Second Major Ni no Kuni II DLC Arriving in March

Published

Ni no Kuni

Update: Ni no Kuni II‘s new DLC has been confirmed for a simultaneous worldwide release, though it will be called ‘The Tale of a Timeless Tome’ in English-speaking countries.

Players will gain access to the new content after staying a night at the Goldpond Inn. Alongside the new story content, it will expand on the available battle methods by adding in “Martha’s Method” and the “Wizard’s Companion,” as well as including a new battle location called the Solosseum Slog

Original Story: An update to Ni no Kuni II‘s home page has provided the first details on the JRPG’s second major DLC drop.

Set to arrive on March 19 and called ‘Wizard’s Book’ (according to a Google translation), the new episode will reveal the “‘devil'” that drives the king crazy. That synopsis provides few details, but access to the DLC will be enabled from the beginning of Chapter 5 from the main game.

Evan’s guide throughout the game will be The Conductor, who provided post-game content in the original Ni no Kuni.

Screenshots of the update also hint that Evan will visit the home of the first game’s protagonist Oliver at some point in the DLC.

Whether this new content will receive a simultaneous worldwide release is not yet certain, as Bandai Namco has not yet made any announcements in English.

‘Wizard’s Book’ follows the earlier ‘The Lair of the Lost Lord’ DLC, which introduced a labyrinth with additional quests and items. The new DLC will also expand on that earlier content, adding new battlefields and rewards.

OnlySP’s review of Ni no Kuni II scored it as a Distinction, calling it “an incredibly powerful title that has the potential to appeal to people from all walks of life.”

DOOM Eternal Gets Nightmarish Concept Art

Published

Doom Eternal

Bethesda has been pretty quiet about DOOM Eternal the past few months, but the company has reminded onlookers of the project’s stellar design via a piece of concept art.

Entitled ‘Hell Gate’, the concept art details Hell’s equivalent of royalist architecture, complete with DOOM (2016)’s penchant for contrasting colours and strong, angular geometry. The centrepiece of the art is the beloved Doomguy, whose heavy frame looks pretty small compared to the scale.

The art was shared directly on the game’s Twitter page, embedded below:

DOOM Eternal has no release date as of yet, but expect id Software to share more about the game at Bethesda’s E3 conference.
