Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is an anime inspired RPG. This sequel to the popular original combines the sweeping storytelling and gorgeous visuals with an all new plot.
Return to fairy world
With artists and composers from classic Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli, the overall appearance of Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is immediately familiar to fans of films such as Spirited Away. The game combines traditionally animated cutscenes with bright visuals to create a dreamlike world with a classic RPG base, blurring the line between game and animation. While the gameplay itself, based around capturing and training monsters, is no great leap forward for the genre, this takes a back seat to the overall experience. Sweeping scores and great world building take the player on a fantastic grand adventure, with this sequel focusing on the tale of young king Evan. It should be said that the decidedly non-mature world of Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom may not appeal to all gamers, however.
Bigger and better
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom builds on all the epic world of the original in all the right ways with a compelling story. Those who enjoy Ghibli films or RPG experiences are in for a real treat.
