Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom has had a difficulty problem. Our own review talked about how the side quests only served to make an already easy game even easier. People use cheat-enabling software on the PC to make the enemies more difficult to wring out some challenge from the game. It turns out, Bandai Namco has heard you. 

In a patch that's out now, Ni no Kuni II has added two harder difficulties for new games, Hard and Expert. Obviously Expert is for the hardest challenge currently available. The patch also has some bug fixes and rare items.

Playing on harder difficulties also increases your drop rate for rare items, so it has benefits beyond fixing what is commonly called out as the game's biggest flaw. The patch is out now for PlayStation 4 and PC.
