Ni No Kuni 2 Allows Online Play in “Various Capacities”
Kingdom building hinted at playing a part.
Level-5’s Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will offer a compelling single-player campaign for its players but in an interesting new twist, online multiplayer will also be supported this time around.
An official Bandai Namco interview (via Gematsu) with Akihiro Hino, president and CEO of Level-5, revealed that, “There will be multiplayer. You will be able to play online with your friends in various capacities.”
Hino talked about the game’s kingdom building mechanics briefly again. “At its core, Ni No Kuni is an RPG game where you traverse the world map and go on adventures. However, a large part of the mechanics of the game deal with the kingdom building. Throughout your adventure you collect things to help your kingdom grow, and that is a big part of the gameplay as well.”
It also seems that characters from the previous game will appear though Hino hasn’t stated which. As for the multiplayer, perhaps players can cooperate and assist the building of each other’s kingdoms?
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is out on November 10th for PS4 and PC. What are your thoughts on the game? Let us know below.
