Even though the game has been once again delayed, Bandai Namco continues to release information on the upcoming Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, and today is no different as another video of gameplay has been been released, giving fans a great look at the combat found within the game.
As you can tell from the video above, the battle taking place is one of the new features in Ni no Kuni II, the Army-on-Army gameplay. These battles see Evan commanding his own squad of soldiers and taking them to battle against other squads, and will be fully debuted in the game when it launches.

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: Revenant Kingdom is now slated to launch on March 23, 2018.
