ni no kuni ii difficulty

When it launched earlier in the year, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was criticised by many for being a tad too easy. Indeed, only a select few battles offered any real threat to players who were at least familiar with typical action titles.

Although it seems a little late, Bandai Namco has addressed the complaint with the game's latest patch on PlayStation 4. Update 1.03 is out now, and it adds two new difficulty levels to the title, both of them boasting a tougher challenge. Hard mode notches up the difficulty a decent amount, while Expert mode makes combat much more demanding, with enemy attacks dealing a lot more damage.

The payoff is that if you decide to play on one of these new difficulties, you'll get rarer loot drops, including accessories that can come with an extra skill slot.
