Level-5 has updated the official Japanese website for Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom with new screenshots and information on the water country of Thalassea, the port town of Capstan Upon Hull, a new Kingmaker named Brineskimmer, Kingdom Mode, and skirmishes.
Get the information below.
Thalassea, a water country ruled by the beautiful Queen Homedias. It is said to be a country of strict law enforcement and control, and whose people are constantly monitored by the “Eye of the Queen” that projects from the sea.
“The prosperity of this kingdom is a result of the power of Her Majesty the Queen.”
A close associate of Queen Homedias of Thalassea. He is frighteningly sharp, but is no match for the Queen, who ends up stomping on him with high heels. He is cold enough to make extremely “strategic” judgments.
“Why would the populace gather for an inexperience man like yourself?
The beautiful queen that rules over Thalassea. She keeps the people in order with various strict laws, but keeps the country at peace through the skills of Leander. There is a major secret known only by the Queen and Leander, which is connected to the reason she imposes such strict laws.
Capstan Upon Hull
Capstan Upon Hull is a small port town that makes a living off the shipbuilding business. There seem to be skilled shipbuilders here. However, the town has few people and an unusual atmosphere. It seems that some sort of accident occurred here.
“The ‘Divine Boddly National Archive’ does not allow first time customers. Please go home.”
Age unknown. Director of the Goldpaw National Archives. As someone who has been handed down the history of Ni no Kuni, she is said to be a living history book, and tells Evan and company of “The Legend of Brahavan.”
Brineskimmer, a Kingmaker
The Kingmaker of Thalassea. At the bottom of the sea, there is a king’s cradle that rarely manifests. Brineskimmer can swim around freely in the sea, and specializes in water and ice attacks. It is accompanied by a servant called “Odis, the Sea God,” who also possesses great power.
