni is getting an anime movie this summer in Japan (no word on an international release). Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino is writing the script and former Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose is directing. Previously, Level-5 has turned Professor Layton, Yokai Watch and Inazuma Eleven into anime.

Ni no Kuni II is getting three downloadable content packs—first, a free Adventure Pack with new bosses and quests that’ll be out August 9; then, a paid new dungeon this winter and a new story pack in early 2019. The latter two will be included with the $20 season pass.

Here’s a two-month delay for Ni no Kuni 2, which will now be out on March 23, 2018. The sequel to Bandai Namco’s cartoony role-playing game was previously scheduled for fall 2017, and then for January 2018.

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be out on November 10, 2017. It’s coming to PS4 and PC, unlike the first game, which was a PS3 exclusive. Hopefully combat involves less cat-herding this time around.
