Aided by his advisor from another world, Roland, and a ragtag bunch of air pirates, Evan must try and rebuild his kingdom following a deadly coup. He won't fight using familiars as Oliver did, however.
Instead, he'll take the Higgledies into combat. Ni No Kuni 2 has 100 Higgledies to recruit with unique abilities, buffs, and debuffs they can bring to the table.
The called the original Ni No Kuni 2 released in 2018 for PlayStation 4, and we called it at the time a "massive" and "immensely satisfying" game.
