Final Fantasy XV isn’t the only game that’s been in development for a decade getting a release soon. It will be joined by Koei Tecmo’s Nioh, which is now confirmed for a full release on Feb. 9, 2017.

Nioh originally entered development early in the previous console generation, around the same time Final Fantasy XV was first referred to as Final Fantasy XIII Versus, and it has undergone quite a makeover since then. Originally, the game was modeled after Koei Tecmo’s Ninja Gaiden series, but after the popularity of that genre started to wane, it remodeled itself in the image of Dark Souls.

And the results have been surprisingly good! So far, both the alpha and the beta demos have been well received in the West, and many seem eager to see if it holds up now that From Software’s Dark Souls franchise is taking a break. Even the release date, Feb. 9, looks to fill in the gaps as those games often released in the first quarter of the year as well!

Don’t think for a second that’s a coincidence!

Nioh will be released for the PlayStation 4 on Feb. 9. I had considered it a dark horse for 2016, but it seems that 2017 has claimed yet another high-potential victim. Oh well…
