PS4/PC RPG Ni No Kuni 2 Release Date Delayed

You'll have to wait a bit longer.


Ni no Kuni gained a devoted following when it launched back in 2013, and Ni no Kuni II aims to give players even more of its distinctive JRPG gameplay and story. Today, however, Bandai Namco announced that players will have to wait a bit longer for the game, as it's been delayed for two months.

Previously scheduled for release on January 19 on PS4 and PC, Ni No Kuni II has been pushed back until March 23 . According to a press release, this delay is due to developer Level-5 needing more time to ensure that the game meets the studio's standards.
