Koei Temco Reveals Nioh Complete Edition; Releases in Japan Later This Year
Nioh is getting a Complete Edition later this year, bundling everything released so far.
Tokyo Game Show 2017 is going on these days, and lots of publishers and developers are making huge announcements. Well, it was Koei Tecmo’s turn.
Koei Tecmo revealed Nioh: Complete Edition, a new edition that includes the base game as well as all three released expansion packs; Dragon of the North, Defiant Honor, and Bloodshed. Nioh: Complete Edition releases digitally on November 7, and physically on December 7 exclusively in Japan, for the meantime at least. Here is everything you need to know about all three expansion packs:
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 armour sets and weapons, including the Odachi great katana.
Defiant Honor continues William’s journey, pitting him and the recently allied Masamune Date against the Crimson Demon of War himself, Sanada Yukimura.
Prove yourself in this fierce battle for the ages using new Guardian Spirits, Onmyo magic, Divine armour and a new weapon class – the deadly Tonfa. Plus, for Nioh veterans – take on a whole new difficulty mode worthy of a true Samurai master.
Bloodshed picks up after Defiant Honor. The Siege of Osaka’s winter campaign was put to an end by a peace negotiation between Toyotomi and Tokugawa.
However, conditions were harsh as Osaka Castle lost its secondary and tertiary enclosures, as well as its inner and outer moats, leaving just the main enclosure for the defeated.
Inevitably, this situation led to an uprising and another war broke out just months after the winter campaign. This is the final phase of the Sengoku-era, and the end of William’s journey.
There was no news or hints towards a Western release for the edition down the road, but make sure to check back as we will update you if anything new is announced.
