    I just received an email from Best Buy. They said that there has been a release date change on Ni No Kuni II and that it is delayed until March 9th. I looked online and could not find anything to corroborate this.


    Best Buy has sent another email changing the release date back to 1/19/17. It was probably an error on their part and unless there is word from the publisher, we should probably assume the game is coming out on time.

    It does still say June 30th on PSN, however.

    Yup I just got the same one.

    It was a week apart from Monster Hunter World and a few other japanese games, they might be moving away from them.

    January is packed so it'd be a good move tbh.

    Makes sense with MHW and DBZ coming out the next week.

    That's disappointing.

    It’d be the smart thing.

    I thought the same thing with the initial delay that put it to January. Game can't seem to catch a break.

    Let it be. Polish it up, Ni no Kuni I was awful and I'm putting a lot of hope into II.

    I am so bummed.

    Next year is so stacked though. It'll give me time to get to it

    I don't mind, I need some space between games I will me finishing up plus I have Monster Hunter by then.

    It's not a bad thing, especially since I would have definitely went for MHW first, if that release is real and not near God of War, I'll buy it day one.

    It's probably for the best.

    Awful seems a bit of a stretch.

    Yep. November 10th, actually. Which is also a Friday. So I am thinking that the March 9th date is accurate. Would be good to see an official announcement on the matter though.

    What didn't you enjoy? The battle system AI is the only thing I can think of but you can work around it. Personally I loved Ni No Kuni

    I'll actually be revealed if it does, since Monster Hunter World and Fighter Z are both around late January.

    A tad disappointing, but a understandable and prudent move.

    It was quite obviously going to suffer in the January crunch.

    Bad would be a stretch tbh

    I am completely fine with this, with Xenoblade 2 next month and my backlog overlfowing anyway.
    It will be a great game that deserves a decent amount of time to focus on.
  28. CrazyHal

    CrazyHal Member

    That was true back then but not anymore what with patches and updates.
  29. Jencks

    Jencks Member

    That's fine, I guess. I'll probably be busy with Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus shortly after.

    Damn, I got digital deluxe edition preordered on PS store, but of course its been saying June 30th. That kind of bums me out, but ill have Lost Sphear and Secret of Mana to hold me over. I was never into MH games, so ill see what this beta is like first before i think about a MHW preorder.

    Isn't this a good thing?

    There's no way I'll buy this in January when MHW is releasing in the same month.
  35. Jencks

    Jencks Member

    Yup. Would have released this Friday.

    I don’t mind.

    Dang, but if it means more polish than I'm alright with it.
  38. kodax_shc

    kodax_shc Member

    Agreed. It had problems but it was at the very least good.
  39. #39
    Oh, you're right. I almost forgot that those were still exist.

    This would kind of be a blessing in disguise for me. Still have a huge backlog to get through.

    Ah man.... Better late then never I guess.

    I say it's a good move. It's all about Monster Hunter World in January
  44. WillySJ3

    WillySJ3 Member

    Yes please, take your time, don't rush it. Too many games for January 2018 anyway.
  45. Mengetsu

    Mengetsu Member

    With January stacked this would be smart. Monster Hunter is going to shut everything down anyway. Me and my friends are going sink so much time into it.
  46. Nocchi

    Nocchi Member


    Even though January is still 2 months away, I'm totally okay with this getting delayed because I need more time to play the games I got lol
  47. M.Steiner

    M.Steiner Member

    Damn, was really itching to play this soon too.

    Not to worry I guess, if it makes for a better game in the long run I don't mind having to wait a bit longer.

    Understandable. Still disappointing.
  49. Kuni

    Kuni Member

    Yeah this. Would be quite the relief along with Shadow of the Colossus coming out in early Feb.

    March isn't exactly a better date with Yakuza 6 coming and possibly god of war coming. There's also a numerous amount of games that still just have "spring 2018" dates and could fall there too.

    We're getting to the point where unless you're willing to launch in June or July you're going to just have to suck it up and release your game. You can't dodge everything anymore.
