Major Dark Souls vibe detected.
Not a lot’s been heard about Team Ninja’s Ni-Oh, a difficult hack and slash adventure game that was expected to release for the PS4 this year after its announcement at Tokyo Game Show 2015. However, the developer finally released footage from behind closed doors at the event, showcasing Ni-Oh in all of its glory.
The project is fairly reminiscent of From Software’s Dark Souls series, though Ni-Oh takes place in a Feudal Japan-like setting (and is based off of a script by the legendary Akira Kurosawa). Considering that Team Ninja is also the studio behind Ninja Gaiden, it knows enough about making brutally difficult hack and slash titles.
At this point, Ni-Oh is still slated to release in 2016 for the PlayStation 4. More information will likely be coming at E3 2016 or even from TGS 2016 so stay tuned and let us know what you think of the gameplay footage in the comments below.
