The Nioh Collection is a bizarre new package that remasters not just the original 2017 title, but also its sequel, which released only 10 months ago. Of course, much of these changes come in the form of technical improvements on the PlayStation 5, including faster loading times, frame rate enhancements, and more. The Nioh Collection - bundling both Nioh Remastered - The Complete Edition and Nioh 2 Remastered - The Complete Edition - is now the quintessential way to experience some of the best action-RPG games in recent memory.
The Nioh Collection packages both Nioh titles from Team Ninja, but makes quite a few improvements as they're considered remasters. I won't dive too deep into the games themselves (we have prior reviews for both Nioh and Nioh 2) but I will spend some time talking about what this PS5 bundle offers in terms of content as well as its enhancements for current-gen hardware.
Firstly, if this is your entry point into the Nioh series, consider yourself lucky. The Nioh Collection is the definitive package for both games in the series, fully remastered with all six of its DLCs (each game containing three). As far as remasters go, though, the collection simply offers the convenience of owning both games in one complete bundle, but it's also possible to experience some of these new features via the backward compatibility as the PS4 versions have already received notable improvements such as faster loading times already. However, with the PS5 championing lightning fast speeds, you'll find them noticeable in especially Nioh 2, which is so fast, it hardly has any loading screens.
This makes the act of jumping into stages a breeze, but more importantly, streamlines the process of accessing your inventory - you'll be doing this quite a lot in the hub area and main menu. Cutscenes are also loaded in almost immediately, with very little downtime between cinematics and gameplay. It becomes prevalent in Nioh 2 which has a lot more cutscenes than its predecessor, but it's all the more impressive when you factor in just how insanely fast you're able to switch from cutscenes to menus to gameplay in a matter of seconds.

The PS5 does offer three additional modes: 4K Mode, the PlayStation 5 standard mode, and a 120FPS mode.
