Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom offers a three-way toss-up for the title of ‘favourite Higgledy’ - the tiny spirits that support you in battle. It is between Runcible the Righteous, Filgree the Flighty, and Wiff-Waff the Wafty. But the decision will have to wait. We are about to solve some issues with a state-run casino town overseen by a holy pug before settling our own kingdom in order to unite the world’s nations (and give a bunch of sky pirates some work).
JRPGs, eh? What are they like.
Sad about the absence of Studio Ghibli in the sequel? The best anime games on PC should cheer you up.
Revenant Kingdom is Level 5 and Bandai Namco’s follow-up to the half-made-by-Studio Ghibli 2011 original, this time lacking input from the legendary animation house (but with some former Ghibli staff on the dev team). Instead, we are looking at a purer Level 5 JRPG the likes of which you will be familiar with if you have played any of the studio’s previous output - which, to be fair, you probably are not if you play all your games on PC.
