Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be bringing whimsical fantasy and gorgeous graphics to PlayStation 4 this year, a Bandai Namco press release has confirmed ahead of time. Snapped by Kotaku's Jason Schreier, the text has the Japanese role-playing title pegged for a 10th November 2017 date. Nice.

While the game has always been slated to launch this year, there's definitely been speculation over whether it would actually hit its 2017 target. We certainly had our doubts as well - we're so used to delays these days that we thought it would inevitably be pushed into 2018. Not the case, it seems.

We imagine this date will be officially confirmed later today - possibly during Sony's press conference. Are you happy about this news? Celebrate in the comments section below.
