Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Level-5 have delayed the release of the upcoming RPG, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. The game now carries a Mar. 23, 2018, release date on both PlayStation 4 and PC.
Level-5 President and CEO, Akihiro Hino, explains why:
As you all know, Level-5 is committed to delivering the highest levels of design and quality in each of our titles. The development of our latest project, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, is coming along very nicely and we can’t wait to share this new adventure with you, our fans. In an effort to constantly innovate, we’ve also implemented new modes in Ni no Kuni II, including the new Skirmish and Kingdom Modes.
However, with innovation and new ideas comes the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive way; this means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni no Kuni II experience meets our highest quality standards. So today, I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni no Kuni II’s worldwide release date to Mar. 23, 2018. We will be sharing more news about Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to our new launch date. On behalf of everyone at Level-5, I want to thank you all for your patience and continued support.
To help with the delay, Bandai Namco and Level-5 have released a new trailer showcasing the game.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is the sequel to the 2010 game Ni no Kuni.
