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


It's easily missed in the Shrine menu

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 2 to Version 1.26, duck into the Shrine menu, and flip over to the Boons tab. It's been a while, so I had a few bonuses waiting for me – including the catgirl garb.

If you're rusty, I've snapped a few pics showing where to find the Dragon Ninja transformation:

This is where you can find Boons in Nioh 2

Redeeming the Dragon Ninja transformation

Nioh 2's Dragon Ninja transformation

The transformation is a nice little tie-in for this year's Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection trilogy.

Also, for those of you who are diligently carving your way through Nioh 2 on PC or PS5 right now, you can spar with a Hayabusa in due time. Don't sleep on the Darkness in the Capital DLC, y'all.
