Once you get your kingdom going you’re going to want to find citizens in Ni No Kuni 2. Without new citizens you won’t be able to continue growing your kingdom. A lot of people have been asking where to find new citizens in Ni No Kuni 2 so we’ve set out to answer that question. This article will continually add citizen locations in Ni No Kuni 2 until all citizens in the game have been recruited. Right now there are enough citizen locations here to get your kingdom up to level 3 in terms of the requirements needed when it comes to recruiting citizens, but keep checking back for more Ni No Kuni 2 citizen locations as we make our way through the game.

Citizen Locations

If you’re not sure what citizens can do for you, be sure to check out our coverage of building up your kingdom so you understand why you need new citizens. Most citizens are recruited by completing side quests found in various towns or via Swift Solutions, the traveling side quest giver. However, many of the side quests you need are not available until you’ve reached a certain portion of the main story. That means you’ll need to stop building up your kingdom at some point so you can go recruit more citizens. Citizen quests you get from Swift Solutions can be acquired from any Swift Solutions location, but you will still need to travel to the location of the citizen in order to have them join your kingdom.

For those unfamiliar with Swift Solutions, he first appears in Goldpaw during main story quest 4-4. Swift Solutions is always marked by a penguin head on the map, making him easy to spot. Talk to Swift Solutions and he’ll offer you a number of side quests that give you Tokens of Gratitude, the currency of his shop. You can then spend the currency to unlock citizen quests.

Swift Solutions moves around to various locations, so always speak with him if you’re in need of new citizens. While normal side quests result in a new citizen moving directly to Evermore, Swift Solutions quests only activate the citizen quest. You still have to talk to the citizen in question after completing a Swift Solutions side quest before they'll move to Evermore.

Below you’ll find a chart of each citizen we’ve found, the location where they were found, the side quest associated with them (if applicable), and how far you need to be in the story to activate the side quest. Some quests may appear slightly earlier or later than what's listed in the chart depending on when you complete other quests in the game. As a general rule you should talk to anyone who is marked by a blue question mark on your map, especially when you reach new cities in the game. You can check your side quest in the quest section of the party menu. Any quest that has a person symbol to the right will result in a new citizen for your kingdom.

As previously stated, we’ll be adding more and more citizen locations as we work our way through the game.
