Ni No Kuni II just got hard and even harder

Technically it's called 'expert,' not 'even harder'

Ding Dong Dell just got a little more dangerous. Developer Level-5 has finally implemented the long-awaited difficulty settings to Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.

Nearly three months to the day since its March release, Ni no Kuni II gets its third major update. It mainly focuses on adding Hard and Expert settings. Difficulty can be changed at anytime, and playing on the tougher settings results in rarer loot drops. Risk/reward and all that.

Here are the full Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom update 1.03 patch notes:

  • New difficulty modes added: Hard and Expert. You can choose how hard you want your challenge to be when you select "New Game" from the title screen, or by entering the in-game options menu at any time. Three difficulty levels are available: Normal, Hard, and Expert. The higher the setting, the harder the battles will be, but this will be offset by rarer treasures from monsters, from the chests in the Faraway Forest, and certain other places. You'll also be able to access the true potential of accessories, with monsters occasionally dropping ones with two skills! (This won't affect any you already own.)
    • Maximum quality level of equipment drops expanded (in Hard or higher).
    • Chances of rare item drops increased (in Hard or higher).
  • New equipment skills added.
  • Rare accessories with second skill slot added.
  • Various other game balance issues and minor bugs have also been addressed.
    • A bug that allowed the airship to land in places where it should not be able to land has been fixed.
    • Steam version only: A bug that made the player unable to control the camera at specific screen resolutions has been fixed.
