The Half-Human Protagonist of NIOH 2 Faces an Unending War in This Spectacular Story Trailer

Sony has released an all-new story trailer for Team Ninja's highly anticipated NiOh 2, this time putting the spotlight on the upcoming sequel's unique world, where "monsters and evil spirits stalk a land of natural beauty and menacing peril" — and unending war, too.

Fans of the first game probably remember its main protagonist — William Adams — an Irish navigator who mysteriously ends up in Japan to face the ghosts of the past. Although William won't be the main hero of the PlayStation 4-exclusive NiOh 2, the war-torn Japan will still be.

Unlike Willian, the sequel's protagonist will be half human and half Yokai (or demon), which basically means that he's able to harness and use supernatural powers.

Practically speaking, turning into a Yokai will grant the player completely new, insanely devastating abilities — giving gamers the chance to slay terrible creatures and monsters Devil May Cry-style. 

Without further ado, take a look at the new trailer for NiOh 2 — releasing this March down below:

Master the art of the samurai in this brutal masocore RPG… for death is coming. Journey to 1555 Japan, a country gripped in endless warfare where monsters and evil spirits stalk a land of natural beauty and menacing peril. Hunt down your enemies as a rogue mercenary wielding the supernatural powers of the mythical Yokai. Can you survive the treacherous Sengoku era and the new and terrifying Dark Realm?

Nioh 2 is coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 on March 13, 2020.
