Bandai Namco and Level-5 have bad news for us: Ni no Kuni II‘s delayed release date. Yes, once again, Ni no Kuni II delay to March 2018, after previously announced to launch on January next year. This Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom‘s new release date will be on March 23, 2018.
Below is the message from Akihiro Hino, Level-5’s president and CEO, about the delay:
“As you all know LEVEL-5 is committed to delivering the highest levels of design and quality in each of our video game titles. The development of our latest project Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM is coming along very well and we can’t wait to share this new adventure with you our fans.
In an effort to constantly innovate and bring new experiences to players, we’ve also implemented new modes in Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM including the new Skirmish and Kingdom Modes which will surly delight players. However with innovation and new ideas come the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive package.
This means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM experience meets LEVEL-5 and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.’s high quality standards. So today I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM’s worldwide release date to 23rd March, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
We will be sharing more news about Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to our new launch date. On behalf of everyone at LEVEL-5, I want to thank you all for your patience and continued support.”
