I have been waiting for Ni no Kuni Cross Worlds to release since it was announced all the way back in 2019. After a pre-registration period, story trailer, and more information about the title, Level5 and NetMarble have announced that the game is going to be hitting iOS and Android devices starting on 10 June 2021.
Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds is an expansive RPG being developed by Level-5 and Netmarble for mobile devices. They have outlined the story for the game as follows:
The protagonist is a beta tester for ‘Project N,’ a virtual reality game developed by Mirai Company, a major corporation in the world of ‘Ichi no Kuni.’ The protagonist was chosen out of hundreds of applicants…
The game world of ‘Project N’ is a fantasy world called ‘Ni no Kuni.’ The protagonist begins a battle against an army of monsters led by ‘Levant,’ who attacked the ‘Nameless Kingdom.’
The protagonist fights the monster army alongside Shia, the queen of the kingdom, but Levant’s unreasonable power leads Queen Shia to open a dimensional rift for the protagonist and a fairy named Kuu to escape.
The protagonist and Kuu emerge somewhere around the kingdom of Evermore, and set off on an adventure to rebuild the Nameless Kingdom and save Queen Shia.
Without yet knowing the truth, this is a parallel world where the world of ‘Ni no Kuni’ exists…
Level5 and NetMarble have yet to announce when the title will be getting an international release, if at all. The series kinda started to fade away into ambiguity after the first installment, so let’s hope that this new mobile title can rekindle the fire.
