Prepare for the horror of the Dark Realm with your first look at the samurai adventure’s intense combat in a brand new trailer, just revealed at Tokyo Game Show.
Nioh 2 is the sequel to the 2017 game from Koei Tecmo set during a fictionalized version of the year 1600, the plot follows the journeys of William, an Irish sailor who pursues the sorcerer Edward Kelley into the final battles of the Sengoku period during Tokugawa Ieyasu’s efforts to unify Japan, an effort complicated by the emergence of yōkai that are flourishing in the chaos of war. Gameplay revolves around navigating levels and defeating monsters that have infested an area; combat revolves around stamina or “Ki” management and different sword stances that are strong or weak against different enemies. Nioh was originally intended for release on the PlayStation 3, but the project went through a turbulent and prolonged pre-production period, going through multiple revisions until its final version began development in 2014 for the PS4. The game was released in February 2017. Nioh 2 is currently under development.
