Bandai Namco announced that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has gone gold, meaning that its development is now complete and the game is preparing for manufacture for its March 23 release date.
Ni no Kuni II is being developed by Level-5, with participation from former Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose and music from Joe Hisaishi who composed the soundtracks of many Ghibli films.
The game follows Evan Pettywhiser Tildrum, the young ruler of Ding Dong Dell who is dethroned by a treacherous coup. In his adventure, he’ll meet new friends in Roland, Tani, Batu, Lofty, and many others that will help Evan build a new kingdom free of strife while uniting the world of Ni no Kuni.
Players will get to explore the world’s many exotic locations, meet a wide cast of characters, take on dangerous foes, and work with plenty of allies eager to help. Among the helpers are the little natural phenomena known as the Higgledies. The Higgledies provide invaluable support in battle with offensive and defensive buffs, and can help Evan and friends by increasing their special attack power.
There are 100 unique Higgledies to collect, each with their own powers. In battle you’ll mix and match different combinations to gain the strategic edge over your opponents.
