Ni no Kuni II: Revenant KingdomNi no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is the new instalment in the Ni no Kuni franchise, and this game will be something unique. How come? The role-playing adventure will be based on Studio Ghibli and the massive world they have created – one that is fun for the entire family, not just for children, not just for teenagers, not just for the parents – for everyone.

The game will follow a young male protagonist (although most Ghibli stories focus on female characters), but will strive to provide a story which will be enjoyable for all audiences.

As seen in the first trailer, we will meet a lovely female protector, but she seems to be disappearing from the boy’s side quite soon, leaving him alone with a stranger from a different world. The boy, a young noble man, will have to create his own kingdom where “everyone can live happily”.

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be playable on PlayStation 4 and on it worked Akihiro Hino and artist Yoshiyuki Momose, alongside composer and longtime Ghibli collaborator Joe Hisaishi. As you may have guessed by these names, Level 5 is in charge of the project.

This is the second game with Ghibli influence after Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, which came out for the PlayStation 3 in 2011 (Japan) and 2013 (western world).
