Here's the Gamescom trailer.





2015 Updates


- Coming 2016, PS4 exclusive
- TGS 2015 Trailer:



NIOH is being developed as a “Dark Sengoku Action RPG.” The stage is set during the last years of the Sengoku period of Japan, with a blonde-haired protagonist with special powers named William Adams, who travels the lands.

Here are some notes from the interview (Source):

  • Ni-Oh was originally developed as a launch title for the PlayStation 3.

  • The focus was to push the action elements instead of focusing on the RPG parts.

  • Koei Tecmo continued working on the game behind the scenes, even while hearing people say “you guys just announced it haven’t even made anything, right?”

  • The game runs at 60fps.

  • It was decided to make it into a console exclusive title as Koei Tecmo wish to be able to use the PlayStation 4’s quality to show the world more of Japan’s yokai culture.

  • There will be giant yokai boss fights.

  • Koei Tecmo are currently thinking of some kind of opportunity that will allow players to directly try out Ni-Oh before it releases.

  • Famitsu magazine has a corner where fans can voice out their most anticipated games. Thanks to Ni-Oh being on it for the past 10 years, it gave Koei Tecmo the drive to continue developing the game without stopping.


Additional Info from TGS stage demo:

  • The game is specifically designed for trial and error. Developers expect players to retry segments multiple times.

  • William can swap between different weapons in real-time. He starts with the katana. Other weapons include a spear. Every weapon has their own traits to differentiate from the other.

  • A stamina meter limits the number of actions that can be preformed at a time.

  • Armor can be found and equipped. It customizes William's appearance.

  • Spiritual energy drops from fallen foes. These spirits can fortify William.

  • Shrines are scattered across the map. Players can access these points to level up William.

  • If players are connected online, they can revive other fallen players.

I hate how at the end it profiled Koei as a company that knows only to release a hack 'n slash game over and over again with some modifications every single time!
Ni-Oh better be a damn good game and change the minds of those sh**ty people that think that their game ratings are better than any other gamer's ratings.

I heard about this on the Koei Forums too. Its a hack n slash game in Japan. It looks amazing, but I wish it was online with the 360 and not just exlusive for the PS3.

That doesn't always happen, they could quite easily keep working at it, and then release another somewhat poor game graphically, and gameplay wise.

The game is still on the delay... Well there's so less news about it, looks like it's been developed really slow, well we'll see then!

KOEI has hack-n-slash Samurai Warriors and Capcom has hack-n-slash Sengoku BASARA, maybe this time it's time for KOEI to take the revenge, like Capcom has Onimusha, KOEI has Ni-OH!! :D

I seriously hope this is gonna be Action game like Onimusha one :P

GS was right. DW DS is the example on how crappy it is as it announced many years ago.

I'm not double posting btw I just found my previous post was like 3 months ago and well we'll see more of this game on this year Tokyo Game Show 07 or E3 if there is! :)

And I don't think this is a hack and slash type of game!

Look at the trailer:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIp9Nw5HHso

"Hair of blazing gold... eyes of deepest blue..."
"Driven by destiny, he travels to the ends of the earth"

So this is something like "The Last Samurai", a western warrior in Sengoku period.
