    No release date, no details, but Nioh 2 confirmed at E3




    I'm happy, first part had some problems, but overall a very good experience. Hoping they will fix enemy variety in the second.

    When I saw KT and Team Ninja, I naively hoped for a new Ninja Gaiden. :negative:

    This is the time to do it. They made a very good game with Nioh, I think they should be prepared to revive the King!

    I hope they ditch that boring-ass Geralt dude, and allow us to create and customize a new character.

    This will most likely have better combat and boss encounters (and more of them) than Suckiro: Miyazaki Lies Twice even if the level design is still meh, plus character creation is a nice surprise. :bounce:

    So my guess is that they are trading in the animal spirits for a Yokai form as the DT.

    I never felt the game was missing a Yokai form mode the way Bloodborne clearly lacked a beast mode. Sounds like it goes against the whole precision weapon combat system thing they have going. The animal spirit guardian force pokemon crap was already messy enough.

    Create-an-ugly is all well and good but he's saying nothing about getting rid of the diablo loot, making the areas connected to each other or allowing us to invade other players' worlds. Things I'd hope Sekiro/BB2/DS6 gets right.

    I think it's a pretty interesting direction they're taking. In Nioh demons abide by a completely different set of rules than humans - their stamina behaves differently, they need to spawn corruption pools in order to regen it and they are very weak to purification items. I wonder if these mechanics will make a comeback in the sequel but this time you will be the one to utilize them. I hope they make something like this, rather than treating your demon powers as a mere replacement for spirit weapon (aka, press button to power up temporarily).

    Character creation is nice but I didn't consider its absence in Nioh 1 a big deal. Your customized appearance will anyway be obscured by all the armor you'll be wearing and initial stats matter very little in Dark Souls and since Nioh uses a very similar stat system, they will matter just as little here. I also liked the fact that most (if not all) the characters in Nioh as well as the story were based on real historic events and people, so if we'll be playing a custom character this time maybe there will be less connections with real history.

    Hobo Elf I know but a dlc-salvaged skin from a couple of items you can equip at will is hardly the same as some gameplay mechanic where the player can become bestial depending on accumulated XP/blood or insight or multiplayer actions in accordance with the game's blood-frenzied/blood-mad theme.

    It changes the way you move and attack. It counts. Not being a DT is hardly a good reason to ignore the fact that the game has a beast mode and saying otherwise is just moving the goal post.

    Seems like first one but with more anime power.
    I'm OK with that.

    Don't be surprised it's in the Sengoku era again, it was one of the first things they revealed but every western outlet missed it. From the first trailer's description
    The phrase was used in a few articles since then as well.

    Well the armor won't be much of a concern because you could change the appearance in the first game.

    As for the story, William was just a Yokai hunter till the end when Kelly reveals himself. Most of the history came from historical figures he met (which fits reality where William was just a tech and logistics guy and not a fighter).

    Anjin-san, the direct inspiration for Nioh's protagonist, is actually a real historical person though.

    In late 1500's some English navy captain shipwrecked in Jap-land where he was, through many lulzy trials and tribulations, eventually recruited by the reigning daimyos of the time to serve as teacher, philosopher, ship captain and warfare instructor. There's a statue dedicated to him somewhere in Anime-land, I forget the name of where it is.

    There's a fictionalized account of Anjin-san's adventures in the land of Lolis called "Shogun", written by James Clavell. I highly recommend reading it as it's a fucking fantastic novel. There was also a mini-series made of the book starring Richard Chamberlain if I remember correctly, but I never bothered watching it. It's simply impossible that it could do justice to the amazing novel.

    Anyway, my point is that the protagonist of Nioh is directly inspired by good ole' Anjin-san. The yokai hunting and stuff is... creative license, uwu uwu.

    EDIT:
    (from William Adams page):
    ...and yes, I believe this was also the "inspiration" for that Last Samurai movie as well. Anyway, I find it hilarious that WHITE MAN TEACH BARBARIC JAPS HOW TO LIVE was actually a real thing that really happened, lmao.
