Don't forget to claim the Dragon Ninja skin in Nioh 2

As if I don't already have a hard enough time sticking to a single character transformation in Nioh 2, Team Ninja went ahead and released the Ryu Hayabusa-approved "Dragon Ninja" look for free in-game. To grab it, update your copy of Nioh ...

Nioh Remastered Collection launches on PS5 tomorrow

Tomorrow sees the launch of Nioh Collection on PS5, bringing together two excellent adventure titles, freshly remastered for Sony's next-gen hardware. Publisher Koei Tecmo, alongside developer Team Ninja, has released a dramatic launch trai...

Nioh 2: The Complete Edition seems fine enough on PC

After pouring easily hundreds of hours into Nioh 2 and its three DLC packs on PS4, it's admittedly been pretty jarring to start a fresh save on PC – even if I'm only here for preview purposes right now. I had forgotten just how lethal...

Here's a good long look at Nioh 2 Remastered running on PS5

A rapidly-moving action-RPG like Nioh 2 needs to be as crisp, fluid, and legible as possible, and I'd say Team Ninja is in a good place with next month's Nioh 2 Remastered for PlayStation 5. The studio shared 14 minutes of uninterrupted foo...

Review: Nioh 2: The First Samurai

I had hoped – and even started to believe – that Nioh 2 was building up to a thrilling conclusion across its three DLC packs, but the final expansion, The First Samurai, is a bit of a letdown. It's not outright bad, and I'm just...

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...
