A new Ni Ni Kuni game, Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds, is coming to PC and mobile on May 25.
Pre-registration for the English version of the free-to-play, gacha-infused action RPG has been open for some time, and you can still sign up via its official website. Pre-registering gets you an explorer outfit, and signing up for the game’s Discord unlocks a fat cat you can wear on your head, which is a pretty good sales pitch.
Soul Divers! The wait is finally over, Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds will be available May 25th 2022! Pre-register now: https://t.co/6MtnZaImQHJoin our Discord: https://t.co/etHXMhjxra#NinoKuni #Anime #RPG #Games #Ghibli pic.twitter.com/xUAHSTB3ndMay 11, 2022
Where Ni No Kuni 2 abruptly whisked a citizen from our world to another realm, Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds sees chosen Soul Divers voluntarily enter a fantasy world to do… something. There’s evil afoot, that’s for sure, and you can fight it off with one of five classes after customizing your character – another break from Ni No Kuni tradition.
Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds looks as lovely as the rest of the series, which is mighty impressive for a game designed to run on phones. More importantly, it revisits the delightful kingdom-building system established in Ni No Kuni 2. It is trimmed down here, but you’ve still got a range of features and tweaks available to you. Looks like there’s large-scale inter-kingdom PvP, too, with guilds and leaders fighting to control capitals.
The gacha side of the game comes into play with the collectible familiars that fill out your party’s bonuses. You can also use familiars to play the board game-esque Familiar Adventure to collect resources, so they’re pretty important to have.
