KT is being considerate, allowing me to play plenty of Cyberpunk, Bloodlines 2 and Dying Light 2 in early 2020 before I bounce back to soulslikes with Nioh 2 and Elden Ring.
Yasuke should definitely be in this, it would be a good scene when he first saw him.Indeed. I'm even hoping maybe a younger version of Yasuke will show up, when he was in Nobunaga's service. Considering his role in the original game was pretty small, all things considered, it'd be nice to see him have more shine when he was in his "prime".
Plus, it tends to be Koei's aim to try and appropriately "theme" their games around when a major figure(s) from Japanese history/lore gets extra attention through Taiga dramas and the like. And well, the Yasuke film starring Chadwick Boseman is in development...
She looks based on another Japanese actress called Haru. They are doing the same thing than Okatsu (who was based on Emi Takei)
You really don't. Going by the Beta, Nioh 2 feels more like an Extension/Update to the first than a full Sequel (which is not a negative for me).
Oh, there's no doubt that
Since receiving feedback from the closed alpha session, we have been diligently working on the game with great enthusiasm. To be honest, we’ve had to overcome many trials and errors during the process of designing Yokai action mechanics such as “special moves,” “Yokai moves,” and the visual presentation of the “Dark Realm.” However, we are now quite satisfied with where we are at. It goes without saying that the improvements won’t stop until launch and we’ll continue to keep you updated with our progress. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months, and please enjoy the exciting new demo for TGS as well as the batch of new content we’ve prepared.”
Shit i missed it. I thought the presentation was sheduled for day 3, oh well will watch the recap on youtube.
There's barely a story in the first game. It's basically just "go say hi to this historical figure while chasing the bad guy who has corrupted somebody / some place, now you gotta fix it" over and over.
Oh, there's no doubt thatwill be here. He's too critical to Nobunaga's story, otherwise.Mitsuhide
I'm just hoping that they go into further detail about how Nioh's version of Mitsuhide felt so compelled to betray his lord. Having a conviction that Nobunaga's Ambition(tm) will generate more strife for Japan, when the dude was technically so close to uniting Japan, and thus, ending the wars, as it was? There had to be more to it than that, and I still believe the whole "Inheritance" mission only scraped the surface.
And if this game has any possible time travel elements in the mix, it could only make things more interesting.
Nioh is in my top 5 during this generation.
Seriously, I don't know of any game that has taken into account so much community feedback as Nioh so I'm super jazzed about the sequel!
Don't forget Elden ring. =)
I'm half tempted to wait until next-gen to pick up the games I really want on this list (FFVII, Nioh 2, tlou2, cyberpunk, ghost of tsushima) - assuming backwards compatibility/some sort of enhancement is a thing. Would be the sweetest pseudo launch lineup of all time, not even counting whatever we inevitably get as actual launch games.
puuh. There‘s just too much to play right now and I dunno if it‘s a good idea to play the first game right before 2.
