It looks like Bandai Namco and Level-5’s upcoming adventure RPG, Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom, will not sport Denuvo when its PC version launches on Steam. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom is slated to debut across PC and PS4 on march 23rd, 2018.
If you happen to be against the implementation of Denuvo or DRM and can’t stand it being attached to your favorite games, especially if you like adventure RPGs, there’s good news for you in that the devs will not use Denuvo in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom.
The information about the above news comes from publication site DSOG, which said site picked up from Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom’s Steam store page. Furthermore, the site claims that the EULA and Steam page make no mention of the tech, meaning that the game is free of Denuvo.
The act of not having Denuvo active and looming around while the game is running is quite a surprise, especially when we take into account that Bandai Namco released some recent titles with it like Dragon Ball FighterZ.
It’s unclear if Bandai Namco and Level-5 are looking to see how people will react to no DRM in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom or if there’s more to the story?
Although there’s no rhyme or reason as to why it, Denuvo, won’t be included in Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom, fans shouldn’t be ebbed the wrong way given that it’s a consumer friendly move by both Bandai Namco and Level-5.
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is set to launch next month in March and will debut on the same day for PC and PS4 on the 23rd.
