KOEI TECMO AND SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA LLC. ANNOUNCE WESTERN RELEASE OF NIOH
EXCLUSIVELY ON PLAYSTATION®4
Epic Samurai-centric Action RPG Combines All-Star Talents of
Kou Shibusawa, Hisashi Koinuma, and Team NINJA
Hertfordshire, 07 December 2015 – At the recent PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, CA, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and KOEI TECMO announced that Nioh, a dark, samurai-centric action RPG, will be coming to the west exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Nioh has been in development under the direction of Kou Shibusawa, Hisashi Koinuma, and Team NINJA.
In Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Known as Yokai, these demons inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players will also face off with other samurai in supernatural sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy.
Offering a deep and original storyline that takes place during the Warring States Period of Japanese history alongside strategic sword-fighting action, Nioh will challenge players in a way that makes every mission and accomplishment feel earned and worthwhile. More information on this comprehensive, action-packed RPG experience will be released in the coming months.

After just viewing the trailer, yeah, I see what Melmoth was on about. Stick a pair of red dungarees and a cap on her, and a mustache. (2 Hours ago)
Irony is they are basing the film off of a reboot where you don't actually raid many tombs. The female rambo shooty shooty run and jump shit translates well, though. (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Well, that's practically what Lara is now from the recent games. Anyway, most common traits of reboots in Hollywood boils down everything you knew about the original into a simplified trope (3 Hours ago)
i just think it's an awful idea to base a movie on a game that had a terrible story, a terrible script and characters devoid of personality...including the protagonist. why would someone do that. lol (3 Hours ago)
but at least she isn't doing that super exaggerated breathy "acting" luddington does in the games (3 Hours ago)
the woman just looks so wooden as well. which is probably why she did well playing a robot in ex machina lol. (3 Hours ago)
