Ni no Kuni Sequel Confirmed by Developer Level-5
In an interview with Japanese magazine Nikkei, translated and reported on by Dualshockers, Level-5 president Akihiro Hino confirmed that a new Ni no Kuni game is in the works, and will release sometime after the upcoming Ni no Kuni movie, which premiers on August 29 in Japan.
Hino didn’t give many details beyond that, unfortunately, but did comment on how Level-5 is currently reviewing its development process, according to Dualshockers. Level-5’s recent projects, Yo-kai Watch 4 and Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin, were both delayed. In the interview, Hino implied that Level-5 is aiming to regain the trust of its fanbase after these delays.
With that information in mind, it’s reasonable to assume that this new Ni no Kuni game won’t see release for some time, although Level-5 seems dedicated to expanding the franchise through its film adaptation.
IGN gave Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom a 7.8 out of 10, and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch a 9.4 out of 10. Wrath of the White Witch is currently being remastered for PC.
