Some are of the human variety, ranging from eccentric bandits and battle-hardened warriors who protect their homes. Others are malevolent spirits of the night, out to devour any careless wanderer who crosses their path at an in-opportune moment. Regardless, it’ll be the player’s job to battle alongside or against them.
And battle they shall: Following a brief and suspense-filled build-up, the trailer moves into sequence after sequence of the player character struggling to clash and slash their way through Nioh 2’s enemies. Sometimes, they succeed and take down their aggressors; and other times, they fail, torn to shreds by the opponent’s strength.
Fortunately, there are a number of tools and techniques available to the player to ensure the latter doesn’t befall them. From a wide array of weapons they can equip to the ability to let loose their inner demon, there are more than a few ways they can turn the tables on their enemies and come out on top.
It’s a flashy and intense trailer to say the least, and it culminates in a reveal fans of the first game might find some reason to be excited about.
The trailer can be viewed in its entirety below.
Nioh 2 is set to release on Mar. 13 exclusively on the PlayStation 4. For more on the game, check out a recent trailer and T.V. commercial which dive deeper into the game’s character creation mechanics, combat and other gameplay elements that players will want to have a grasp on.
