It’s time to go slay some demons, Samurai (and ninjas), because the Nioh Collection has been announced to be coming soon to PS5 libraries. Next February, fans of the brutally beautiful franchise will be able to enjoy the world of Nioh on the latest generation of systems alongside a few new tweaks to make the experience even better.
In a recent PlayStation Blog post, Tom Lee, Team Ninja’s creative director, revealed that the conclusion of Nioh 2’s story is dropping next month with the third and final DLC for the game. The First Samurai will be launching on December 17 and will tasks players to “take on some of the most challenging missions and formidable foes in the entire series, along with an added difficulty level that will give even the most seasoned veterans a run for their money. While you still have some time to prepare for this climactic expansion, I wanted to provide a bit of story context to give you a hint as to what awaits you in this next DLC installment.”
The upcoming story will take players to the past as a Visitor once more to the place that their mother has talked about earlier in the game. Going back to a time of “the fabled youth that defeated an oni.” The truth behind the very first Samurai will be revealed with a deeper look into Otakemaru’s past.
As mentioned, this will be the conclusion of the Nioh 2 narrative, promising to be a “climatic end” to a story that has enthralled many.
