Following yesterday’s reveal, Koei Tecmo had more to share today about NiOh 2 with an additional press release full of new screenshots.
We get to see an event set in Tatara village where our hero finds large blacksmith workshop dedicated to creating swords to serve as tribute to the Gods.
Yet, he finds no workers there, but only charred and burned corpses. No normal fire could have caused them to be burned standing like that.
A mysterious wind blows among fire and smoke, which coalesce into the shape of a Youkai, Enenra.
Another event shows the encounter with Imagawa Yoshimoto, the daimyo who holds most of Tokaido under his control, renowned for his mastership of the bow.
His guardian spirit Rokugezo also appears in the form of a majestic elephant with six tusks, suitable for a man of great power like Imagawa Yoshimoto.
Despite his looks, his martial abilities are unquestionable, and they will become evident fighting him.
The screenshots also showcase more of the Okehazama temple and battles against Enenra, Ippondatara, Yama-uba, and Imagawa Yoshimoto himself.
We even see the Youkai powers that we can acquire from Waira and Ipondatara.
We also hear that the beta announced a while ago will include different stages and youkai compared to the Tokyo Game Show demo. Anyone with online access on PS4 will be able to play.
You can check out all the screenshots below.
Recently, Twinfinite attended a presentation by Producer Fumihiko Yasuda, who shared a lot of interesting details about the game, including an overview of its extensive multiplayer features.
NiOh 2 will release for PS4 in early 2020.
