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.
