Nioh 2 Receives A New Trailer, Release Window (VIDEO)
Team Ninja’s Nioh was an unexpected hit when it released back in early 2017, with critics and fans alike falling in love with the Souls-like difficulty, the game’s combat pacing, and its mythical Japanese settings. The game carried a dour tone of death, with a few humorous elements like the Kodama. Many fans have been wondering when the game might see a sequel, and their questions were answered when Nioh 2 was unveiled at Sony’s Press Conference at E3 2018.
Since then, it has mostly been radio silence on Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja’s part. Thankfully, it appears that Nioh fans have just a bit more to sink their teeth into, as a new trailer has been revealed showing off the narrative elements of Nioh 2 and a general release window for the game. Check out the trailer here:
The trailer is all in Japanese, though there are also a few parts that show off pure gameplay. Surprisingly, it seems like Nioh 2 will follow multiple characters throughout the single player campaign. On top of that we also received an official release window of Early 2020, with the title coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4. That said, the first Nioh eventually made its way to PC about 10 months after its console release, though such a port has yet to be announced for the sequel.
Nioh 2 will release in a very stacked early part of next year. Other games like the Final Fantasy VII Remake, as well as Cyberpunk 2077, will undoubtedly be huge sellers. This makes the potential success of Nioh 2 a bit more difficult to predict at this point. Hopefully the game can carve out its own niche like the first one and please fans and newcomers alike.
