Ni No Kuni fans got a bit of bad news earlier this week when it was announced that Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom would be delayed to March 23, 2018. According to developer Level 5’s president/CEO, Akihiro Hino, the cause of the delay is the developer’s desire to deliver a more polished and worthwhile product. He specifically cite two new modes that will be shipping with the game, “Skirmish” mode and “Kingdom” mode so it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to think that Level 5 thinks these additions are what need a bit more time in the oven.
Delays are disappointing, but one has to admit that a delay is better than rushing the product out the door. There are far too many developers guilty of pushing out unfinished products these days, so a delay for the sake of quality is almost refreshing. Kind of funny, don’t you think?
Are you looking forward to the next chapter of Ni No Kuni? What do you think of this delay?
