Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is getting closer to its January 2018 release date, and Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for the sequel to the popular RPG. This latest trailer is gameplay based, but it shows off how beautiful the title is. As expected of this series!

Here is the Ni no Kuni II gameplay trailer, called The Light May Yet Return:

Ni no Kuni II is still about two months out. While you’re waiting, read our E3 preview for more on the game:

Every so often a truly unique gem rises above the rest of the games, and some of these titles are strong enough to shine long far beyond their release year. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is one such game, having landed as our RPG of the year in 2013 in spite of it being an English port of the Japanese version that released in 2011. That’s right, it was that good. Ni no Kuni meshes stunning Studio Ghibli style art with some of the best JRPG mechanics to create one of the few games that I was ever sad to get a Platinum on, just because the adventure had come to an end.

The announcement of Ni no Kuni 2 has me back on the edge of my seat and E3 2017 finally gave me a chance to go hands-on with it, if only for a brief period. Once again, Level 5 is blurring the line between interactivity and animation. Headed by an all-star development team straight from Studio Ghibli, and the same team that made the first game, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is in good hands.

Ni no Kuni II: Reverant Kingdom will release January 19, 2018 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
