The player is a beta tester for a virtual reality fantasy game called "Soul Divers". Once inside, the AI which was suposed to act as a guide for the players, a girl called Rania, breaks the system while trying to warn the player of something. The player then wakes up in an unknown kingdom being attacked. A strange creature named Kuu urges the player to save the queen, but the queen sends them away after gifting them with a magic jewel. The player is then magically teletransported to the Kingdom of Evermore, where they must get strong if they want to save their nameless kingdom, and they begin to realize that that new world might not be a game after all...

Gameplay

Unlike in previous Ni no Kuni games, the player can choose their own class. The appareance and name of said main character are also customizables. There are five classes:

  • Swordman (voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya): He uses a one-handed sword and is good at quick, continuous attacks. He is a gentleman, but also a boy, and he kills his enemies with his brilliant swordplay.
  • Witch (voiced by Kana Hanazawa): A perfectionist wizard who fights gracefully with her magic spear. She has a brilliant mind and can adapt to any situation.
  • Rogue (voiced by Maaya Uchida): A bowman who confuses his enemies with his tricky moves and his archery skills. He is not only a long range attacker, but also a supporter who strengthens his allies.
  • Engineer (voiced by Aoi Yuuki): She is a weapons expert who uses a variety of firearms, including rifles. On the battlefield, she not only attacks the enemy, but also heals her comrades.
  • Destroyer (voiced by Akio Ootsuka): A rugged warrior who can deliver a powerful blow with his huge hammer. He is a reliable companion on the battlefield, attacking his enemies without mercy and rampaging with gusto.
