Level-5 has revealed that a new Ni no Kuni title is in development.
In an interview with Nikkei (translated by DualShockers), Level-5 President Akihiro Hino noted that a new game in the Ni no Kuni series is in production. Hino said that he wants to make the series into a bigger franchise and that the movie, which is set to debut on August 23 in Japan, is one of the steps. Hino explained that the next game will release some time after the movie.
Level-5 is also working on a smartphone app for the series, and also preparing for the launch of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered on PC and PlayStation 4, as well as the Nintendo Switch port of the original game, in September 2019. Wrath of the White Witch Remastered was leaked right before E3 and was officially announced during the event.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was released for PC and PlayStation 4 last year. OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn felt that “the game’s excellence should not be underestimated,” ultimately awarding the title a Distinction (4/5).
