By on

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom was recently revealed at PlayStation Experience 2015 and it will be bringing back the same charm and cell-shaded graphics of the original title. If you had a few nitpicks from Ni No Kuni, it seems that developer Level-5 is promising to give a better and more vibrant gaming experience.

In a developer video, director Akihiro Hino said they are trying to make Ni No Kuni 2 a complete package which will endear gamers. ?Of course, there are exciting game systems, compelling stories, and beautiful visuals in the game, but we also want to unify them in a way that enhances these characters and breathes life into the world,? Hino said per Gematsu.

Hino said they have also tried to improve on the visuals of the original title. ?I really admired Studio Ghibli?s artistic and narrative style, so I thought if I could create a game with that style as its foundation, everyone could enjoy it, and that motivated me to make the first game. We pushed ourselves to integrate and enhance Studio Ghibli?s artistic styles into the game.?

Story

According to GamesRadar, gamers will play as the ousted king Evan Pettywhisker and he will try to reclaim his throne with the aid of a man from another world named Roland. ?The story is about a young boy?s journey to become King, through which he experiences many hardships, making both friends and enemies along the way,? Hino said. ?He?ll receive help and provide even more, all contributing to his growth as a person and as a King.?

It is still unclear if Japanese animation film studio ?Studio Ghibli? will be collaborating with Level-5 for Ni No Kuni 2. Studio Ghibli worked on notable films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away. A release date for the game has yet to be revealed by Bandai Namco.
