Well, this news pleases at least one of us here at the site who has yet to spring for a PlayStation 4.

First announced during the 2015 PlayStation Experience keynote, Bandai Namco said today Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom would also be released for PC through Steam.

There’s a kingdom in the world of Ni No Kuni called Ding Dong Dell, where cats, mice and humans used to live in harmony. But thanks to a coup, the cat and their King Evan were banished.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom recounts the story of Evan, in his journey to “build his own kingdom and unite the whole world.”

Here’s the storyline:

“With him are his faithful friends Roland, Tani and the beings known as Higgledies who come from the power of the heart, a power which is found within people, animals and elements such as fire and water.

“Only those with pure hearts can see them. The Higgledies will lend Evan their support throughout his journey, helping him in battles and letting him reach places he wouldn’t otherwise be able to get to. Follow Evan in his quest, fight powerful monsters, face perilous dungeons and help him to become a King.”

The latest trailer for the game was released during PSX 2016, and if you missed it, give it watch and have a look at the screenshots.

A release date for Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom on PC or Steam wasn’t provided, but both versions are set for a simultaneous release this year.
