Nioh 2: news and videos

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...

Koei Tecmo has released its second DLC add-on for mythical samurai sequel Nioh 2. The Darkness in the Capital expansion, available to download on PS4 today, is available to purchase standalone or as part of the Nioh 2 season pass. Set in a ...

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's big second DLC is out in just a few weeks

Nioh has been a font of fun for me for years. This series completely rules, as it finds a fine line between action and exploration and sticks to it: the level-based system is great for some bite-sized romp itches that other open world games...

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...

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 –...

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...

These are the Nioh 2 character contest winners

I'm going to spend entirely too long tuning my Nioh 2 character. That's just the way it is. If you'd rather embark on the yokai-busting adventure sooner than later, you may want to pick a preset character. Last year, Team Ninja held a conte...

Nioh 2 will have three DLC packs just like the first game

Depending on how far you fell down the New Game+ rabbit hole, Nioh was the kind of game you could play for months, if not years, and still have an extensive to-do list left to chip away at. Nioh 2 is bound to be another huge time-sink, and ...

Nioh 2 is slicing and dicing yokai on March 13, 2020

Nioh 2 looks like a heap of more Nioh, and while some people are going to expect substantial changes, I'm happy as is. The original game was mostly there. More ghostly monsters to fight, a full-on character creator, and a new ability (Yokai...

Nioh 2 wants you to perfect your custom character

Team Ninja is running an open beta for Nioh 2 on PS4 starting this Friday, November 1, and I figured we could all use the reminder. I'm incredibly ready to slice up more folklore-inspired creeps. I know some of you were down on the original...

Nioh 2's beta begins on November 1

Nioh 2 definitely looks good. While the visual presentation has barely changed, the gameplay looks to be a nice improvement over the original. Sporting more enemies and that neat Yokai transformation move, I'm curious to dig into the seque...

Here's a new look at Nioh 2 and its terrifying creatures

The PlayStation Blog is giving us an updated look at Team Ninja's Nioh 2, and although it's mostly art related, we do get a tangible bit of info. The post focuses on the new protagonist, a "half-breed" that utilizes the power of Yokai. You ...

Nioh 2 is running a closed alpha on PS4 and it looks glorious

We're home. Team Ninja has shared its first real gameplay footage for Nioh 2 ahead of E3 2019 and I can't properly express how stoked I am to go oni hunting again. I forgot just how fast and ruthless Nioh's combat can be when you aren't abu...

Nioh 2 proves samurai are so fetch right now

The Sony E3 conference keeps rolling forward with a huge announcement from Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja. Nioh 2 is in the works for PlayStation 4. With just a short reveal trailer, we'll have to wait until later for more information.
