Known as one of the best JRPG or Japanese-RPG games this year, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom delivers a beautiful story of a fallen king and his son's journey to the throne. Take part in epic battles and defend your father's honor in this quirky, yet spectacular game.
If there is one thing common in all JRPG games, it has to be the stellar graphics and Ni No Kuni II doesn't disappoint. From the different locations to the battlefronts and even the characters themselves, this game screams perfection. There are bright colors, vibrant surroundings, and very realistic movement everywhere you look. Although the characters do not mimic human features, they do deliver exactly what they are meant to represent - anime.
The game starts in a kingdom called Ding Dong Dell that is inhabited by a half cat-half human race called Grymalkins. You take on the character of Evan - son of the murdered king. You must build an army of your own in your new kingdom Evermore and find your way back to your rightful throne, which is now taken over by a mice coup. On your journey back home, you will encounter monsters, puzzles, and tricky riddles. You and your team must overcome all the obstacles to succeed, including some of the most outrageous boss battles ever seen. Every member in your team has specialized skills that can be used at any time to help defeat the bad guys, but you can only fight with 3 characters at a time. You will have to learn and understand the individual powers your team members possess and use them correctly. The game is quite challenging, but with excellent 2D and 3D graphics, you are totally immersed in its beauty and splendor.
The Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom game is a PC game which essentially means that you will require a mouse and keyboard in order to play the game. You can also attach a compatible controller to make your gaming experience better. Movement is handled by the arrow keys, D-Pad, or any other keys that you wish to customize. Using items or attacking the monsters with your weapons also can be controlled through the customizable button, but is usually done with the help of the mouse.
