Ni No Kuni II may be delayed to March 9th, 2018.

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.

UPDATE:

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.

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

I am so bummed.

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

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.

A tad disappointing, but a understandable and prudent move.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
