Ni-Oh's Upcoming Alpha Demo with DLC Bonus!
PlayStation®4 [Action Adventure, Hack and Slash] Release: Q4 2016 (TBA)
Those who remember the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo will recall the hype behind this historical action adventure; in preparation for it's canceled PS3 2006 release, a pre-rendered CG trailer showed Ni-Oh as a game about a blond-haired samurai - the offspring of a Western Woman and Japanese Lord set during the Warring States Era of Japan - and was based on an unfinished script of renowned Japanese film auteur, Akira Kurosawa.
Over a decade later, the finalized form of Nioh is now a difficult and dark samurai action game inspired by the original with supernatural elements designed specifically to incite trial and error; based on the reveal trailer and this description, one can almost say this is Samurai Dark Souls, Akira Kurosawa style! With the added flair of Team Ninja's dedication to perfect combat, Ni-Oh is looking to be a brutal treat for those who enjoy challenge in video games.
With hype building around this masocore title - yes, new vidya jargon fresh from Japan meaning masochistic core - Koei Tecmo is releasing the Alpha Demo later this month, available worldwide on the PlayStation Store from April 26 to May 5!
Not only will players have get a chance to enjoy a taste of this "new" IP, if they finish the demo, they will be able to download the "Mark Of The Conqueror DLC," which will allow for a special DLC unlock for when the full game launches later in the year.
And from Team Ninja themselves: “We also want to hear your feedback on the game! We will hold an online survey while the demo is available so let us know what you think and how we can make it even more fun.” With this type of support,
Ni-Oh is really looking like it's going to be a great game to look forward to, especially if the Dev team are so open about improving the experience! Can't wait~~~~~
