    Game overview

    Survive a brutal blend of Japanese myth, legend and history 

    Master the lethal arts of the samurai as a mysterious half-human, half-supernatural Yokai warrior, in this challenging action RPG sequel.

    Explore violent Sengoku-era Japan and the deadly Dark Realm, both plagued with grotesque, merciless demons.

    Unsheathe your deadly weapons and cut down all enemies in your path using a revamped combat system and the ability to transform into a full Yokai to unleash devastating paranormal powers.


    Brutal weapons and enemies

    Take down a host of deadly new Yokai, seasoned samurai warriors and gargantuan boss monsters that litter Team Ninja's stylised vision of Japan's early Sengoku period. 

    Cut down enemies with the transforming Switchglaive, versatile hatchets, or many of the returning weapons from Nioh - including DLC favourites, the Tonfa and Odachi.

    Each weapon comes with a massively expanded skill tree allowing you to customise your counters, movesets and playstyle, while Yokai enemies can now drop Soul Cores on defeat, allowing you to wield their demonic abilities yourself.


    A world of war and demons

    Explore tense, sprawling environments that draw inspiration from both Japanese history and traditional Japanese mythology. Cross swords with real-life historical figures and the supernatural spirits of Japan's rich folklore.

    In the service of charismatic leader Oda Nobunaga, battle your way across Japan facing off with fearsome clans and embattled warlords. From towering castles, to sleepy forest villages and poison-filled caves, each new area will test your skills in different ways.  


    Forge a legend of your own

    Create and customise every detail of your character, carefully shaping their appearance, choosing their preferred weapons, style of combat and attire. 

    Visit the blacksmith to refashion and reforge your armour, train in the dojo to unlock new skills, master the arts of Onmyo magic, or practise the deadly tools of ninjutsu - mix, match and refine to become a warrior unlike any other.


    Unleash your inner demon

    As a half-human, half Yokai, channel your inner demonic strength with a whole host of new skills, both innate and adopted from other demons you encounter. 

    When these abilities are not enough, give in to your dark side and transform to Yokai form, wielding powerful new weapons and combos and draining the spirit from your enemies.
