Team Ninja develops "dark warring-states RPG" for release this year

KOEI Tecmo Games' Team Ninja development studio began streaming a walkthrough video on Saturday for its Nioh "dark warring-states action RPG." Team Ninja previously screened the video during a closed-door presentation at Tokyo Game Show last September.

Team Ninja (Dead or Alive series, Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade) is developing the game. KOEI Tecmo Games announced the game with a teaser video in September. The company then revealed in December that it will release the game in the West.

KOEI Tecmo Games will release Nioh exclusively on the PlayStation 4 in 2016.

The game follows William, a blond-haired, blue-eyed samurai who arrived in Japan during the Age of Warring States, when the land was beset with supernatural entities.

KOEI Tecmo Games' general producer Kou Shibusawa is working on the game. Before it merged with Tecmo, KOEI had previously announced the game, then Romanized as Ni-Oh, as a PlayStation 3 release in 2004. At the time, it was based on concepts from the late acclaimed film director Akira Kurosawa (The Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Ran).
