Team Ninja has announced it is remastering both Nioh and Nioh 2 for the PS5, with both games coming together in one package called The Nioh Collection. This collection will contain all the DLC for both games including the story expansions.
Alongside The Nioh Collection, Nioh 2: The Complete Edition will be available on PS4, while Nioh: The Complete Edition Remastered and Nioh 2: The Complete Edition Remastered will be available as standalone titles on PS5. The Nioh Collection will run at 4K and have upto 120 fps so the action will be super smooth.
Players who own Nioh 2 or Nioh 2: The Complete Edition on PS4 will be able to upgrade to the corresponding version on PlayStation 5 at no extra cost. However, if you have the disc version of Nioh 2 you will need a PS5 with a disc drive to get the upgrade, as there is no way to redeem the upgrade from disc to digital according to Team Ninja. Additionally, the base Nioh 2 Remastered and the Nioh 2 DLC expansions for PS5 cannot be purchased separately. Speaking of DLC, Team Ninja confirmed that the final DLC for Nioh 2, The First Samurai, will be available on December 17th.
In our review for Nioh 2, Jason wrote:
Nioh 2 builds on the excellence of the original with a fistful of new twists and ideas, from new Yokai abilities to full-on co-op through the entire game. Nioh 2 might well be the best Soulslike that isn’t a FromSoftware game, and it’s easily one of my personal contenders for Game of the Year.
Meanwhile in our original Nioh review, Dave wrote:
Do not dismiss Nioh as just another knockoff; it’s so much more than that. By taking some inspiration from others, Team Ninja do prove with a rich combat system and solid foundation that they have the ability to surprise and innovate. The vast majority of the game is a pleasure to play, despite the fact that death is around every corner. There’s a lot I’ve not even touched upon in this review, simply because it’s better experienced than told. For Koei Tecmo at least, all the effort was well worth it.
The Nioh Collection will be available on February 5th 2021 for PS5.
