Ni no Kuni II Will Now Enchant PC Gamers With Its Studio Ghibli Beauty

In addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4 version, Level-5’s so-pretty-you-wish-you-could-eat-it-with-your-eyeballs JRPG Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has officially been confirmed for a 2017 PC release. An actual release date still has not been announced, but both platforms will launch simultaneously worldwide. Pre-orders have started up on Amazon for the PS4 version, but for now a Steam page has yet to go online.

Although this is total speculation and wishful thinking on my part, this announcement could be viewed as a positive sign that maybe, just maybe Bandai Namco is considering the idea of a PC port of the original Ni no Kuni. I’m so desperate to go back to that game, but my PS3 is showing its age as far as not reliably reading certain discs anymore, so at this point I’d much rather just have it on Steam.

Back to Ni no Kuni II for a moment… A brief gameplay video has surfaced online, courtesy of a preview on Polygon. Bandai Namco has also released a fresh batch of lovely new artwork and screenshots, which you’ll find down the page, underneath the aforementioned video.
