Anyone spot any new weapons that weren't in the Alpha? Was hoping the Dual Swords make a return.

Prefer swords over axes.

Looking very cool.

I should play the first one at some point, right?
Naah skip the first one and I say this as a Nioh fanatic. Second game feels like more of a 1.5 sequel (expansion) than what a sequel should be like. It is really good from what I played from the alpha. It is a "prequel" so the story from the first game isn't so important. Not that the story was great in the first game.

I got burned out by the original with all the content and DLC. It is better for people to jump in on the sequel. I personally waiting for PC port this time.

The first game took me way by surprise with how much I enjoyed it. Was just looking for something to scratch the souls itch and it ended up with one of the most addictive games I've ever played. Loved the loot system and NG+ even though it became hard as balls. Think I played it for like 200 hours... more than any souls game.

Day 1.

For people who are counting early 2020 games add two more to your lists:

Persona 5 Royal
Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Early 2020 is really starting to feel like early 2017 all over again.

I played Yakuza 0, Nioh 1 and Persona 5 back to back in early 2017 and now Yakuza 7, Nioh 2 and Persona 5 Royal are coming in early 2020. Lmao.

In terms of taste it already surpassed it for me. and this isn’t taking into account of what will be releasing in the latter half of next year. I just need Bayonetta 3 and Babylon’s Fall to be confirmed for next year as well.

This is looking really nice. I'm especially digging the new yokai designs that have been shown here, they're looking really good.

First game was great but this seems like such a upgrade in every way.


Getting a bit worried about weapons though

I swear to god if they make you fight two bosses at the same time again I'm going to flip.

The trailer looks great, though.

Not America
Might as well hold off until PS5 for guaranteed stable framerate, lower price, performance and bug patches and additional content.

You know who is at the end of the trailer, if not Okatsu (the resemblance is pretty major)?

Mononoke (yes, that one):
- she has fur on her
- semi long hair
- teeth as earrings
- mask
- same time period as Nobunaga

Tks for this, will let this be my first Nioh experiences and just play Sekiro until it releases.
