Nioh Defiant Honor DLC
Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
Included in the DLC is the following:
- New weapon, the Tonfa
- New armor
- New magic items
- New guardian spirits
- New Yokai and enemies to battle across new stages and sub-missions.
- New difficulty levels and trophies
- New NPCs like Sanada Yukimura.
This week we learned about the third and final piece of DLC for Nioh, which will be titled Genna Enbu (official English title pending). They did not reveal any specific information regarding the content but we can anticipate a similar package to what we’ve seen so far, which includes new missions and bosses to take on during actual historical events in the Sengoku period of Japan’s history.
