While Ni no Kuni II has become one of the most anticipated sequels in PlayStation history. There’s no doubt that the game that’s being developed in collaboration with Studio Ghibli has had fans running to their local game stores ahead of its November 10th released date. There’s been a snag as Bandai Namco and developer Level-5 announced today that their game needs a bit more time, and to make sure it meets fan expectations, they’re pushing it back into 2018.
The video message, which appeared on Bandai Namco US’s Twitter page (you can watch it below) has caused some fans to possibly shed a few tears as their way has extended a bit longer. Akihiro Hino, CEO of Level-5, says that the game will now be releasing the game on January 19, 2018, and that the team behind the game realized that they need more time to deliver the promised experience they have to offer.

While there’s no doubt we here at Blast Away the Game Review are eager to get our hands on the game, it looks like we just need to wait a bit longer, but we know the wait will be worth it.
