Sony’s PlayStation Experience was filled with exciting announcements. As of this weekend our friends at Koei Tecmo officially announced their newest project in development by Kou Shibusawa, Hisashi Koinuma, and Team NINJA. Their upcoming title is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4 at an unrevealed date.
In this upcoming title by Team NINJA, Nioh will allow players to traverse across a war-torn Japan. As they do players will battle demons as a character by the name of William, a blonde-haired swordsman who comes as a fierce warrior and an in-depth knowledge of the blade that allows him to survive and fight through a demon ravaged land that once belonged to the samurai. Known as Yokai, the demons that William will take on inhabit the lands in dangerous locations and in dangerous numbers. These enemies will push players to the tipping point of their skills as they go into supernatural sword battles that will assist them in taking out multiple targets while also honing their samurai skills, patience, and strategy to take on their upcoming foes.
Offering a deep and original storyline that takes place during the Warring States Period of Japanese history alongside strategic sword-fighting action, Nioh will challenge players in a way that makes every mission and accomplishment feel earned and worthwhile. More information on this comprehensive, action-packed RPG experience will be released in the coming months.
