In a year packed with unexpected sequels ranging from Nier: Automata to Metroid Prime 4, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom still stands out as a game many fans of the original never thought would become a reality. Now, publisher Bandai Namco has lifted the lid on the title’s season pass.
Three versions of Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom are set to be made available. The standard version of game is being released as the Day One Edition, which packs the complimentary Special Sword Set DLC. Meanwhile, there’ll be a Premium Edition that retails for $79.99 and features a steelbook case, a papercraft kit, an exclusive Dragon’s Tooth DLC sword, and a soundtrack CD.
However, anyone looking to really go all out on the sequel will perhaps want to look into the Collector’s Edition, that’s priced at $199.99. It features all the content from the Premium Edition as well as an art book, a mechanical diorama, a Lofty plush, a making-of Blu-Ray, a display case for the 3D papercraft, and the season pass.
The season pass is priced at $19.99 when sold separately, and for the time being, the details of what it contains are being kept under wraps.
Fans do know that it will grant access to two “large” DLC releases, but there’s no word on what players can expect in terms of their contents. The season pass also offers up a Supply Kit, which is packed full of items that will make it a little easier to get their adventure underway.
Anyone who’s been burned by a season pass that wasn’t worth the money will likely be reticent to make their purchase ahead of time. That being said, there are probably a whole host of Ni No Kuni devotees who are eager to grab the pass simply to ensure that they can access all the content that’s in the works.
There’s always a chance that the DLC that’s locked away behind a season pass won’t be worth the investment. However, given that it’s relatively reasonably priced at $19.99, it shouldn’t be too hard for players to get their money’s worth when it comes to Revenant Kingdom.
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom releases on January 19, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
