Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom release delayed to March 2018

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Fans will have to wait a bit longer.

Level-5 has announced that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has had its release date pushed back from January to March 2018.

Level-5’s CEO Akihiro Hino said (via wccftech) that while development was progressing well, “with innovation and new ideas come the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive package. This means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM experience meets LEVEL-5 and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.’s high quality standards.”

The delay is the second for the title, following an initial pushback from November this year to January 19. The original Ni no Kuni gained a decent fan following among western audiences, who will no doubt be disappointed at further delays. However, we’d always rather see developers take their time to ensure a polished experience over ensuring they meet infeasible deadlines by rushing the product.

Ni no Kuni II will launch on PlayStation 4 and PC in March 2018.
