Not the charmer its predecessor was, but a jolly 40 hour epic with dashing combat and an engrossing empire-building subgame.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom distinguishes itself from its predecessor by layering fast-paced, real-time combat and an engaging kingdom building system atop more traditional RPG systems and quests. It's a shame it delivers so few truly memorable characters and restricts so much of its storytelling to text on screen, but by the end of Ni No Kuni 2 the broader themes certainly resonate and the 40+ hour journey has been well worth it.

Without Evermore, Ni No Kuni 2 would have been good. Because of it, it's one of the best JRPGs on PC.

A Japanese role-player that everyone can enjoy, and which mixes old school influences and some interesting innovations to charming effect.
