Koei Tecmo’s Nioh is one of the most exciting action games of the holiday season. In this post-Dark Souls 3 world, Team Ninja is stepping up to deliver its rendition of the formula, bringing the dark fantasy home to a much more horrific Japanese setting.
An alpha demo released earlier this year. Naturally, as an alpha build, it was plagued with a few problems. Graphical glitches, balancing issues. In fact, the game even asked if you wanted higher quality graphics or a steady frame-rate because both would have been impossible.
In spite of these issues, though, the reception of the demo was better than expected, leaving Dark Souls fans excited with a place to flee now that their series has been put on ice for a few years. Koei Tecmo promised improvement, and it is looking for more feedback before the final release.
If you’re down for a dark and intense Japanese action title, then this is where you want to look. I realize most gamers will be firing up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided today, but those of you wanting a bit of free entertainment, I suggest you take a peek here.
