Story and features
The adventure RPG sequel to Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch sees players control a new hero, young king Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, of the cat tribe. Evan's life is soon at risk, and so too is his kingdom, as the warring rat tribe seek to overthrow him.
Joined by a mysterious traveler called Roland - and Tani, the daughter of the boss of air pirates - players must help Evan embark on an open-world adventure to defeat monsters and create his kingdom. Players will, quite literally, build a kingdom from scratch, completing various missions to improve and maintain their new surroundings - which includes researching, constructing new buildings and recruiting new members to join your society.
Ni no Kuni II features real-time combat, granting players access to wide battle zones often seen and appreciated in other anime-style RPG games. Venturing further into the game, you'll be given access to Skirmish battles, which turns the combat to more of a strategic top-down setting - imagine a cute version of the Total War series!
The Once upon a time trailer was revealed by Bandai Namco on March 19th, in which the game's two main protagonists and the antagonist appear - with a brief intro into what the game's plot will follow.
