Team Ninja producer Fumihiko Yasuda announced on the official U.S. PlayStation Blog on Wednesday that KOEI Tecmo Games' Nioh 2 sequel game will launch on PlayStation 4 on March 13, 2020. The official YouTube channel for PlayStation began streaming a new trailer:
An open beta will run from November 1 to 10 and will be downloadable from the PlayStation Store. Elements like character customization and the Switchglaive weapon will be in the open beta. Players with the original Nioh game's data on the same system can use the previous protagonist William in the open beta.
The first Nioh game launched for the PlayStation 4 in North America, Europe, and Japan in February 2017. KOEI Tecmo America released the game on PC with its DLC expansions under the title Nioh: Complete Edition in November 2017.
KOEI Tecmo Games Europe describes the original Nioh game:
In the dark, fantasy action RPG Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Players will face off against other samurai in epic sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai's skills, patience, and strategy.
Team Ninja (Dead or Alive series, Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade) developed the game.
