Back in September 2022, the Ni No Kuni series finally arrived on Xbox consoles with the release of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered. It is a delightful collaboration between Level-5 and Spirited Aways Studio Ghibli, creating a timeless JRPG. The sequel is now here in the form of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, along with all the post-release content from its initial release in 2018. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom PRINCE’S EDITION is out today on Xbox, and available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers too.
Fans of the first game will undoubtedly find similar enjoyment in the sequel, but it isn’t a requirement to have played it. In Ni No Kuni II, we are introduced to King Evan, an unfortunate young leader who is ousted from his kingdom. In order to reunite his people along with the rest of the world, he takes it upon himself to create an entirely new kingdom, quietly re-establishing himself from those who booted him out in the first place.
Ni No Kuni II does not offer a collaboration this time with Studio Ghibli, but you’d be forgiven for thinking that it did. It features a very similar art style from the first game, blurring the lines between traditional animation and computer imagery. Add to that another sublime soundtrack from Joe Hisaishi and you won’t be able to tell the difference at all.
The PRINCE’S EDITION comes with the base game, all previous DLC and some extra equipment to set you on your way.
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom PRINCE’S EDITION is on the Xbox Store now priced at £79.99. There is also a brief introductory discount dropping the price to £53.59 for a short period. Don’t forget, Ni No Kuni II is also available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, along with the first game. Let us know in the comments below if you will be picking this rather excellent JRPG up.
