Greetings fellow fans of NIOh. I have some great news. At Playstation’s Pre – Tokyo Game Show, Koei Tecmo’s Kou Shibusawa announced that the Ps4 Exclusive will be releasing February 9th, 2017 worldwide.

NIOh is a third party samurai-centric action RPG. PlayStation 4’s exclusive is being developed by Team Ninja and published by Koei Tecmo. As for the plot there isn’t much known so far, but NIOh’s Wikipedia page describes the plot as such:

Nioh (Japanese: 仁王 Hepburn: Niō?, lit. “benevolent king”,) is an upcoming historical fantasy action role-playing video game developed by Team Ninja and published by Koei Tecmo for the PlayStation 4.[2] The game follows the story of a fictionalized William Adams, a white-haired English samurai (Irish in the game) during the dawn of Edo period Japan in 1600.

Fictionalized versions of other real-life historical figures also appear in the game, including Tokugawa Ieyasu, Hattori Hanzō, Tachibana Muneshige, Tachibana Ginchiyo, Kuroda Nagamasa and Kuroda Yoshitaka. William arrives in Japan during the Warring States Era, surviving not only against bandits and ruthless ronin, but against supernatural threats such as yokai and oni.

Here’s some gameplay to help with the wait.

 

 

 

NIOh is slated for release on February 9th, 2017 exclusively for the PS4.
