NiohNioh is a role-playing action video game created and developed by Team Ninja for PlayStation 4. It was initially released worldwide in February 2017, published by Sony Interactive Entertainment internationally, and Koei Tecmo in Japan.
The game revolves around a sailor, who pursues the sorcerer Edward Kelley into the final battles of the Sengoku period during king Tokugawa Ieyasu’s prolonged efforts to unify Japan. But with the emergence of yōkai that are flourishing in the traumatic chaos of war, the effort just gets complicated with time.
The first edition of this game was a breakout hit, with its unique storytelling approach that picks pace as other and additional characters are involved, this game pushes us in the fictionalized period of the 1600s, decorated with battles of samurais and kings that rule the world at the expense of a nasty yet thrilling war. This game not only has its action factor uplifted, but its drama and the interesting storyline are quite impressive too. You get to live the life of a samurai, and I guess that’s quite a gift for any video game enthusiast and someone who loves Anime and Mangas.
Things To Expect In Nioh 2
The post-cinematic teaser shows an action figure wearing the glorious First Samurai armor set. Which means the stories will take place in a very different age, there is a possibility of going back in the times of the epic battle against Otakemaru, fighting alongside Sakanoue. We also know that we will be getting three DLC’s, having three different individuals fighting in a completely different period of time, as compared to the main game. However, it’ll have its roots in the main game, and be a parallel tale that hasn’t been depicted in the main game. In our opinion, we speculate that the three DLC’s might revolve around the following.
in the Afterglow Movie, we can see three clips, that seem to involve certain characters with a blue eye then Sohayamaru and a person wearing the first samurai DLC armor, which eventually will revolve around the following,
- A story in a temple.
- A story of the first samurai.
- A story of a sailor or pirate or some seafaring samurai.
Part 2 Storyline
It is in this second edition of fictionalized mayhem that we meet our protagonist, who is a rogue mercenary who hunts down yokai in the Mino Province. This demon hunter has a terrible secret to hide: that they are a half-breed, the orphan offspring of both humans and the yokai blood. Due to which our mercenary is unable to find a place amidst mankind, our demon hunter journeys alone in his quest.
One fine day, as our demon hunter fights a ferocious fiend, he loses his control over his Tokai power, but luckily finds a strange merchant by the name of Toukichiro who sells magic stones that help the demon hunter communicate with the Tokai spirits. Finally, with the help of this merchant, the demon hunter regains his powers, and from there onwards, they both decide to combine their powers and continue the journey together.
Nioh 2 DLC Release Date
Nioh 2 DLC will be released around July 2020. Nioh 1 was released in February with its DLC in May, so if the second part of Nioh follows the same schedule, we can expect NIOH 2 DLC to release on the above-mentioned date. We will update you for the same when we have confirmation.
