It has been a few months now since Ni-Oh 2 launched back in March, and we finally have news on the first of a three part DLC arc for the title. The first chapter is called The Tengu’s Disciple, and will be a prequel to the events of the main game focusing on the first samurai. You can read the full description from Team Ninja below:
We’re planning to release a total of three sizable and badass downloadable content batches over the next several months to provide you guys with additional challenges to keep you on the edge-of-your-seat. There will be new storylines, new yokai, ferocious new bosses, Guardian Spirits, new skills, fresh armor, and a new weapon that alters the performance of skills outside of set stances.
On top of all that, new difficulty levels and end-game content will be added to allow the campaign to grow longer, giving you guys even more content to start your summer gaming adventures! I’m happy to announce that the first of these thrilling downloadable content packs called “The Tengu’s Disciple” will kick off on July 30. Also, as an added bonus we have prepared brand new wallpapers inspired by the upcoming downloadable content to keep you guys motivated as you wait for the new chapter to arrive in July. We hope you will be pleased with what you see!
Speaking of the upcoming downloadable content chapters, here are some clues and context into the storyline of the continuing Nioh 2 saga:
A great battle has taken place at Yashima in the late Heian period. As a visitor in Yashima, our protagonist finds a shrine possessing a mysterious whistle called the Sohayamaru. Upon inspection, the whistle shines radiantly as the shadow of Yokai can be seen lurking in the background. It is revealed that whenever wars take place, heroes wielding the Sohayamaru will head into battle in order to restore peace back into this land.
More in-depth details regarding “The Tengu’s Disciple” will be released in the coming months, so please stay tuned.
Ni-Oh 2’s The Tengu’s Disciple will be launching July 30th worldwide as a stand alone DLC or as part of the Season Pass. Ni-Oh 2 is out now exclusively for the Playstation 4.
