After the announcement of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom at PlayStation Experience, Level-5 has been extremely silent about it. Today President Akihiro Hino finally gave a small update via an interview with IGN Japan.
Hino-san explained that the company is working hard on the game, which is very large and has the most people involved in development at Level-5 since the first Ni No Kuni.
He also mentioned that while the themes of the previous game were quite adult, he felt that the visuals looked a bit too oriented towards children. Since this time the protagonist is also a boy, developers are making sure that the themes would fit the taste of adults. Like a Studio Ghibli anime, the setting and world view should be enjoyable by both adults and children.
With the new PlayStation Meeting and Tokyo Game Show coming soon, it’ll be interesting to see is we’ll get a new look on the game, but for now we know that it’s still in active development.
