Warning: There are minor spoilers ahead that detail the origins of each playable character in Ni No Kuni 2.
Just as in the first game, Ni No Kuni 2’s story details the plight of a young boy in his bid to overthrow evil. But he won’t be doing it alone. As Evan unites the four kingdoms of Ni No Kuni, he’ll meet new friends and forge new alliances along the way, and many of these characters are playable. Right from the off, players are able to control Roland – a stranger from our own world, warped to Ni No Kuni in strange circumstances.
