Studio-Ghibli-movie-packed-into-a-video-game JRPG Ni No Kuni II: Revenant’s Kingdom has received a free DLC titled the Adventure Pack. Fans can dive right back into the action as protagonist Evan as he faces off against two new enemies to save Ni No Kuni from catastrophe: the winged shive-esque Zeta the Mischievous Mistress of Vast Disasters and Blackhart The Awakened, a fifteen-foot tall dragon with antlers.
As you’d expect from a DLC worthy of the name, the Adventure Pack features fresh pickings of items and costumes, with what appears to be a fully decked out evening suit for Evan. Classy. As with the base game, complete quests (of which the Adventure pack adds a whole bunch) and dungeons to acquire the new skins. Geographically, the pack adds extra floors to the Faraway Forest Cave dungeon, while the story itself spans the entire Ni No Kuni II world.
The pack is geared towards veteran players who don’t want to leave the whimsical world of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant’s Kindgom, yet have completed everything there is to do in the base game. The Adventure Pack acts very much as a stopgap until further paid DLC content is released later this year, which should include new dungeons, and an expansion with brand new in-depth story line scheduled for next year. As it stands Bandai Namco are planning to release three DLCs in total, Adventure Pack being the first.
The Adventure Pack is absolutely free over on Steam though you’ll of course need the base game to play. In anticipation of upcoming content, you can also purchase the Season Pass which will set you in good stead when the other DLCs arrive.
