However, Ex-Ghibli employee Yoshiyuki Momose (Character Designer) and Joe Hisaishi (Music Composer) have joined Level-5 and have reprised their roles for the sequel.
Ni no Kuni II has been developed with an aim to fulfill the ambitions of the original game in the series with deeper stories and improved graphics and visuals.
