Developer Team Ninja Has Confirmed That The Highly Anticipated NIOH 2 Has Officially Gone Gold

The wait is almost over, as the long-awaited sequel to 2017's NiOh is coming exclusively to PS4 in a month's time, giving fans of the so-called Souls-like genre the chance to embark on a dangerous journey during the Sengoku period of Japanese history.

While the game is right around the corner, Team Ninja announced today that the studio's next big thing has gone gold — which means that the project is set and ready to be released all around the world in the next few weeks. 

NiOh 2 takes place 45 years before the main events of the first instalment. The prequel will introduce players to an all-new protagonist, who's half human and half Yokai (demon in English), which allows hit to to harness and use supernatural powers for a limited time, borrowing some gameplay mechanics from Capcom's Devil May Cry.

Given that NiOh 2 and DOOM: Eternal are the only two major games to launch in the first half of the year after a seemingly never-ending series of delayed video games, Team Ninja couldn't have asked for a better release window. 

With NiOh 2 hitting stores next month, the first wave of reviews for the title should be with us relatively soon.

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.
