I myself have had my fill of long winded Japanese RPG’s this year. I’ve recently sunk 125 hours in Persona 5 over the last two months, and although I haven’t played it myself, I have watched the games press salivate continuously over the marvels of Breath of the Wild. But perhaps unlike me, you are hungry for more. Well, you won’t find a JRPG on the horizon, with a higher chance of guaranteed quality, than Ni No Kuni 2: The Revenant Kingdom.
And recently we received news, via Twitter, concerning the various versions of the game that will release at launch. However these special editions will vary depending on your geographical location, so pay close attention.
For those of you in Europe, you can get your hands on either the Prince’s Edition or the King’s edition. The Prince’s Edition will seemingly ship with a physical copy of the game, a steel book case, a DVD which highlights the development process behind the game and the game’s season pass. However, neither developer Level 5 or Bandai Namco have informed the public of what the season pass will include. This will set you back £84.99.
The King’s Edition, which contains all the contents of the Prince’s Edition, also includes a vinyl record, 148 page art book, and 20 cm tall music box, which plays Ni No Kuni 2’s main theme music. This version will cost you £139.99.
Alternatively, in the US you can pick up either the Premium Edition or the Collector’s Edition of Ni No Kuni 2. The Premium Edition will include the game, a steel book case, a 3D papercraft kit, music collection CD, and exclusive DLC sword, Dragon’s Tooth. You can get all of this for the price of $74.99 USD, but will, unfortunately, have to purchase the season pass separately.
For a minor $199.99 USD, the Collector’s Edition of Ni No Kuni 2 will get you everything in the Premium Edition plus an art book, a “Chibi Mechanical Rotating Diorama”, a Lofty plush toy, a making-of Blu-ray, a 3D papercraft display case, and the season pass.
Ni No Kuni 2: The Revenant Kingdom was originally scheduled to release in November of this year, but was pushed back to January 19th, 2018. Probably a safe bet, getting out of the way of all the clutter releasing this fall. For everything on Ni No Kuni 2, stay tuned to Thenerdstash.com.
