Team Ninja announced a game at last year’s PlayStation Experience that captured the audience’s attention. Their upcoming title, Nioh, is exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and is set to deliver the adrenaline-pumping action that the studio is best known for.
The game is being developed under the direction of Kou Shibusawa, Hisashi Koinuma and Team Ninja. It promises to challenge player skill, their patience, and strategy in its demon-infested setting of feudal Japan.
Sony has announced that this month, players will be able to get their hands on the Alpha Demo of the title.
“Ten years have passed since Nioh was originally announced. Even during all that time though, gamers would always ask about it at events like E3 and Gamescom. We always felt support from the gamers around the world for this title,” said the game’s general producer Kou Shibusawa.
“Now, finally, Nioh — a game created with the entire power of Koei Tecmo — will be released in 2016. In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month. We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action — Nioh.”
“Set in a time of civil war in Japan, Nioh not only incorporates classic elements such as samurai and supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore, but also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team Ninja, the team that defined brutal action games.
“We will give gamers a taste of this all-new experience in the Alpha Demo releasing this month. But it will only be available for a limited time so play it while you can! Players who manage to clear a stage of this the Alpha Demo will be able to download The Mark of the Conqueror DLC. This will entitle you to some special DLC in the full game.
The Alpha Demo will be available from April 26 to May 5. It’ll be disabled after that, so be sure to get your game on during that time.
