The first Nioh game from Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja released a little over 3 years ago and at the time, felt like a breath of fresh air. Nioh 2 is being released in a post-Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice world. As such, it has a lot to compete with. After spending an extensive amount of time with the game, it’s quite clear that what Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have delivered is exactly what fans of Nioh would enjoy.
First and foremost, comparing Nioh 2 with Sekiro would be a pretty harsh comparison. Sekiro is a completely single-player experience whereas Nioh 2 feels as if it is meant for Co-op or multiplayer gameplay. Nioh doesn’t offer the same freedom of movement as Sekiro either so players that are new to the genre, and/or are coming in after playing Sekiro last year, should bear that in mind.
Nioh 2 holds nothing back and the first enemy you face off against will likely kill you in 5 seconds flat...
Amazingly, you’ll be able to access this character creator throughout the game and change (and share) your appearance freely from the hut accessible via the world map.
The addition of a burst counter move tied into your Yokai ability is a great feature that more patient gamers will master in no time flat.
Nioh 2’s levels also feature a lot of “Benevolent graves” within them which allow players to summon help.
Gamer, writer, self-proclaimed chemistry hobo. Always looking to make use of a good pun in the name of fun.
