Today Koei Tecmo hosted a fan event in Tokyo in which new gameplay of the upcoming souls-like action RPG Niho 2 was showcased.
As an appetizer to the gameplay, producer Fumihiko Yasuda introduced a short cutscene featuring the entrance of Azai Nagamasa.
Then we moved on to some single-player gameplay, but since it was too challenging for one player, there was a switch to the game’s three-player multiplayer.
Funnily one of the characters had the pre-set look reproducing the likeness of Final Fantasy XIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida.
Incidentally, we also get to see the Sunekosuri in action. He’s a cat youkai that will follow us around and help us in battle if we happen to find him while exploring a level.
The multiplayer gameplay culminates with a boss battle against Makara Naotaka.
If you’d like to see more, you can enjoy the latest trailer, the latest gameplay, the latest images and details, the previous screenshots, another batch of screenshots, one more gallery, the one released before, more images, the previous trailer, plenty of videos showing the basics of combat gameplay, the latest multiplayer gameplay, and another set of videos.
Nioh 2 will release (at least for now) exclusively for PS4 on March 13, 2020. It has recently gone gold and another demo will be available at the end of February.
Recently, we also learned that the original Nioh passed three million copies shipped just in time for the third anniversary of its release in 2017.
