Bandai Namco has released a new gameplay video of its upcoming JRPG Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. The video showcases the first few minutes of the game, in which we get to see Evan meeting Roland, and their escape from the royal palace of Ding Dong Dell.
In the world of Ni no Kuni, there is a kingdom called Ding Dong Dell, where cats, mice and humans used to live in harmony. After a coup, the cat folk and their King Evan were banished. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom recounts the story of this deposed king in his journey to build his own kingdom and unite the whole world.
With him are his faithful friends Roland, Tani and the beings known as Higgledies who come from the power of the heart, a power which is found within people, animals and elements such as fire and water. Only those with pure hearts can see them. The Higgledies will lend Evan their support throughout his journey, helping him in battles and letting him reach places he wouldn't otherwise be able to get to.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will launch on PS4 and PC on the 23rd of March.
