Today, during a Christmas livestream hosted by the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, Koei Tecmo revealed new gameplay of its upcoming masocore action-RPG NiOh 2.
The gameplay was presented by director Fumihiko Yasuda himself, and we got to see a completely new stage.
On top of that we get to see the recently-released transformable weapon “Switchglaive” in action and a new boss, the powerful samurai Makara Naotaka.
As many other characters appearing in the NiOh series, Makara Naotaka is a historical figure who fought during the Sengoku era in service of the Asakura clan.
Like the boss you can see in the video, he was known for his skill with the Nodachi, which is basically a much longer and heavier katana. Yes. I am aware I’m oversimplifying it.
You can enjoy the full recording below.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy the latest batch of screenshots, the previous gallery, the latest trailer, some additional details about the beta from yesterday, more info from the day before, plenty of videos showing the basics of combat gameplay, the previous trailer, the latest multiplayer gameplay, another set of videos, a gallery of images, another batch of screenshots, and plenty more images from the day before.
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 (at least for now) exclusively for PS4 on March 13, 2020.
