Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom official artwork and logo

While Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is a charming and fairly enjoyable RPG, it's also unfortunately so easy that veteran players will find very little challenge in it. This goes doubly so for players with a penchant for exploration as solving all of the various side-quests will leave you absurdly overpowered for all of the main content.

With that in mind, I am very glad to say that the latest update has brought in some highly requested new difficulty settings: Hard and Expert. As you might expect, the higher you crank up the difficulty, the harder the battles will be. In order to spice things up a bit more, however, the harder difficulty modes will not only increase the drop chance of rare items, but they will also give you access to accessories with two skill rather than the usual one!

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It should give you a pretty decent idea of what to expect from the Hard and Expert modes. Have a peek:
