Nioh patch 1.21.03 is now available, implementing proper mouse + keyboard controls

As promised, Team Ninja released today a new patch for Nioh that adds proper mouse and keyboard controls to it. This is something we’ve asking from the moment Nioh came out, and we are happy that Team Ninja has finally heard our requests.

Thanks to this patch, players can now use the mouse in order to control the in-game camera. We’ve tested this patch and can say that there is no mouse acceleration or smoothing issues. Team Ninja has managed to offer proper raw mouse input, so kudos to the team.

Moreover, this patch adds options to bind all of the keyboard keys. Unfortunately, though, the game still displays gamepad icons/buttons instead of the keyboard keys. This is something that Team Ninja should address in the future, however you can at least now – thanks to the new controls options – know what key does what.

Nioh’s patch 1.21.03 also fixes various other miscellaneous bugs, as well as an issue¬†with analogue stick sensitivity.

Steam will download this patch – which is 30MB in size – the next time you start the client, and you can view its complete changelog below.
