Undoubtedly the most exciting part of Sony’s PlayStation Experience keynote last night was the announcement of the PlayStation 4 exclusive Ni no Kuni 2, the sequel to the PS3/Nintendo DS original game, which stands as one of the most charming JRPGs in recent years. The new game looked charming and gorgeous, and like everything that we would want from a modern, big budget console JRPG.
“With its emotional storytelling, innovative gameplay, and breathtaking aesthetics, the original Ni no Kuni broke new ground in the RPG genre and became one of the most beloved and well-received games of 2013,” said Bandai Namco Entertainment of America Vice President of Marketing Eric Hartness. “With Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, the artistic visionaries behind the first game are back to take their creative vision of a grand adventure to even higher heights that are sure to delight video game fans.”
You can check out the new screenshots for the game below. They are breathtakingly gorgeous.
