Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a new video of Nioh 2, showing plenty of gameplay of the upcoming Souls-like action RPG.
We see two Japanese comedians, Yuuki Iwai from Haraichi and Sunshine Ikezaki, as they get to grips with the game. Incidentally, this is not the first time we see them in action, as Sony recently put them at the controls of Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
Interestingly, we get to take a look at the character creator, with two characters which have been customized to look like the players, and the similarity is rather striking.
Then we move on to what appears to be the beginning of the game, and the rest is pretty much what you can expect… a lot of deaths over and over. Even if you don’t understand Japanese, it’s quite hilarious.
You can watch it below.
If you’d like to see more, you can enjoy the latest trailer and commercial, a gallery of screenshots, the previous gameplay, the previous trailer, the more gameplay, more 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.
