Bandai Namco America has released a new gameplay video of the upcoming Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, showcasing the battle gameplay in different stages of the game, including army battles and dungeons. The video shows two parts of the demo, named The Battle for the Heartlands and One Good Turn Deserves Another.
Fans will be particularly excited to watch the first stage, as army battle gameplay has not be shown as much as the regular fights. We see the protagonist Evan going to war along with two squads of soldiers, one that uses swords and other that uses bows for long range attacks. This kind of battles will be essential to recover the land of our kingdom through the game.
Here is the official synopsis of each stage:
- The Battle for the Heartlands: Evan has overcome the trials of the king’s cradle and forged a bond with a kingmaker. Now all he needs is a kingdom to rule. He begins to make his way to the uninhabited territory of the Heartlands in the hopes of establishing his realm there, but finds the path blocked by a swarm of bloodthirsty bandits. There’s only one way through—to arms!
- One Good Turn Deserves Another: Determined to prove his right to rule, Evan is on his way to take a trial at the king’s cradle when both he and Roland are captured by sky pirates. Just when it seems certain they will be put to death, a young girl named Tani swoops in to grant them a stay of execution. Soon after, our heroes are taken to the sky pirates’ base, where their fate will be decided by Batu, the leader of this bloodthirsty band.
