After a tumultuous development cycle, Team Ninja’s Nioh is launching soon. To give undecided gamers a final chance to try it ahead of launch, the game will run another trial this weekend. Hit the jump for more details and a sweet trailer with superior samurai action, folded over 1,000 times.
Nioh is a dark role-playing game set during Japan’s Sengoku period. Players control
Samurai Geralt William, a Westerner who arrives in Japan and starts killing demons. Think of it as a combination of Onimusha and Dark Souls. The above trailer gives an extended look at the kusarigama weapon and some new demonic foes. Given that the previous trial expanded on and massively refined the first, it’ll be interesting to see the changes made right before launch.
The Last Chance Trial will only be playable from 21 to 22 January, but you can pre-download it right now. Nioh launches for PlayStation 4 on 8 February 2017. Check out our hands-on impressions for a closer look at the game.
