Nioh: Complete Edition releases in a few days on the PC and according to streamers, it does not feature any support for mouse. While the game does support the keyboard, Team Ninja has completely dropped the ball and did not implement any mouse support in it.
As YouTube’s ‘The Outerhaven Productions’ replied when asked whether the PC version of Nioh: Complete Edition supports the mouse.
“There is no M+K. The game does not support the mouse at all. It’s either controller or keyboard. No mouse.”
Other streamers have also confirmed that the game does not support mouse at all.
Nioh: Complete Edition is a third-person game and no; controller is not the best control scheme for these games. Take for example Shadow of War. Below you can find a video in which we play the PC version with mouse+keyboard. And as you can see, everything is fluid and smooth. In fact, combat becomes easier as we can more quickly examine the area around us for enemies. The Witcher 3 is also another game that works like a charm with mouse+keyboard. So lets put to rest the idea that third-person action games are meant to be played with a controller.
It’s just sad that a 2017 game does not support mouse on the PC. What’s also sad here is that Nioh is a game that a lot of PC gamers were looking forward to. Well done sabotaging your own game Team Ninja.
Nioh: Complete Edition releases on Steam on November 7th!
