You might want to carve out some room in your gaming schedule. Sony just announced the PlayStation Plus free game lineup for November 2019, and it's a doozy: subscribers are getting Nioh and Outlast 2. If you're a PS Plus member, just follo...

Nioh has cleared two million sales

I love Nioh for so many reasons and it warms my heart to see the game continue to sell well. It has tight, layered combat. It strikes a nice balance between drama and levity. The base game is rich with content, and it just never seems to en...

$1,000 seems like an awful lot of money for a Nioh statue

Team Ninja's Nioh was a strong effort that had a legitimate claim to being one of 2017's very best titles. It's a beloved game, which means that it has its share of devoted supporters. But how many of them are willing to drop a grand ...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for GOTY 2017

2017 may be over, but it won’t be forgotten. While 2016 had a collection of some decent enough titles, everyone brought out their A game this year. While I’m still not quite sure whether these games are as important as years pas...

Nioh's PC port finally gets mouse support

Nioh will finally be getting mouse support for its PC port in a new update. Coming November 30 (for Japan), Koei Tecmo will allow users to rebind keyboard controls and move the camera with the mouse. I'm shocked this wasn't in the original ...

PC Port Report: Nioh: Complete Edition

Earlier this year, Team Ninja released their take on FromSoftware’s winning Souls formula in the form of Nioh. The game shifted the setting away from Gothic and eldritch horrors and moved into the Sengoku Period of Japan, making for a...

Get ready for Nioh's PC port with this quick trailer

Team Ninja is bringing its take on FromSoftware's Souls series to PC with Nioh: Complete Edition next week. To get everyone hyped for the 4K, 60 FPS gameplay, a brand new trailer has been uploaded with a bunch of accolades and a small look ...

Even Nioh is coming to PC

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, ...

Nioh is getting a complete edition later this year

Nioh has been the gift that keeps on giving for me with a constant surge of both free updates and DLC, and I'll probably be playing it long after the third DLC (slated for this week) drops. A lot of you will probably be doing the same thing...

Nioh's third and final DLC adds a new mode this month

Just the other day, I caught Nioh out of the corner of my eye and wished I had a clone to level up my character during the day, as I worked, so I could finally dig into the Defiant Honor DLC. I'm way behind, to say nothing of the heightened...

Nioh's Defiant Honor DLC should be another good one

I left Dragon of the North wanting even more Nioh, both because I'm not burned out on the game yet and also because the new story thread feels like it's only just getting started. The second expansion, Defiant Honor, picks back up on July 2...

Nioh's Dragon of the North DLC is looking good

Slipping in right before tomorrow's launch, Team Ninja has a trailer out for Dragon of the North, the first major DLC for Nioh. As I was just saying the other day, I'll gladly take any old excuse to get back into this game -- it's a top te...

Free and paid updates for Nioh confirmed for May 2

As promised, Koei Tecmo is launching its PVP update for Nioh for free on May 2. Originally slated for "late April" it's been pushed back just a tiny bit, but it's close enough! Launching alongside of that will be a bit of paid DLC called Dr...

Latest Nioh update lets you pause the game

Just when I think I'm out, they pull me right back in. While the big "Wait, really?" part of this week's Nioh update is undoubtedly the newfound ability to pause the game when you aren't in multiplayer and summoning a co-op visitor, that's ...

This hour-and-a-half Nioh speedrun isn't messing around

Nioh is still new. There are untold builds, routes, and exploits left for the community to discover. And yet here we already are, two weeks after release, with a 1:36:51 "All Main Missions" run by Distortion2. There's a lot of running and ...

Look for Nioh's free PvP update and first DLC in April

You know that feeling when you get a new game and you become deeply, terribly invested in it as if it's some sort of curse you have to take with you to the grave? A week in, you pause for a rare moment of reflection. You wonder how you coul...

Nioh gold farming can be fast, easy, and lucrative

If there's one thing I could use more of in Nioh, it's gold. Gold is where it's at. It's true that you can play normally and boost your gold-grabbing efforts with stat-boosting equipment, your choice in guardian, or the achievement-esque t...

Here's how New Game+/postgame works in Nioh

Nioh is a return to form for Team Ninja. Not only does it preserve the hardcore nature of their roots, hearkening back to their golden age era that peaked with Ninja Gaiden Black, but it also has some modern conveniences built into it....

How to identify and deal with Nioh's mimic chests

I've been sleep deprived this past week and I don't see that changing. The cause? Nioh. I can't get enough Nioh. It's Team Ninja's Souls- and Diablo-inspired samurai action game, and it is fantastic. Chris got us rolling with some quick ti...

Very Quick Tips: A Nioh Guide

Nioh can get really rough at points. That's a good thing, mind, as long as you're okay with "two to three hit kill" bosses type of rough. Here are some tips to help you along the way.

Review: Nioh

The PS4 is really kicking off 2017 with some damn good exclusives. If you count the VR version of Resident Evil 7 (which you should, as it's fantastic), it also has Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Yakuza 0...

Nioh will be adding PVP as free DLC after launch

While Nioh isn't exactly a PVP game, it will be getting the capability at some point in the future. Although it'll ship as a PVE experience, director Yosuke Hayashi told Gamereactor that they already have a PVP mode in the works, and w...

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 ...

Nioh's story trailer has some cool animation

Another game that has seemingly been around for a while (it started preliminary development in 2004, but was only announced in 2015), Nioh, is nearly here, with an early February release in the west. Get up to speed in the latest story trai...

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 will release worldwide on February 9, 2017

The long awaited and recently revived Nioh by Koei Tecmo finally has an official release date, announced during Sony's press conference at Tokyo Game Show: February 9, 2017 for all regions. Just in time for Valentine's Day.

The second Nioh beta is out today, with a new DLC to unlock

Nioh has rapidly shot up my "most anticipated" list. While Team Ninja is a hit or miss studio in a post-Itagaki world (who is also hit or miss these days!), it seemed to really nail it with this one. It helps that we've gotten not one,...

The next Nioh demo will run from August 23 to September 6

This week at gamescom, Koei Tecmo has provided some updated information on the second Nioh demo, which will once again be held on the PS4 platform. The second "beta demo" will start on August 23, and will run through September 6, at which p...

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...

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 is getting a demo this month on PS4

Nioh might still be months away, but Koei Tecmo is helping to curb the wait with an "Alpha Demo," that will arrive this month that, much like the game, will be exclusive to PS4. The demo itself will only be live from April 26 to May 5,...

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...

Ni-Oh is evidently targeting 60fps at 1080p

Koei Tecmo is really pushing its boundaries hardware-wise, with its first ever lead PS4 project Attack on Titan, and now, Ni-Oh. According to 4Gamer, the publisher is going to attempt 1080p/60fps on PS4 for the action game. That was one of ...

I've got my eye on Nioh, Team Ninja's latest action project

We've heard very little from Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo regarding Nioh. It wasn't even playable at TGS, and was only there in video form. But even then, it immediately flew on my radar. I'm glad to hear that it will be arriving worldwid...
