Developer Koei Tecmo’s brutal and unforgiving series, Nioh, is officially getting its second instalment, Nioh 2. The studio took center stage at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 to reveal a brand new trailer for the upcoming sequel.
Earlier in May, Koei Tecmo already sent out invites to a selected group of people to take part in Nioh 2’s closed alpha and help the studio in its development. The title promises to bring in more characters, higher intensity, and unforgiving combat, just like its predecessor. Here is a brief description of Nioh 2.
Survive a brutal blend of Japanese myth, legend, and history. Master the lethal arts of the samurai as a mysterious half-human, half-supernatural Yokai warrior, in this challenging action RPG sequel. Explore violent Sengoku-era Japan and the deadly Dark Realm, both plagued with grotesque, merciless demons. Unsheathe your deadly weapons and cut down all enemies in your path using a revamped combat system and the ability to transform into a full Yokai to unleash devastating paranormal powers.
Nioh 2‘s release is finally confirmed for Early 2020 on PS4. Make sure to check out the brand new trailer below. Although the trailer is in Japanese, it doesn’t take anything away from how exciting this title looks.
