Well, not in January at least. Yes, the much-anticipated JRPG Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has been delayed. Again.

In order “to offer the highest adventure experience” it has now been pushed back by more than two months, to March 23, 2018.

Here’s a big quote thingy from Akihiro Hino, president & CEO of Level-5, that we’ve cut and pasted in hopes of you understanding the decision better:

“With innovation and new ideas come the need to ensure everything works together in a fun and cohesive package; this means we’ll need a bit more time to make sure the entire Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom experience meets Level-5 and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.’s high quality standards. So today, I would like to ask for everyone’s patience as we move Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom’s worldwide release date to March 23, 2018 for the PlayStation 4 and PC. We will be sharing more news about Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to our new launch date. On behalf of everyone at Level-5, I want to thank you all for your patience and continued support.”

It was one of only a handful of big January releases, so we’ll just have to entertain ourselves instead with AO Tennis, DragonBall FighterZ or Monster Hunter: World. Life could be worse.
