Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is coming this week, marking another sumptuous RPG from Level-5. Like the first game, there’s no shortage of things to do in this Ghibli-inspired adventure, and role-playing games are known for their lengthy playtimes. Now we have a better idea of just how much time you’ll put into this trip through Ding Dong Dell.
Our Ni No Kuni 2 review said the game lasted roughly 35 hours, which included a handful of hours devoted solely to developing the kingdom. 100% completion could be roughly double at 70 hours.
It should be noted that while you have some freedom to pick and choose which quests you do and when, they aren’t entirely optional. Elements like skirmishes and kingdom building are treated as open-ended but you need to do some of each to level up high enough to access the end-game.
Our review found it charming, with a great soundtrack and a demanding combat system, but we lamented an overreliance on fetch quests and underdeveloped secondary characters. It will be available on PC and PlayStation 4 on March 23.
