PlayStation Blog has confirmed that Team Ninja’s “Samurai Dark Souls” game Nioh will becoming to the the PlayStation 4 in North America this year, and fans will be able to play it before the month is out.
A new trailer states that the game’s official demo will be coming to PlayStation Network on April 26. General Producer Kou Shibusawa hopes that everyone will keep it on their radars because, my goodness, Team Ninja has been working on this game forever.
Ten years have passed since Nioh was originally announced. Even during all that time though, gamers would always ask about it at events like E3 and Gamescom. We always felt support from the gamers around the world for this title.
Now, finally, Nioh — a game created with the entire power of Koei Tecmo — will be released in 2016. In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month. We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action — Nioh.
It seems like we’re all wondering too much about Final Fantasy XV‘s performance after all this time, but it is not alone in making a grand overdue release on the consoles this year. Both have been in development since the closing days of the PlayStation 2!
Be sure to check out Nioh when it launches for the PlayStation 4 this year. Team Ninja is looking forward to your feedback when the demo launches on April 26.
