Sony and Team Ninja announce a “Nioh Collection” for early February 2021. Suitable for the fourth anniversary of the franchise. These are remastered editions of “Nioh” and “Nioh 2” for the PlayStation 5. The popular action role-playing game first appeared in 2017 for the PlayStation 4, followed a year later by another title in the series, Nioh 2. The video games for the PS5 are to be sold individually and as a bundle, with 4K and 120fps support.
The samurai role-playing games Nioh and Nioh 2 remind many gamers of “Dark Souls”. This is undoubtedly due to the few, but all the more difficult to defeat opponents. But Nioh offers so much more: The video game combines the true history of Japan with exciting legends. The first part of the game tells the story of the seafarer William Adams, who traveled to Japan in 1600 and found himself in the middle of a war between warring clans. Nioh 2 is a prequel to the first samurai adventure and is about the Sengoku period, which is set between 1477 and 1573.
On February 5, 2021, the following digital RPG titles will be released for the PS5 to celebrate the 4th anniversary of the franchise:
- “Nioh 2: The Complete Edition” - For the PlayStation 4
- “Nioh Remastered: The Complete Edition” - For the PlayStation 5
- “Nioh 2 Remastered: The Complete Edition” - For the PlayStation 5
- “The Nioh Collection” - For the PlayStation 5
Tom Lee, the creative director of Team Ninja, expressed himself emotionally in a PlayStation blog post: It is sad for the players, but also for the development team, that the last chapter of the action role-playing game has opened with Nioh 2. For this reason, the team would like to thank all of its fans, as a token of appreciation, with a revised version of both games for the next-gen console.
While many of you may be sad to see the story of Nioh 2 arriving at its final chapter (I know I am), I'd like to thank all of our fans that have been by our side along this crazy journey from the release of the first Nioh right up until this milestone. On behalf of Team Ninja, I want to express our sincere gratitude for supporting the Nioh series and our team through this long and wonderful ride.
As a token of our appreciation, we thought there was no better way to celebrate the Nioh series, one very near and dear to our hearts, than remastering the entire story for both veterans and new players alike to enjoy utilizing the latest hardware.
