A very nice exclusive to the PlayStation 4 will arrive very soon on the Nintendo Switch. It is Ni no Kuni 2 Revenant Kingdom, an RPG developed by the Japanese studio Level 5 with the help of the famous animation studio Ghibli. The name of the game appeared in a database in the United States.
Is the Nintendo Switch actually a PlayStation 4? Several games released exclusively on the old Sony console are increasingly coming to Nintendo’s hybrid platform. It will soon be the case of Ni no Kuni 2 Revenant Kingdom, released in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and recently discovered in the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) database, an American games and software rating organization (equivalent to the European PEGI).

In 2011, one of the pearls of the Japanese RPG of the time was released on PlayStation 3. It’s called Ni no Kuni: Wrath of White Witch. It was developed by the studio Level 5 to whom we owe in particular the series Professor Layton, Inazuma Eleven, Yo-Kai Watch or White Knight Chronicles. This is a cell-shaded RPG where part of the gameplay is very Pokemon inspired.
Ni no Kuni: a Ghibli film transformed into a Japanese role-playing game
To create the graphic universe of the Ni no Kuni series, Level 5 has partnered with studio Ghibli (which it is certainly unnecessary to present) which has developed a bestiary and very endearing characters. With this very special visual signature. The game was then accompanied by another opus, dedicated to the Nintendo DS. This has remained unprecedented in Europe.
Seven years later, in 2018, Level 5 and Ghibli put the cover back with a third game called Ni no Kuni: Revenant Kingdom. Output exclusive to PlayStation 4 on console (since the game was also released on PC). New main characters. New monsters to collect. An excellent sequel to this series, the trailer of which you can find at the end of this article.
In 2019, Bandai Namco, publisher of the series since its inception, and Level 5 bring the first opus to Switch. The arrival of its sequel on Nintendo’s hybrid console is therefore very logical. It remains to be seen if it will be a simple port or if this version will benefit from some changes (in terms of gameplay or content). But it should not be long before we quickly know the answer to this question.
