Nioh 2 has officially been revealed at the Sony E3 2018 press conference. The sequel to Team Ninja’s action-RPG has not been officially confirmed for PC, but after the first game ambled its way onto Steam it’s very likely that Nioh 2 will be coming to PC as well.
Alas, the reveal trailer is very light on details, with no Nioh 2 release date. We do, however, see a character killed then resurrected as a demon, which could hint at a key feature for the sequel. We can expect to hear and see a little bit more of the Souls-like in the coming days as E3 opens its doors to the public.
Want to keep up to day on all the news, reveals, and conferences? Here is our comprehensive guide to E3 2018.
Considering the first Nioh game only came out at the start of 2017, this is a fairly snappy turnaround for Team Ninja to be revealing a sequel – don’t expect to see too much in terms of gameplay just yet.
You can watch the short trailer below:
One thing that will be interesting to observe over the coming months is how Nioh 2 will stack up to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and PS4-exclusive Ghost of Tsushima. Either way, if you’ve been waiting a long time for some samurai-inspired games then it seems like this is your year.
