A Timed Demo for Ni-oh
Team Ninja’s intriguing take on the Dark Souls formula will be getting a time demo that will last a week, later this month.
The is based on a found script from famed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa, and follows a blond samurai who battles against demons in feudal Japan. Ni-oh has been in development for over ten years now and we’re starting to see a really interesting final project.
Set in a time of civil war in Japan, Nioh not only incorporates classic elements such as samurai and supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore, but also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team NINJA, the team that defined brutal action games.
The demo will be available from April 26 and will run straight through to May 5th. Those who finish the demo will earn exclusive DLC for the full game to be available at launch.
