Three years after its initial release on PC and PlayStation 4, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom – Prince Edition is finally available on Nintendo Switch.
Yesterday, a short trailer was posted by Nintendo of America’s official Twitter account to announce that Revenant Kingdom had finally been released to play on Switch. The video is narrated by the game’s main character – Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, the young Grimalkin king who reigns over Ding Dong Dell. The 30 second clip has already been viewed over 70 thousand times by fans.
Set centuries after the events of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Revenant Kingdom shows Evan’s quest to to build a new kingdom after being overthrown. Evan is joined by human Roland Crane, a president from Earth who arrives as a younger version of his current self. The party is rounded out by human Tani and her father, Batu – boss of the Sky Pirates, chief advisor to the queen of Hydropolis – Leander Aristides, as well as one of the founders of Broadleaf named Bracken Meadows.
Revenant Kingdom is open world, so you are free to roam the lands, dungeons, and other places across the world – including Goldpaw, Hydropolis, Broadleaf and Ding Dong Dell. In order to progress through the story, however, you must complete quests, including battles. The magical RPG lets you switch between characters during battle.
The Prince’s Edition will have not only the full game, but expansion packs – including The Lair of the Lost Lord and The Tale of a Timeless Tome – and the Prince’s Equipment Pack DLC – consisting of soreaway sweets, savior’s tears, steak dinners and all-be-gones. It is currently priced at $59.99 and is worth 300 Nintendo Gold Points.
Some fans noticed the difference in animation regarding the cutscenes in Revenant Kingdom when compared to the ones in Wrath of the White Witch. This more than likely can be attributed to the fact that Studio Ghibli – the animation powerhouse with its own museum that is currently building a theme park in Japan – was not involved in Revenant Kingdom. After Hayao Miyazaki’s foray into retirement then un-retirement, Ghibli saw a lot of shifts in directors, staff and animators, which is more than likely why they were not able to collaborate with the sequel.
In other Ni No Kuni news, a mobile game – Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds – was released a few months ago in Japan as part of the Ni no Kuni universe.
And Ni No Kuni 2 isn’t the only game making its way to Switch. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. Kakarot will be released this Friday and is currently available for pre-order for $59.99.
