KOEI Tecmo has shared some new details and screenshots for Nioh 2 – Complete Edition. Nioh 2 – Complete Edition will feature the base game, as well as its three DLCs. Also note that since I haven’t played the game, I don’t really know whether the following screenshots contain any spoilers.
Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition allows players to enjoy its gripping narrative through the eyes of their own half-human, half-yokai custom character. Players will begin their journey as a mercenary for hire in Mino province. After succumbing to darkness whilst losing control of their yokai powers, the protagonist encounters a wandering ‘Spirit Stone’ merchant by the name of Tokichiro – who soothed the protagonist’s abilities with his mystical goods. As they both set out in search for the next Spirit Stone buyer, fate throws them into an encounter with Oda Nobunaga himself. The two set off to take the Sengoku period by storm, raising the curtain on the tale of “Hideyoshi”.
Once players finish the base campaign they will be able to continue their adventure in the DLC expansion packs. These packs are “The Tengu’s Disciple”, “Darkness in the Capital”, and “The First Samurai”. These expansions will also include a wealth of new weaponry, armour, and challenging new foes.
Before their journey begins, players will be able to select from one of 16 different weapon types. According to the press release, each weapon will offer its own unique playstyle. The two weapons introduced in the DLC expansions — the Splitstaff and the Fists — will be available from the start of the game alongside the Swords, Dual Swords, Spears, Switchglaives, Axes & Hammers, Kusarigamas, Odachis, Tonfas, Hatchets, Bows, Hand Cannons, Rifles, Yokai Weapons and Blessed Weapons. The variety of selectable weapons all feature their own in-depth skill trees. Thus, the game promises to offer deep flexibility for players to adapt the playstyle of each weapon.
Nioh 2 Complete Edition releases on February 5th, 2021.
