Team Ninja has announced that Nioh will be getting one last demo before the game launches in a couple of weeks. The demo is being titled as Last Chance Trial and it is available for PS4 users right now.
The last Chance Trial will be running this entire weekend, January 21 – 22, giving gamers one last chance to sample the game before its release. Nioh is a very intricate action RPG built around deep combat; similar to the Dark Souls series, however, it does have its own unique feel.
For those who don’t know what Nioh is about, but are interested in the game, here is a synopsis of the game:
Inspired by Japanese history and legendary samurai, Nioh will see you step into the shoes of our protagonist William as he faces off against other warriors and supernatural creatures in a grueling quest set in 16th century Japan.

Players who actually complete the demo’s missions will be rewarded with special items for when the game launches in a couple of weeks. Naoki Tamura, localization producer, explains the details in full, check it out down below:
For those who have the skill to make it through the Last Chance Trial, a number of extra rewards for the final game await you. Beating the Main Mission will net you the Ogress Headgear, whereas completing the Twilight Mission will give you the last chance to secure the Mark of the Conqueror and Mark of the Strong from last year’s Alpha and Beta.
To access the Ogress Headgear in the final game, you will need to keep your save data from the Last Chance Trial so don’t delete it until launch! For Mark of the Conqueror and Mark of the Strong, you will be prompted to download DLC that you’ll also need to keep on your PS4 until launch. In-game, visit shrines to receive these “Boons” and reap the rewards!
Nioh is set to release on February 7 exclusively for PS4.
