The highly anticipated Ni No Kuni 2, a new gem of Level-5 that is set for release on PlayStation 4 and PC, gets yet another delay. As the publisher, Bandai Namco announced, the new release date is March 23, 2018.

The CEO of Level-5, Akihiro Hino, issued the following statement: " As you all know Level-5 is committed to delivering the highest levels of design and quality in each of our video game titles. The development of our latest project Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is coming along very well and we can't wait to share this new adventure with you our fans. In an effort to constantly innovate and bring new experiences to players, we've also implemented new modes in Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom including the new Skirmish and Kingdom Modes which will surly delight players. However 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 23rd March, 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 ".

Although we do believe that the team needs more time in order to create the best possible product, delaying the game so much does give us a sense of skepticism. It isn't the first time that Ni No Kuni II is delayed - the game was initially supposed to be released back in November this year, only to be postponed for January 2018 and now, March 2018. But, let's hope that the final game will be really worth playing and worth the hype that surrounds it as well. The previous entries of the franchise have all been commercially successful so it only comes logical that Revenant Kingdoms continues that tradition.

Let's remind ourselves of the official PS4 trailer from Gamescom:

And let's also take a look at the newest trailer that introduces the Japanese voice cast (the English subtitles are there as well, no worries):

We have high exceptions and we can't wait to finally taste this game. But, please, Level-5 and Bandai Namco....don't make us wait yet again!
