Nioh Has Officially Sold Over 2 Million Copies Worldwide

Nioh

If you liked Ninja Gaiden and loved Dark Souls, chances are you dug the hell out of Nioh. Well, good news – you aren’t alone! In fact, you’d be joined by a whopping 2 million other players, because the studio recently announced reaching an impressive milestone for the beloved title!

We knew the impressive achievement was coming since last month Koei Tecmo clued fans in on the game’s success with their released financial earnings since launch. In the span of a month, the bridge between 1,900,000 to over 2 million has been crossed and for good reason! The Samurai driven story was incredible, with stunning combat mechanics to boot.

For a brief overview of the game:

  • Master every fighting style – learn the flow of combat and move with precision. Unleash combinations of attacks and dodges specific to a range of authentic samurai weapons, including polearms, katanas and axes.
  • Explore a fantastical and dark vision of 16th century Japan – fight alongside and against legendary heroes and villains of the Sengoku period.
  • Face brutal and grotesque enemies – standalone against skilled samurai, vile beasts, and demons known as the yokai.

And don’t forget about the even more immersive DLC packs that came to the game, including my personal favourite: Bloodshed’s End:

  • Dragon of the North (first DLC)
    • Return once more to the Yokai infested landscape of Japan’s warring states and venture deep into its embattled northern provinces. In this story expansion for Nioh – Dragon of the North follows William’s valiant struggle in the main game and opens up the Oshu region, where ambitious ruler Masamune Date is secretly gathering spirit stones.
    • Encounter fearsome enemies and allies across three distinct stages, and develop William’s combat skills further with powerful new Ninjutsu, Onmyo magic and Guardian Spirits. Plus, discover legendary armor sets and weapons, including the Odachi great katana.
  • Defiant Honor (second DLC)
    • Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
  • Bloodshed’s End (final DLC)
    • The Siege of Osaka is over. The bloody Sengoku period is nearing its end… and so too is William’s adventure. In this final story expansion for Nioh – return to Japan months after the events of “Defiant Honor” as the country teeters on the verge of war. With new allies at his side, William must face-off against the last remaining anti-shogunate forces led by Yodogimi, as she prepares for battle against Tokugawa himself.
    • Conquer new missions, wield powerful weapons and gear, master two Guardian Spirits – including the mythical Nine-Tailed Fox, and end the bloodshed once and for all. Finally, veteran samurai are invited to The Abyss a perpetual battleground of the underworld from which only the strongest of warriors can hope to emerge.

Congrats to the team on such an amazing milestone! They definitely deserve it!
