Team Ninja recently hosted a live stream for Nioh 2’s upcoming DLC The Tengu’s Disciple, in which the new staff weapon was showcased. Various previews have also gone live courtesy of publications like IGN Japan and Famitsu, offering a look at the new areas and one new boss. Check them out below.
The new staff is particularly interesting because its end points can detach and hit foes at longer range. It’s also possible to vault up and strike on the way down. In terms of mobility and combos, there’s definitely a lot of potential regardless of one’s play-style.
Then there’s the new boss, who can inflict a hefty amount of damage for those who get too close. In an interesting twist, defeating this boss leads to it joining forces with you, at least temporarily. Whatever the story may be, this is likely only the tip of all the challenges that await.
Nioh 2: The Tengu’s Disciple is out tomorrow for PS4. Along with a new weapon and bosses, you can also expect new armor, Guardian Spirits, and additional difficulty levels.
