The Nioh 2 PS5 remaster loads fast as hell

One of my first takeaways with the Demon's Souls PS5 remake was how much less prickly the experience can be when load times are quick. That sentiment will also go for the PS5 remasters of Nioh and Nioh 2. When these games launch for PlaySta...

I hate Nioh 2's Valve helmet so so so so so much

It's a busy day for Nioh news, all of it good. Scratch that. Almost all of it good. Both Nioh games are coming to PS5 with 4K and 120fps support on February 5, 2021. (That's good.) Also, Nioh 2's complete edition is launchin...

Both Nioh games are coming to PS5 in 2021 in 4K and 120 FPS

It's incredible to see Team Ninja bounce back with the Nioh series. After a string of mistakes (capped off by Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z) things weren't looking good for the studio, but Nioh brought them back into the collective consciousne...

Review: Nioh 2: Darkness in the Capital

With Team Ninja dropping Nioh 2 DLC every few months, it's tough to catch up and stay caught up. Darkness in the Capital uses the same structure as The Tengu's Disciple, meaning there's a new weapon to learn (Fists and Clawed Fists), a few ...

Nioh 2 is getting ninja claws with Darkness in the Capital

It feels like I just beat up yokai with Benkei in Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple the other day, but Team Ninja is already coming back with Darkness in the Capital, the second story expansion, on October 15. During Tokyo Game Show 2020, the s...

Nioh 2 has a funny reward for clearing Dream of the Demon

You might finish all of the Tengu's Disciple DLC missions in one go, but Nioh 2's newly-added Dream of the Demon mode is going to be a weeks-long time-sink for many of us. After hearing about the reward for clearing the base game on New Gam...

Review: Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple

After spending an absurd amount of time with Nioh 2 this year in pursuit of the platinum trophy, New Game+, and incrementally better character builds, I wasn't sure if I was ready to return so soon. It's a testament to this game – and...

Nioh 2's rare Soul Cores are less grindy in the 1.08 update

Team Ninja is continuously refining Nioh 2. I'm done with the game for now – apart from the never-ending incremental loot grind and some of the ridiculous weapon-specific Title challenges, I've finished everything I set out to –...

Review: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: Shadow of Doom

There's no two ways about it: the season pass for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 has pretty much bamboozled us so far. Okay, I get that the first DLC might not meet all our expectations. But the second pack similarly disappointed and compl...

Farm this Nioh 2 mission if you want to hit the level cap

I've been patiently waiting for the Nioh 2 community to rally around a go-to farming strategy, and while there isn't a consensus yet – and there are multiple long-term goals to grind out, including your XP, gold, and weapon/Onmyo/Ninj...

Review: Nioh 2

Nioh was something of a surprise hit in 2017. Many of us saw the Sengoku-era action-RPG – a brilliant fusion of From Software concepts and Team Ninja's own Ninja Gaiden – as a return to form. It's not every day that a falte...

Nioh 2 tip: Don't forget to power up your Soul Cores

Nioh 2 has a bunch of interlocking stats and systems that can give you a much-needed edge in combat, and one of them, in particular, is worth shouting out: you gotta stay on top of your Soul Cores. It took me way too long before I realized ...

Nioh 2 tip: Give your extra items to the little purple Sudama

Nioh players all know and love Kodama, the little green spirits lurking around the world in easily-overlooked places, but in Nioh 2, you'll also want to keep an eye out for Sudama, the purple fellas with skull masks. You aren't meant to rou...

After its many demos, are you still interested in Nioh 2?

With its Last Chance Trial now finished, showing off how Nioh 2 has changed since its early alphas, the sequel is less than a week away from dropping, kicking off a deluge of new games for 2020. Since Team Ninja takes feedback seriously, an...

Nioh 2's Last Chance Trial runs from Feb. 28 to March 1

I feel like I barely made a dent in the Nioh 2 open beta, and something tells me I'm far from alone. Thankfully, Team Ninja is giving us another shot at redemption before the sequel releases on March 13. From February 28 at 12:00 a.m. Paci...
