If you were hoping to get your hands on Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom this year, some bad news. The upcoming JRPG has been delayed by two months. The game is now slated for a January 19, 2018 launch.
CEO and president of developer Level-5, Akihiro Hino, issued the following statement:
We have decided that more development time is required in order to deliver the full Ni no Kuni II experience to our fans. I deeply apologise to those who have been looking forward to the game's release. Please rest assured, however, that we will continue to strive to provide a deep and satisfying single player experience that our fans can look forward to enjoying.
He also clarified that the game won’t have multiplayer content – despite an interview at E3 indicating the contrary.
