Nioh Livestream Shows New Gameplay Stage & Toad Boss

Nioh Livestream Shows New Gameplay Stage & Toad Boss

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja hosted a Nioh livestream this morning to show some new gameplay for the upcoming Action RPG. The new stage begins in the video below at 43:30.

The stream begins with a showing of the original Nioh trailer from way back when, and then goes through some of the feedback from the beta demo. After a walkthrough of the tutorial, the stream shows some new gameplay from a brand new stage that features some exterior exploration as well as a structure players can explore.

The stage culminates in a showdown with a giant toad boss! The pipe smoking boss wields a large spear and can perform some powerful charge and jump attacks. The player nearly had the creature down but died tragically to its ranged ability. Smoking kills! Womp, womp.nioh-frog

They finished off by showing off the Playstation pre-order bonuses for the digital versions of the Standard and Deluxe Editions, including the new armor. They then went over the PS4 Pro enhancements the game will feature at launch as well as a quick look at some of the armor perks from the Mark of the Conqueror and Mark of the Strong DLC that players earned from completing the alpha and beta demos, the Onryoki Kabuto and Hino-Enma Kabuto head armor and some of the style changes and swaps you can make via the blacksmith, including the ability to place the style of a gear you favor on top of another.

Nioh is set to release February 9th on PS4. It will be published by Sony in the west and Koei Tecmo in Japan. They will continue to host a livestream on the 20th of each month up until release. Keep checking back with us for updates!

    Huh, I know I shouldn’t complain, but "Mark of the Strong" and "Mark of the Conqueror" sounded a lot more impressive than "here’s a helmet that looks like the boss". Oh well, still cool though :)
    And that toad boss is awesome!

    Haha, I honestly expected the demo clear bonuses to be minor things, and was anticipating something cosmetic. They are pretty cool looking at least! And yes, I cackled pretty hard when the boss popped up, love the pipe smoking yokai shadow connection.

    I wasn’t hoping we’d get actual free content DLC – it would be too generous. But some impressive cosmetics are a neat idea.
