Yesterday, Bandai Namco revealed all the pre-order goodies and assorted versions of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom that will be available for its January 19th launch, alongside a dreaded season pass. But that wasn't all because they also revealed the official PC system requirements for Ni No Kuni 2.

Ni No Kuni II Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Radeon R7 260X
  • HDD: 40GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

Ni No Kuni II Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290
  • HDD: 40GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

For fans of Ni No Kuni 2's Ghibli-esque cel-shaded art-style, the sequel is looking absolutely drool-worthy. It's rare that so much care is lavished on cartoon visuals and animations, but it promises to be a gorgeous adventure. This has filtered through to the PC system requirements, which are much more demanding than your usual Tales of or Atelier fare. 

It's a bit of a weird comparison to make, but they're actually pretty similar to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's system requirements, albeit a little more demanding at the minimum in terms of CPU. You'll be needing a decent quad-core processor to play Ni No Kuni II on PC, along with a graphics card with at least 2GB VRAM. The 4GB RAM requirement is pretty reasonable though, and there's a token 40GB install which is the norm these days. The minimum specs for Ni No Kuni 2 will be enough to play it at 720p and hit 30 frames per second.

Ni No Kuni 2's recommended PC requirements are pretty much bang in line with what we expect from a AAA title. Those wanting to play at 1080p on High, at 60fps, will be needing a video card with at least 3GB VRAM. On the Nvidia front, a GeForce GTX 970 will be fine, while AMD owners are best off with a Radeon R9 290. It may still be possible to hit 60fps with a 3GB Radeon R9 280X though.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Ni No Kuni II System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Ni No Kuni II GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Ni No Kuni 2 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

It looks brilliant, maybe if we wish hard enough the first game will come to steam too. These days, I can only muster myself to play Japanese games for any elongated period of time. It's crazy because I normally can not stand hammy or cheesy stories, predictable character progression, mundane combat, etc. but I'll be damned if Yakuza 4,5,0, Persona 3,4,5, and Gravity Rush 2 haven't changed my damn mind. For about 4 years I couldn't stand Japanese anything except for the classic Final Fantasy games, Legend of Dragoon (which I still play annually), and the bulk of the Nintendo library. (huh, kind of contradicted what I said there...) Back on Ni No Kuni, really excited to give it a go!
