Coming off the Famitsu teased scans yesterday, Koei Tecmo and Sony have released some new Nioh shiny screenshots and details that show more of what’s coming in next week’s Dragon of the North DLC, as well as the free update that is bringing PvP and new skins. DLC spoilers to follow so be warned!
Dragon of the North will take place in the Oshu region and introduce the ambitious ruler, Masamune Date, also known as the “One-Eyed Dragon”. Just when you thought that peace was finally restored in Japan, we’ve now begun to hear troubling rumors that the One-Eyed Dragon is secretly gathering spirit stones, setting a stage for more unrest and mayhem to take hold.
The first batch of screens show some of the new content coming in the DLC, such as new NPCs: Date Masamune, Date Shigezane and Katakura Shigenaga, new guardian spirits: Nekomata and Seiryu and some of the foes and locations we’ll be tackling and traversing.
The next series of screens show what’s coming in the free update, the new skins for Fuku, Tome, Ginchiyo and Okatsu that we’re getting in much better clarity, and in some PvP action which we presume will be in the training dojo.
Dragon of the North is bringing new missions, weapons and lore to the game and is the first of the paid DLC’s for the game, with Defiant Honor and Bloodshed’s End due in the future. Dragon of the North release for the PS4 on May 2nd. Thoughts on what’s coming? Let us know in the comments!
