BANDAI NAMCO has just revealed a new video featuring gameplay from the upcoming release of Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM.
In this new trailer, fans will follow Evan and his loyal companions Roland, Tani and the tiny colorful Higgledies. In the video we can see that the world map is no longer cell-shaded, although it is still deliciously pretty. The characters are also no longer cell-shaded and appear strangely shiny. However, all other sections of the game seem to have retained the old Studio Ghibli design style present in the original title.
While battling a monstrous enemy named Thogg, the trailer showcases how the characters make use of tiny squadrons of summons at their disposal, named “Higgledies”. These Pikmin-type creatures seem to be able to swarm enemies in groups while having unique effects depending on their color and design.
Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM will be available in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
