Here’s something you didn’t expect to hear. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will feature online multiplayer according to CEO and president of Level-5, Akihiro Hino. In a video uploaded by publisher Bandai Namco, he says the following:
Yes, there will be multiplayer. You will be able to play online with your friends in various capacities.
When asked about the game’s story, Hino confirms that this is a separate tale from the original Ni No Kuni. You won’t need to play the original Ni No Kuni to get a grasp on what’s happening though those who have can expect some throwbacks.
One such throwback is the inclusion of returning characters from Wrath of the White Witch. Hino confirmed that some members of the original cast will return but wouldn’t say who, wanting fans to enjoy the surprise.
