Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
Silly name, great game?
Nefarious being intent on seizing the throne? Monumental quasimedieval battles? A sprawling storyline? Bizarre place names? Nope, it’s not Game Of Thrones, it’s Ni No Kuni II. There’s less chance of characters ending up with their heads on spikes here, though. The aggressively colourful Studio Ghibli-esque visuals are a stark (heh) contrast to Game Of Thrones’ dark and grimy realism, but some of that magic is retained in the historical conniving and epic scale, though it’s yet to be seen if it can be as equally gripping. Book plenty of time into your 2017 planner, because this one’s going to suck up a load of hours, when it finally drops.
