This weekend at the PlayStation Experience during Sony’s keynote address, they showed a brief video for Nioh. Coming from Team Ninja, the video showcased a different type of gameplay than many expected, something more RPG like that looked like a Dark Souls with samurais and demons.
Well today Koei Tecmo America has confirmed that the Western release of the game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4.
Here’s a little bit more color from the press release:
“In Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Known as Yokai, these demons inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players will also face off with other samurai in supernatural sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy.
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.”
Nioh currently does not have a release date for the PS4.
