The second Nioh DLC has been revealed with a new trailer, and it takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era.
The new Nioh DLC features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else, hence the name of the DLC. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
Nioh is is a Dark Souls-esq game that puts players in a 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. The demons are known as Yokai, and they inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players can also face off with other samurai in supernatural 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.
For fans of Dark Souls style games, Code Vein is another one coming from Bandai Namco and looks really intense.
