Ni no Kuni II is a role-playing game developed by Japanese studio Level-5 and published by Bandai Namco. While set in the same world as the award-winning Wrath of the White Witch, it takes place during a different time period, and follows an entirely new cast of characters.

The game’s protagonist is a young cat-eared prince named Evan, who becomes king after his father’s abrupt passing, but is immediately ousted from the position by the nefarious royal adviser, Otto Mausinger. Barely escaping with his life, Evan embarks on a quest to reclaim his kingdom, with some help from a band of sky pirates and a visitor from another world.
