Nioh 2 is the anticipated sequel to Kei Tecmo's original game. It will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive just like its predecessor and next month it will be making a showing at the Tokyo Game Show. Creative director Tom Lee showcased key art for the upcoming title on the PlayStation Blog which confirmed many fans suspicions that the main character would be a half-breed. \n \nThe first game had you following the tale of William, an Irish sailor who was pursuing a sorcerer named Edward Kelley into the final battles of the Sengoku period. This meant that the game was taking place during Tokugawa Ieyashu's efforts to unify all of Japan. The land was being plagued by emerging yokai that were flourishing due to the chaos of war. \n \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/PlayStation\/status\/1164630081052000257 \n \nThis new installment has you playing as a character that is half-human and possesses the power of the Yokai. You play as a samurai warrior and his journey through the Sengoku period of Japan. As an insider in the world, you will watch the effects of the war first hand and the evil Dark Realm of the Yokai. The developers promise that through the metamorphosis, they will give you some truly intense action scenes. \n \nThe images themselves have revealed a lot about what is to come from the game. Several enemies are showcased, including the Nure-Onna and the Enenra. The last image shows a clear image of the Yokai\/Devil Trigger form in the sequel using the new Yokai Shift mechanic that many have heard the developers reference. \n \nThe demo that ran in May gave a good feel of what is to come as it lets you enjoy a tutorial area that is the same dojo from the original game. Here you could practice your basic attacks, finishers, and the Ki-Pulse ability. Fans of the series welcomed the UI overhaul that had taken place allowing things to be much clearer to the player. \n \nJust from this short time, players quickly found that this game had fixed many of the issues found in the original. Then they got to experience an entire intro adventure in the game itself. \n \nHistory fans were happy to see that the weapons and armor were beautifully modeled to look like authentic pieces. Even the monsters which were based on classic Japanese woodblock artwork looked beautiful against the realistic environment. \n \nThe recent alpha demo was available and played by over 50,000 fans. There was tons of feedback coming back on the project which the team has been working tirelessly to process through. No one is completely sure what the Tokyo Game Show will have or how close the game is to launch, but many are sure that more details will be on their way the closer the game show gets.
