Today Bandai Namco released a brand new batch of screenshots of Level-5’s upcoming JRPG Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.
As usual, the screenshots are absolutely charming and in shiny 4K resolution, accompanied by artwork showing off the Higgledies, who are spirits of nature that will accompany Evan during his quest. They can attack enemies, provide elemental and physical buffs, and open new paths when exploring dungeons. There are a hundred unique Higgledy heroes that can be collected, each with unique attacks and special powers. They will be listed in a menu titled the Higgledy Almanac.
Who doesn’t want to play with Sir Pipple the Whipper and Boojum the Bombastic?
We also get to see Kingdom Mode, that allows the player to create Evermore, Evan’s kingdom. You can place a variety of buildings to create the kingdom’s infrastructure and provide jobs for the citizenry. This will unlock new items, weapons, and even Higgledies that will become available in the main game.
As a bonus, this time around the screenshots are in English, giving us a good chance to take a glimpse at the localization.
You can enjoy the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy more screenshots from the Japanese version of the game, a video featurette focusing on the characters, another from December about the kingdom builder feature itself, a longer gameplay video showcasing the skirmish mode, another semi-recent gameplay clip focusing on boss battles, one more gallery of screenshot and artwork, a trailer focusing on animation and visuals, and another trailer featuring the Japanese voice actors.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will release for PS4 and PC on March 23rd, 2018.
