I've literally never heard of the game but happy for the franchise to be seeing some big success! Hopefully 3 is on its way and taking a few more inspired risks compared to 2

Didn't realize Ni No Kuni was so big in Japan. I hadn't even heard of this entry.

It isn't. Though this might give the IP some life for future games.
This is an MMO with a 3D anime aesthetic (which is the popular style atm especially after Genshin Impact) , which explains a large part of its current success.

That said, this is neither developed nor published by Level 5.

Very weird franchise, but cool. The second game was so different from the first one. Then there was the movie. Now this. I really hope the next thing is a super ambitious part 3. Exciting where it could go next!

I thought this game was made by Level 5, too.
