Nioh 2 - The First Samurai

It’s been a busy day for Koei Tecmo with the announcement of Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition coming to PC and The Nioh Collection announced for PS5. Current players on PS4 should also take note though – the third and final DLC, The First Samurai, is out on December 17th. It will offer new missions and a new difficulty which Team Ninja promises will “give even the most seasoned veterans a run for their money.”

While details on new weapons, Guardian Spirits and so on have yet to be revealed, a few story details were provided. The protagonist goes back to the past yet again, visiting “the land of the fabled youth that defeated an oni.” We’ll learn more about Otakemaru, who the first samurai really was and Sohayamaru’s secret.

More importantly, the protagonist’s story will finally come to an end. It’s been a bittersweet journey but it should be interesting to see how things pan out. Nioh 2 currently has two other DLC available – The Tengu’s Disciple and Darkness in the Capital – and is available for PS4. Stay tuned for more details on The First Samurai in the coming months.
