Bloody hell, we've just been hit with a tidal wave of Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom information, so forgive us if we're still trying to gather our thoughts in this article. For starters, let's go over what a lot of people have been asking about: the combat system. Going by what we've seen of the game so far, it's safe to say that battles have taken a turn towards real-time action, and it's been confirmed today that they are indeed action-based - semi-turn based elements of the first game are no more. You'll have full control over your chosen character's movement, and each party member has access to different special attacks. You'll also be able to enlist the help of small creatures known as Higgledies, which can swarm your foes.
Next up, it's been revealed that the title's still on track for a 2017 launch; it'll be releasing worldwide at some point later this year, so the West thankfully won't have to wait. And, last but not least, we've been peppered with a handful of screenshots, which we've embedded here for your perusal. Needless to say, the game's still looking incredibly good - that art style is just gorgeous, isn't it?
