That headline may come as a surprise to some considering the Ni no Kuni franchise has mostly been about exploring a very Studio Ghibli-esque world in a single-player JRPG format. Nevertheless, Netmarble has officially announced a mobile MMORPG based on the series and, personally, I will be let down if Drippy the fairy isn’t there.
Information on this new mobile MMO is thin right now, but reports indicate that multiplayer will be focused on Kingdoms, which allow players to cooperate and compete with other guilds for some unstated purpose. Players will also be able to collect and train spirits known as Imazen to join them on their journey.
More details are expected to be announced at this year’s G-Star event, though prospects of this game’s arrival to the West are probably threadbare at best. Still, there’s always the single-player games and its awesome soundtrack for us to enjoy.
