Ni no Kuni Gets Smartphone Game
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
South Korean game company Netmarble announced last Friday that it is developing a smartphone game based on Level 5's Ni no Kuni game series. The game will retain the series' signature animated aesthetic.
Gameplay will revolve around a player-based community called a "kingdom," that will allow players to cooperate, compete, and establish guilds. Players can also gather spirits known as "Imazen" to train them as they adventure.
Level 5 debuted the fantasy role-playing game Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PlayStation 3 in Japan in 2011, after a Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madōshi game for Nintendo DS in 2010 and a game for Japanese phones. Namco Bandai Games then released Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch outside Japan in 2013. The RPG features cut scenes from Studio Ghibli.
A remastered version of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch launched for PlayStation 4 and PC on September 20, and the original Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch game's Switch version launched on the same day.
Level 5 released the Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom PS4 and PC game in March 2018.
