Unleash the darkness and sharpen your skills! Team Ninja has released the launch trailer for Nioh 2, the sequel game to 2017’s Nioh. The game is a prequel to the first title, set in the 1500s. Similar to its predecessor, Nioh 2 is an action role-playing game. Players can create their own playable character, who was a yōkai spirit. Players are equipped with a variety of weapons such as odachi and kusarigama, and earn new skills as they progress in the game. When players defeat a hostile yōkai, some of them may drop a “Soul Cores”. They allow players to use yōkai abilities and transform into a yōkai after they are deposited in a shrine.
Nioh 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive title that launches March 13.
