Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Level-5 announced that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be delayed by a couple months from its November 10 release to January 19, 2017.
Here’s a message about the delay from Level-5 CEO and president Akihiro Hino:
“We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans. I deeply apologize to those who have been looking forward to the game’s release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.”
You can watch the special message from Akihiro Hino in the above video, where he addresses a miscommunication in an E3 2017 interview where they talked about Ni no Kuni II’s multiplayer content. Hino explains in the video that this was a misunderstanding, as he thought the topic was about online content in general.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom’s new release date is January 19, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
