Yesterday saw extensive gameplay for Nioh 2’s first paid DLC The Tengu’s Disciple. Along with a new boss fight, the new Splitstaff was also showcased in all of its long-range, pole-vaulting glory. A new story trailer is now available though and it provides a few details on the plot.
Taking place in a new region, Yashima, players will travel back in time to the Heian period’s closing years. Along with battling new enemies, like the giant Yokai crab, the DLC will look at the relationship between Otakemaru and Sohayamaru (that strangle whistle that’s been teased till now). New Guardian Spirits are also teased and it should be interesting to see what benefits they offer.
Nioh 2: The Tengu’s Disciple is out today on PS4. If you’ve yet to dive into the base game, check out our review for it here. The DLC’s launch will also bring new difficulty levels which should be available to all players. Stay tuned for more details on that front soon.
