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 Souls-like genre the chance to embark on a dangerous journey set during the Sengoku period of Japanese history.

The game is right around the corner, and Team Ninja announced today that its 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 him to use supernatural powers for a limited time Devil May Cry–style.

Given that NiOh 2 and DOOM: Eternal are the only two major games to debut in the first quarter of 2020 after a seemingly endless series of delays, Team Ninja couldn't have asked for a better release window. 

With NiOh 2 launching next month, the first wave of reviews for the title should hit the web 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.
