Nioh 2 will expand the experience introduced by its predecessor with new features and gameplay mechanics, as well as with the ability to create a character right from the beginning of the game. Character creation was among the most requested features, according to director Fumihiko Yasuda.

We did two demos before the first Nioh was launched, and we’re truly grateful for all the feedback from our fans. But having said that, after the game launched, one of the biggest requests that we had was character creation. And that’s something we’re going to implement in Nioh 2. Players will definitely be able to customize all the details, including gender and race.

The original Nioh is one of the best action role-playing games released in recent times, thanks to its high challenge level and excellent gameplay mechanics.

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. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
