"Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom" New Release Date

In a video released by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Hino-San informed fans and gamers alike that they decided to delay the release of their video game "Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom". Designed for PlayStation 4 and PC, the sequel to "Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch" will now have a release date of Jan. 19, 2018.

According to Hino-San, the decision to delay the release of the game is to give more time to develop the game to deliver the "full "Ni no Kuni II" experience. Hino-San, who also serves as the game's story writer and director, assured their fans that they will strive to provide a satisfying single player experience.

No Multiplayer Mode on "Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom"

Speaking of single player experience, Hino-San also clarified earlier reports that "Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom" will have a multiplayer mode. In his special message (watch video below) to "Ni no Kuni" fans, Hino-san confirmed that there will be no multiplayer mode on "Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom".

"Please allow me to clarify that Ni no Kuni II will not have multiplayer content. I misunderstood the interview question, thinking it was asking about online content in general, and my answer referred to online announcements of in-game events," said Hino-San. "As a result of this, I wrongly gave the impression that the game features multiplayer content. I would like to sincerely apologize for causing this misunderstanding."

Japanese video game developer Level-5 will release "Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom" in Japan, while Bandai Namco Entertainment will handle the worldwide release of the game. Watch Hino-San's special message to "Ni no Kuni" fans:
