Nioh has gone gold, more info coming this week

Nioh, my most anticipated game of 2017 currently ("currently," because who knows, maybe From Software will announce another Souls game or we'll get a Devil May Cry 5 at E3!), has gone gold. That means that it's done and dusted, an...

These Nioh screens are magnificent

Man, Disney World used to have a badass mythology museum in the Japan area of Epcot, which showcased a bunch of creatures like Tengu, Kappa, and Kitsune. Now it's a "Kawaii Museum," which is still neat, but the former was just so wonderfull...

Nioh kunoichi disregards reality but who cares

I remember forgetting the word for female ninja, "kunoichi," when talking with a Japanese friend once. No matter how much I explained the concept and how much of a basic word it was, she couldn't think of it. When I finally remembered she ...

Has Nioh redeemed Team Ninja for you?

Back when Itagaki was at the helm, Team Ninja was riding high. Say what you will about Dead or Alive but it made an impact on the 3D fighter market in the '90s, and Ninja Gaiden's pristine reboot? Say no more. But after he left, they starte...

Nioh has a fairly typical digital deluxe edition

I had been wondering what all Team Ninja and Sony would be doing for Nioh's release beyond the basic standard edition. As covered on the PlayStation Blog, there will be a digital deluxe edition, one that comes with a copy of the samurai act...

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...

Nioh sure has some ugly demons

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...

Team Ninja's Nioh returns with a beta demo on August 23

Team Ninja's action-RPG Nioh messed me up in all the right ways, and ever since the alpha demo period ended, I've been eager to get back into its gloomy, oppressive, oni-filled world for round two. If you missed out on your chance back in A...

King of Fighters' Mai joining the cast of Dead or Alive 5

Koei Tecmo has teamed up with SNK to bring a bit of King of Fighters crossover to Dead or Alive 5. As part of the annual Dead or Alive Festival this weekend in Tokyo, developer Team Ninja revealed plans to bring Fatal Fury and Kin...

Bent, not broken: Nioh's flexible rigidity

It's been a long and winding road for Nioh. Koei unveiled the project a decade and a half ago -- four years prior to the company's 2008 merger with Tecmo, whose own Team Ninja (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) is now handling development of the...

Team Ninja highlights Nioh demo feedback, planned changes

With my Souls mindset, I had a rough time adjusting to Nioh's quirks at first, but I got wrapped up in the "dark samurai" action-RPG once I figured out the different character stances and how to keep my stamina usage in check. The recent al...

Team Ninja is on to something special with Nioh

I've been putting off the Nioh alpha demo not for lack of interest, but because I knew I'd need to play at my most attentive. Team Ninja's PlayStation 4 action-RPG has come across as a Japanese mythology-infused Dark Souls with shades of On...

Playing the Nioh demo will net you free DLC for the full game

Nioh, Team Ninja's latest action romp that actually doesn't look half bad, is getting a demo today. Not just any demo either -- as this one will only be available for a limited time. Yep, you have from today until May 5 to grab it, and then...

Nioh still looks beast, here's the TGS demo

Nioh, where have you been? These past few eras have been filled with misfires like Ninja Gaiden 3 -- we could use a savior like you. Last year while attending TGS, I wasn't able to preview Team Ninja's upcoming Nioh, as it was mer...

It's time for some Dead or Alive 5 hunks

I'm not playing Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, much less spending a bunch of money on extra costumes, but like Steven, I can appreciate a good bit of male swimsuit DLC. You too? Nice. Although this latest batch of outfits released last week on...
