On March 19, players of Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom will be able to discover more about Evan and his friends with The Tale of a Timeless Tome update. This new episode will add new memories, locations, characters, and fighting methods to the game.
The Tale of a Timeless Tome begins when Evan and his friends learn of a rumor about a tuxedo-wearing rabbit hanging out in people’s dreams. To investigate this mystery, Even heads to the Goldpaw Inn to stay the night. Upon falling asleep, he enters a dream world where he encounters the mysterious rabbit, otherwise known as “the conductor.”
Nothing is known of this new character, and Evan must discover who he really is and what he wants. After all, no one invades people’s dreams for no reason.
In addition to expanding the game’s story, Tale of a Timeless Tome will also add new Methods, allowing players to customize their combat style in Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom. One of these Methods, “Wizard’s Companion,” is a callback to Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and it should be pretty familiar to anyone who’s played that game.
Also included in the update is a new battle arena where players can challenge strong enemies. Players who are successful in combat in the Solosseum Slog, as the arena is named, will walk away with new reward items. What these items are has not been detailed.
Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom players on both PlayStation 4 and PC will be able to purchase The Tale of a Timeless Tome DLC when it launches on March 19 for $14.99. At present, there does not appear to be a pre-order option. However, those who already purchased the Season Pass will receive the update for free when it releases.
More details on The Tale of a Timeless Tome can be found on the PlayStation blog.
