After waiting almost five years since the original, Wrath of the White Witch, fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to get their hands on Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, which has been pushed back to January 19th 2018.
With the game receiving a lot of critical acclaim at E3 last month, the RPG was originally set to launch on November 10th, but more time is required to ensure it meets the lofty expectations set by the cult classic.
Watch the announcement here:
“We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans. I deeply apologise to those who have been looking forward to the game’s release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.”, said Akihiro Hino CEO and President of LEVEL-5 Inc in the press release.
While game delays are always frustrating, October/November is always the absolute busiest period for game releases and niche titles like this can get lost in the shuffle. The silver lining here is that Ni no Kuni II will have the chance to get the attention it deserves when it releases on January 19th.
