"The light may yet return."
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will launch for PS4 in 2017, Sony has announced. The announcement was made during the PlayStation Experience press conference, where a trailer was also shown. Check it out above.
Just like the first game, Ni No Kuni 2 is developed by Level-5. Unlike the original however, Studio Ghibli, the company behind acclaimed animated movies My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away, isn't involved.
Ni No Kuni 2 follows Evan, a boy king who must adventure through a kingdom engulfed in darkness. Evan must prove himself to be a worthy monarch and is joined on his quest by Roland, a visitor from another world. A number of other characters will also tag along for the adventure and the new trailer offers a glimpse at the colorful cast.
The original Ni No Kuni was released for PlayStation 3 in December 2010. It told the story of Oliver who, after the loss of his mother, travels to an alternative world of magic and monsters to seek out his soul mate.
In GameSpot's Ni No Kuni review Kevin Van Ord awarded the title a 9/10, saying it is "a stupendous game because there's so much to do in it, and because all of it is just so good."
He continued: "The hallmark of the greatest RPGs is that you don't want to stop playing them, and Ni No Kuni proudly joins that elite group of games providing such an enticing world that you can't imagine never having visited it. The only problem, of course, is that you may never want to leave."
