This upcoming role-playing video game developed by Level-5 and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is a sequel to Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 on March 23.
Players control Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, a young king who was usurped from his castle and sets out to reclaim his kingdom. Having been thrown off his throne, Evan must now begin to build a new kingdom quite literally. It’s an interesting idea that, if it sustains its ingenuity, could prove to be really effective in giving players their own personal stamp on the world.
Players can freely navigate Evan throughout the game’s open world, other characters can be controlled during battles against enemies. When players encounter enemies, they enter a battle system. During battles, players command a single human ally, all characters are manually moved around the battlefield and players use magical abilities and elemental creatures known as “Higgledies”, which are used to cast spells.
This game is played from a third-person perspective. Players complete quests linear scenarios with set objectives to progress through the story. Outside of quests, players can freely roam the open world, where they explore towns, villages, dungeons, and other dangerous places scattered throughout the world. Upon leaving a location, players enter the World Map, which can be used to select a destination; the overworld represents a diorama, and the characters are portrayed with a chibi-like design.
