Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds trailer introduces the virtual world story

Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds trailer

The latest Ni No Kuni RPGs are some of the best examples of the genre, aided by the masterful art style that only Studio Ghibli can deliver. The thought of an MMORPG set in this appealing world was an enticing one, and luckily that is going to happen with Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds. Developed by Netmarble for Android and iOS with a release in Japan scheduled for 2020, it takes inspiration from the series and the iconic art style, while adding a story twist that could be compared to Sword Art Online. This twist is explained in the new Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds trailer, which you can watch after this post.

Unlike other Ni No Kuni RPGs, Cross Worlds oddly throws in a virtual reality theme into the mix. What this means is that you're not really in a fantasy world; instead, you're just passing by as a tester for a VR game called Soul Divers. But let's check the official blurb to learn more about it:

Don't Miss: Is Genshin Impact an MMORPG, a Co-op RPG, or a Single-Player Game?

“You are a beta tester for the virtual reality game “Soul Divers.” As you progress through the game, you start to notice that the game’s world is real. After meeting a mysterious woman named Rania, you learn your mission. To carry out your mission, you must confront powerful enemies and rebuild the kingdom… Is it possible to save the connected two worlds from ruin?”

The cinematic trailer displays the beautiful art style of the series and shows one character entering the virtual world of Soul Divers. Right before he turns into a stain on the ground, an angel breaks his fall. Cue action scenes, and the Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds trailer ends with our hero returning to reality and once again meeting this mysterious woman. These two are the Swordsman and Witch classes.

At launch, the Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds classes will include the Engineer, Destroyer, Swordsman, Witch, and Rogue. Everything is pointing to gender lock, but let's hope it isn't like that.

We're yet to hear anything about a Ni No Kuni Cross Worlds western release, but Netmarble usually publishes most of its mobile games in North America and Europe, so there's hope.
