Rumor: Ni No Kuni 2 Coming To Xbox One

IGN Spain is reporting on a rumor that Ni No Kuni 2, the gorgeous RPG from Level-5, will be coming to the Xbox One.

The report follows up a store listing for the game on Xbox One, which was dismissed as a mistake. According to the IGN report, however, the game is going to come out on Microsoft's console in the west, albeit only digitally.

It would be one of the first major coups for the console, as they have had a tough time getting ports of Japanese games, with some publishers of those games saying Microsoft does not support them. If the rumor is correct and Ni No Kuni 2 is coming to the system digitally, that would solve the issue NISA has brought up about minimum print runs, and also might explain why the game would be digital only. Historically, splits of JRPG sales between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One do not favor the Xbox.

If the game is coming to Xbox One, Xbox One X enhancements might also be possible.

Check out our latest preview for Ni No Kuni 2 from Tokyo Game Show last month. At the moment, Ni No Kuni 2 is scheduled for PlayStation 4 and PC on January 19.
