■ New Random Dungeon: “Labyrinth”

Summary

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

A mysterious gate suddenly appeared at the Rubbly Ruins. Beyond the gate is a chaotic space where the cause of the corruption can be found.

“The Prince of Wraiths,” who rules over the Labyrinth, seems to be using the corruption to try to destroy Evan’s kingdom of Evermore.

If the Labyrinth is left alone, the corruption will slip out from the gate and swallow up Evermore. In order to defeat the Prince of Wraiths, Evan and company take on the Labyrinth…

A Labyrinth Covered in Mysteries

The Labyrinth was created long ago to seal something away, but now that it has carried out its duty, a chaotic random dungeon seems to be spreading within it. The corruption that drifts from the gate signals the dungeon’s terror… What lies in wait at its innermost depths?

■ New Boss: “The Prince of Wraiths”

The Prince of Wraiths

Once the king of Endrasis, a kingdom that was located in the Heartlands. Now the ruler of the Labyrinth, it is said that no one who has witnesses the mysterious Lamikyl returns alive. He was somehow corrupted by darkness and became “The Ghost King,” but what is his purpose..?

■ New System: “Martial Method System”

A new system called the “Martial Method System” that enhances the player’s battle style has also been added. It appears that new changes obtained from memories of people Evan meets through his journey will be added to the battle style. What sorts of changes can the Martial Method include? Stay tuned for a future update.

■ Over 80 New Equipment Items

Over 80 new weapons and armor equipment items have been added. From those with a glistening and gem-like radiance to those that give off a sinister aura, but just how strong are they…?
