Ni No Kuni II: Revenant King­dom

Silly name, great game?

Games Master - - Feature -

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.
