The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
The original Ni No Kuni was a magical collaboration between developer Level-5 (known for the Professor Layton series) and Studio Ghibli (the Oscar-winning animation studio); it combined solid RPG mechanics with an absolutely gorgeous visual style. And while the sequel will not involve Studio Ghibli in the mix directly, their previous work on the series can be clearly seen in the game's screenshots. However, outside of the announcement at E3 in 2015, details about the game have been scant, but it will be set in the same world as the previous game.
In GameSpot's 9 out of 10 review of Ni No Kuni, our reviewer Kevin VanOrd said, "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." With that kind of pedigree, it's hard not to have high expectations for what comes next.
