Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Gameplay Trailer

We catch a glimpse of what Bandai Namco means by "build your own Kingdom."

Bandai Namco has presented another trailer for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. We see a bit more gameplay, especially in combat with a few bosses and the various environments you will encounter. The first boss is a bird-like creature and the second is a rat-like creature, the third a furry minotaur, and the last is a large dragon with a lion face, much like the Chinese Foo Dog statues.

The environments are equally diverse. With your companions you explore vast grasslands, mountains, and caves. All of which are rendered beautifully, with about as much detail as Monster Hunter World’s trailers.

There are deserts too, with entire civilizations built into stone cliffs and high plateaus. These folk have quite a bit of flying technology, in the way of airplanes with mechanical bird wings attached. The last and more colorful environments are a large city, something that looks like a stereotypical Hong Kong. Bright neon lights show the way as you pass large buildings with bold red, green, and gold.

We catch a glimpse of what Bandai Namco means by “build your own Kingdom.” The combat here is a but more top-down and with invading armies rather than the large bosses described before. We also see the placement of a few buildings and walls, though not as explicitly as we might hope.

If you’re interested, you can pre-order the game in three varying editions. There is the standard, Prince, and King. The Prince edition includes the game, a season pass, steenbok case, and an exclusive “making-of” Blu-ray. The King edition includes all of the latter in the Prince edition as well as a vinyl record of the game’s soundtrack (with a foldout diorama), a music box, and an art book. There are not prices set yet.

If you pre-order Ni No Kuni II, regardless of the edition, you will received a special in-game sword set for characters Evan and Roland. This set is an no extra cost.

Ni No Kuni II: The Revenant Kingdom will be coming January 19, 2018 on the PS4 and PC.
