Nioh is inspired by the Sengoku perioud in Japan, set in the start of the 17th century. Taking on the role of an Irishman named William, players undertake the challenge to master a number of Japanese type weapons as they fight a range of horrific and deadly enemies.
It’s been a while since last year where Team Ninja revealed at E3 that there would be a sequel, Nioh 2. The teaser trailer didn’t share much but we later learned players will be able to create their own unique characters. Just as the first Nioh has a demo for players to try, Nioh 2 will have it’s own before it’s release.
Nioh is currently available on PS4 and PC.
