The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has issued a rating for Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Prince’s Edition on Nintendo Switch, which suggests that LEVEL-5’s role-playing game is coming to the portable home console.
It was previously released for PlayStation 4 and PC back in March 2018, and is a sequel to Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – which has since been treated to a Nintendo Switch port – but was set hundreds of years after the events that had unfolded in the original game.
“This is an adventure role-playing game in which players assume the role of a man helping a half-human child to defeat an evil force,” the ESRB rating reads. “From a third-person perspective, players explore environments and engage in melee combat against fantasy creatures (e.g., half-human soldiers, skeletons, monsters). Players use swords, fireballs, pistols, arrows, and hammers to defeat enemies. Combat is highlighted by impact sounds, cries of pain, and occasional gunfire. A handful of cutscenes depict quick splashes of blood when characters are shot.”
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom once again promised players “an unforgettable adventure which blurs the line between animated feature film and video game.” After the young king Evan is overthrown in a coup, he must set out to found a new kingdom, reunite his world and protect those that inhabit it from the dark forces that threaten them.
