Following the colorful gameplay and demonstration videos from E3 2017, there are more information that’s revealed for Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom at the event, and Siliconera got to check them out!
The first information is about the characters. Especially the main characters who you might already know. The game’s protagonist is Evan, the son of Ding Dong Dell’s king. The little boy is crowned as a king as soon as his father’s death. Every kings have their own villains, and the little King Evan also has villains. Otto Mausinger is one of them, as he wants to overthrow Evan, and claim the throne for himself. But Evan has Aranella, someone that helps him escape the kingdom and survive from the coup d’état. Who knows, he might be able to build his own kingdom, and to do that he must convince people from other kingdom to join his.
Alongside Evan, there are Roland and Tani who were also revealed at E3, with Roland being ‘the president of a very large country’, and Tani ‘the boss of the Sky Pirate’. We also get to know a new key character named Batu who aims to become the king of the Sky Pirate. In order to become one, Batu must undergo a trial and fight against a monstrously muscled mettle-tester in the trial of courage named Thogg.
Next we gets something new but also not new. The Higgledies!
These small and cute creatures are Higgledies, the Spirit of The Heart that only those with pure heart can see. They act as the fourth member in the party, and comes with unique abilities. Here are a few of their abilities:
Wind Higgledies – These spirits can heal you
Fire Higgledies – Create barriers to shield you from fire as long as you stand in it.
Charged attacks – Higgledies are able to add elemental buffs to your regular attacks.
After the Higgledies, we got Lofty that’s kinda a mascot character.
Yet another cute and adorable character! This one acts as Evan’s Mighty Kingmaker. You can see him forming a bond with Evan at the end of E3’s trailer.
One of the kingdom that Evan’s party visit is Goldpaw, a kingdom that’s ruled by rolling dice that’s rolled by Lady Luck, a six-armed giant lady, and the one who rule this kingdom is a dog-human name Pugnacious. You might already seen this kingdom from the previous screenshot, but here is the picture again in case you haven’t seen it.
The pug is real, guys. Judging by his face, he is not trustworthy, no? Because he rigs some of the games!
New in this game is the beast that guard each of the kingdom. For example, the beast that guards Goldpaw is a dragon, and just like its kingdom Chinese elements, the dragon’s name also feels Chinese, Longfang.
Lastly we get to know about The Kingdom Building Mode. Evan’s goal is to build a kingdom, and so the mode explains all. In this mode, you can assign people to different roles for the Evan’s kingdom. You can customize so many things in this mode like the technology, and such.
Unfotunately, that’s all we get for today. More information will be revealed later.
