Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is just 3 days – and a few hours – away from release with all feedback until now indicating that it might be one of the best titles this year. Right before its launch, Bandai Namco reveals a release trailer that is a praise to its gameplay as well as Evan’s and Roland’s relationship.
The aforementioned trailer, which is uploaded on Bandai Namco’s Youtube page, is somewhat beautiful, somewhat confusing but most of all it is exciting. Why is it confusing though? Let’s first take a look at the trailer, which features both cinematics and gameplay footage:
So, by the start of the video the narration and the series of footage shown is kind of letting us know that the main character – King of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is Roland, who is actually Evan’s (the protagonist) companion and mentor. This is not just me talking since too many people had the same question. Why is Roland showcased so much? If you’ve already seen gameplay walkthroughs of the game you probably already know what he is, for everyone else… Just wait and see.
Overall, the release trailer of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is a collection of all the previous ones we’ve seen so far. There is boss fight footage, skill showcase as well as some bad guy action in the end. This is exactly what we wanted to see before the game releases on March 20th.
This is actually not the same trailer we’ve seen a few days ago, which also had the same cinematic-gameplay combination but make sure to check that one too.
Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is releasing on PlayStation 4 and PC on March 23rd. Bandai Namco has also announced 4 special editions for the game on PlayStation 4 all containing a physical copy of the game, its season pass as well as a throne themed steel book showcasing Evan and Roland as well as many other goodies depending on the version and region.
