Book Review: The Art of Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM

The Art of Ni no Kuni II: REVENANT KINGDOM - 01


This is a delightful companion video game artbook for the sequel of Ni no Kuni. I like games that use anime and manga style drawings so I really enjoyed this book. That's what I like about Japanese art because they have more variety.

There are many beautiful hand drawn sketches to see in this 152-page hardcover. The pencil and watercolour sketches included reminds me of watercolour concept art of Hayao Miyazaki's films and Katsuya Kondo's art. I can't tell if the artworks are all drawn by animator Yoshiyuki Momose because there's just so many pieces of art. The book has art for the characters, enemies, creatures and environment.

You can get a good idea of what's included from the contents:

  • Main characters
  • Other characters
  • Monsters
  • Kingmakers
  • Villains
  • Higgledies
  • Concept art not used
  • Vehicles
  • Kingdoms
  • Evermore
  • Ding Dong Dell
  • Goldpaw
  • Hydropolis
  • Broadleaf
  • Other places
  • Credit titles artworks

I guess the only downside is there isn't any text to talk about that art. This is just an art-only art book, and it's a great one. Highly recommended to fans of the game or those who like this style of art.
