Nioh 2 Gameplay Trailer Released, Confirms Early 2020 Release Date

Share this:

The first Nioh 2 gameplay trailer has been released today. This trailer was created for the Tokyo Games Show 2019, which runs from September 12 to September 15, 2019. Check out the trailer below and read on for more details about Nioh 2.

In addition to this trailer showing the first every gameplay of Nioh 2, it also confirmed an early 2020 release window. This gives everyone plenty of time to get stuck into the original Nioh and finish it before the sequel comes along, as long as this trailer hasn’t put them off too much.

Nioh 2 will follow in the footsteps of the original game, putting players in the shoes of a character who must fight against impossible odds. As a souls-like Nioh 2 is bound to attract the core group of players who enjoy the mechanics in this genre of games. Death is a core mechanic, and collected currency from enemies will be dropped upon death, meaning players must retrieve it without dying if they want to continue to upgrade their character.

This trailer shows off some new NPC faces, as well as some never before seen bosses. While these are brilliant in their own right, no multiplayer gameplay was shown. It’s likely that the multiplayer element from Nioh will return, which allows players to be summoned into another player’s world for a duel. This mechanic worked differently to how it does in Dark Souls, in that graves appear when a player dies in their world, which AI versions of that player can be summoned from by others. There’s also co-op to consider, which brings players together to take on the hardest bosses, though hardcore souls-like fans don’t bother with that.

The last release in the Nioh series was the original’s PC port. Fans should be ecstatic to finally know that the series is continuing with a release not too far away.
