Netmarble teamed up with Level-5 to bring Ni no Kuni to mobile devices, complete with the lovely cel-shaded graphics, cutscenes, and songs that are a staple of the RPG series.

Don't Miss: Ragnarok Crusade: Midgard Chronicles MMORPG is a side-scrolling PC

The Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds MMORPG features a real-time hack and slash combat system, five character classes at launch (Witch, Swordman, Rogue, Engineer, and Destroyer), PvE and PvP, along with over 100 familiars to support you in battle with their unique skills.

You can develop your kingdom along with your guild members, using the resources that you acquire during your adventure to enhance it. You can construct buildings and level them up, always on control of the kingdom's appearance.

There is a nice feature where you can move objects around across the land. One example of this is carrying tons of lambs to your kingdom to make it thrive, with the option to steal other players' lambs. Sounds like a legit business opportunity if I've ever seen one.
