Spanning from an opening movie trailer to the official launch trailer, gamers thirsty for more Nioh have a cup full of Nioh 2 not too far away ready to quench any dry throats out there.
Up first on the menu is the opening movie. The following video is what you or others will see when starting the game up, which I’m sure the name gives away. With that said, you can check out the new video right here courtesy of Koei Tecmo:
For those of you that want a quick summary of the above opening trailer will find that Japan during its Warring States period in 1555 is sundered by never-ending warfare, chaos, demonic yōkai, and evil spirits that feed on easy victims.
Nevertheless, during these perilous times, the protagonist is turned into a half-breed by a yōkai and later returns as a rogue mercenary hunting down yōkai in the Mino Province. From here, the half-breed protagonist tries to put an end to said chaos and must journey through an unraveling path of despair to do so.
For those of you curious as to what is on this journey, PlayStation and Koei Tecmo have the English and Japanese launch trailers up for your viewing pleasure:
Lastly, folks can look to take part in three expansions that will go live post-launch by either getting the season pass or the digital deluxe edition. You can learn more by paying blog.us.playstation.com a visit.
