Nioh 2 is currently in development for PlayStation 4, and yesterday Koei Tecmo confirmed that a closed alpha is going to be held in the next few days. New gameplay has also been shown, but today even more footage emerged online.
The new Nioh 2 footage has been taken from the upcoming closed alpha and it showcases character creation as well as some intense fights, exploration and more.
The fist Nioh is among one of the best games released in recent times, and one of the takes of the gameplay formula introduced by the Souls series.
Putting the difficult nature of Nioh aside, the finely tuned combat that Team Ninja has crafted for this samurai epic is among the best I’ve played in years. Nioh more than satisfies my craving for a new Onimusha to come out of the Capcom teams while simultaneously feeding my hunger for another Souls-style affair. The difficulty may be enough to turn some prospective gamers from stepping into William’s boots, but those that persevere through the fields of yokai and demons will be rewarded with one of the finest PS4 exclusives to date, melding samurai action with the framework of the well-renowned Dark Souls series.
Nioh 2 is currently in development for PlayStation 4. A release date has yet to be confirmed.
