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.
Taking Inspiration from the Ninja Gaiden and Dark Souls Series of games, Nioh invites you to muster the resilience of a true samurai: the skills and patience to overcome even the deadliest enemies and the courage to remain steadfast even in the face of death.
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.
Ready your blade – gruelling encounters await around every corner of a vast land ravaged by civil war.
To triumph you’ll need patience, to learn where each foe – human or demon – is strong, and when to strike at their weaknesses.
Embrace the way of the samurai to master the deep, rewarding combat system and relish every hard-fought victory.
Master every fighting style – learn the flow of combat and move with precision. Unleash combinations of attacks and dodges specific to a range of authentic samurai weapons, including polearms, katanas and axes.
Explore a fantastical and dark vision of 16th century Japan – fight alongside and against legendary heroes and villains of the Sengoku period.
Face brutal and grotesque enemies – stand alone against skilled samurai, vile beasts, and demons known as the yokai.
