Even Nioh is coming to PC

0

DLC included, but only two graphic settings?

The PC bandwagon grows ever larger. More and more Japanese role-playing games, typically exclusive to PlayStation consoles, are getting Steam releases. This time is Koei Tecmo's Nioh, whose complete edition will launch on Steam November 7, 2017--the same day as the PS4 release. The following DLC are included: “Dragon of the North, “Defiant Honor,” and “Bloodshed’s End.”

Also, that image down there with the valve sticking out of a helmet isn't just a fun image; it's a new item that'll appear in the PC release. Its description reads:

The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of 'kawari-kabuto'—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to 'Valve Kabuto,' but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…

The only peculiar thing is that, despite releasing on PC, there are two main graphics modes: “‘Action Mode’, featuring a stable 60fps, or on ‘Movie Mode’, a cinematic option that can expand the display resolution to 4K." That's the only explanation the press release gives, which leaves a lot of questions regarding specific options.

In any case this is maybe the fifth or sixth time in the last year or two that there's been a console exclusive I want to play that has been announced for PC release. Fine by me, if they all come to PC I can just save up and finally upgrade my machine instead of buying six different consoles.
