With Nioh releasing worldwide this week, Koei Tecmo released the opening movie to the game:
Nioh has gone through an extensive amount of alpha and beta demos, including a final demo last month. Team Ninja has worked with the fan feedback in order to improve the game. Having played the game throughout these stages will earn players various rewards, such as Mark of the Strong and Mark of the Conqueror DLC.
For anyone who never played the demos or kept up with the game, here is how Nioh is described by Koei Tecmo:
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.
Nioh releases for Playstation 4 in the U.S. tomorrow, February 8th in Europe, and February 9th in Japan.
