Nioh Beta Coming To PS4 In August

Koei Tecmo has launched the latest trailer for upcoming action RPG, Nioh. The two minute vid shows Nioh protagonist, William, crossing swords with a menagerie of demonic nasties as he explores a war-torn island besieged by supernatural beings.


It’s shaping up to be one of 2016’s best sleeper hit and signals a smart change in direction for developer Team Ninja. Those who didn’t manage to play the recent alpha demo will get another chance with a beta version set for August.

Be sure to check out our early thoughts on the game.

  1. Great stuff, i’m looking forward to checking out the improvements they’re making.

  2. Wait…

    That voiceover is in Irish.

    What’s a Japanese development team working on a samurai monster hunter style game doing using Gaeilge?

    Wait, those God-forsaken islands mentioned in the trailer… Are we getting a Japanese game based in Ireland? I now want it.
