Nioh 2 has gone gold, so practice your frame-perfect combos and dodges now


I've been playing a bit of Nioh 1 recently

Nioh 2 will soon be upon us (March 13) and once again it's going to be a PS4 exclusive. 

How can I say for sure that Koei Tecmo is sticking to that release date? Well the game has gone gold ("master approval") and is ready for a full release, so there's presumably no turning back now. This news comes off of the heels of the original selling three million copies during its third anniversary.

With no From Software RPG technically slated for 2020 (or Souls game in sight for that matter), I'm beyond excited for Nioh 2. The original Nioh was one of my favorite games of the decade, and talking about it with our own Jordan Devore and discovering new tidbits underneath the hood has been an absolute joy.

From what I've seen and played of Nioh 2, it looks like it'll continue that legacy. A legacy, mind, that could keep rolling in the future with a PS5 exclusive.
