The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has features an interview with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino on Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.
Get the tidbits below.
Creating a kingdom is a major theme of Ni no Kuni II, but what kinds of new systems are there?
Hino: “Of course, a system for creating a kingdom will appear. That being said, that doesn’t mean you’re actually going to be building a town. It’s a system in which the arrangement of your workforce is what’s vital. What kind of kingdom you build depends on how you play, so you can enjoy building your own kingdom different from those of other players.
“Also, although it’s a different element from kingdom creation, there is a very big secret related to an ‘important new system’ regarding the fact that the field map appears in the style of a diorama.
“While I can’t say anything yet, this is a fairly anticipated system that, with this system alone, is enough to make me want to make a separate game.”
What’s up with the Japanese voice cast?
“I don’t want to let out any hints yet, but we’re going to have a lot of really wonderful actors.”
The magazine also reveals that development is currently 45 percent complete.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017.
