When Bandai Namco released Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom back in March, it came with a season pass that promised future content at a later date. There was just one issue with this though: that date was never detailed, leaving a some fans fearing it was forgotten entirely.
Now, four months later, Bandai Namco has finally put those fears to rest, providing release windows and descriptions of each Season Pass DLC.
The first Season Pass DLC will arrive this Winter which will introduce a brand-new, enigmatic dungeon for players to explore. Enemies will become progressively more difficult the deeper down you go, but, according to the announcement, the reward for braving these unknown depths will be “worth it.”
Afterwards, the second Season Pass DLC is poised to arrive in early 2019, bringing with it a story expansion for the base game that will reportedly be filled with “exciting content.” Unfortunately, the details about this are unknown (maybe an after story?), but Bandai Namco said it will share more information at a later date.
At this point, I’m sure you’re probably asking yourself what will you do while waiting for the Season Pass DLC (other than playing something else). Well, no worries, Bandai Namco has got you covered. Coming Aug. 9 is a free update called the Adventure Pack which provide “new challenges for experienced players.” Specifically, it will add additional floors to the Faraway Forest cave, providing the party with new costumes upon completion; as well as two new bosses — Blackhart and Zeta — and some new quests after the main campaign is complete.
All in all, these look like fantastic updates; and while some might argue that such updates might have come too late, these will no doubt be seen as a reward who were patient and stuck with the game following its initial release.
Truly, between the increased difficulty and this upcoming content, Ni no Kuni 2 is going to look like a considerably different game come Spring 2019. All that’s left now is to wait.
