Nioh 2 Story Trailer Mixes Feudal War With Magic
"Let this be the end of wars waged with spirit stones."
Nioh 2 for PS4 is one of the few big spring releases that has managed not to get delayed in the last few weeks, and a new story trailer helps set the stage for the action. In it we see a mixture of historical drama and mystical elements as feudal Japanese warriors do battle with spirit stones. You can watch it below and check out our Nioh 2 preview for more.
You play as a hired mercenary abandoned by your parents, who were human and Yokai. Your parentage means you can transform into a supernatural Yokai form, which thrusts you into the middle of a raging war.
The first Nioh was a critical success, including in GameSpot's review which gave it a 9/10. The mixture of a feudal Japanese setting and tough-as-nails Dark Souls combat earned its fans, and it's among our most anticipated games of 2020.
Nioh 2 is coming to PS4 on March 13, and multiple special editions are offering different bonuses. For more details check out our pre-order guide.
