The 3D cel-shaded RPG sequel Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was originally slated for a November release date on the Playstation 4 and PC platforms, but unfortunately the Studio Ghibli-inspired game has been delayed and its release date pushed back to January 19, 2018. The developers state that the reason being a desire to deliver “the full experience” to fans, which might be a nice way of saying that they still need more time to polish things. As much as we want to play the game now, we suppose it is much better for all parties involved as opposed to getting a broken product at launch.
The full statement from Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino:
“We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans,” said Akihiro Hino, CEO and President of LEVEL-5 Inc. “I deeply apologize to those who have been looking forward to the game’s release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.”
