This past weekend has been jam packed with new KOEI Tecmo announcements and information for their recently released and upcoming titles. The first major DLC pack for Ni-Oh 2 launched back in July, and now we know the continuation of the story will be arriving next month.
Ni-Oh 2: Darkness in the Capital will be launching October 15th worldwide. You can read the full details given via the Playstation blog below:
Darkness in the Capital features new storylines, overwhelmingly powerful new bosses, tricky new Yokai, new Guardian Spirits, skills, Ninjutsu, Onmyo Magic and Soul Cores. And to top it all off, this new chapter will present electrifying new armor sets and a weapon that fans of hand-to-hand combat will surely relish.
Now I’d hate to leave you guys completely in the dark on this upcoming DLC expansion. So, let me throw out some clues and story details to give you a taste of what’s on the horizon for this next installment.
In order to unravel the mysteries surrounding the history of the Sohayamaru, our protagonist ventures to Kyoto City and discovers a shrine furnished with an old worn-out box. Upon inspection, the Sohayamaru once again shines brilliantly and the protagonist is whisked away to the middle of the Heian Period, landing in an ancient version of the capital.
Contrary to its name “Heian Palace,” which means peace and tranquility, ancient Kyoto was terrorized by countless Yokai during this time period. However, there existed many heroes who were brave enough to oppose these demons. Among them were the most preeminent demon slayer and the strongest sorcerer in history, along with their subordinates and colleagues fighting at their side.
Our protagonist joins forces with these famous heroes in order to quell the unrest and destruction caused by the Yokai hordes, while learning more about the connections between an even more distant past and the present time period from which they came.
Nioh 2 and it’s first DLC are out now exclusively on Playstation 4.

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.

It is etching ever closer to the launch date of Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV in the West, with it launching on February 28th for PS4 and PC via Steam. Though in a recent interview with famed Japanese magazine Famitsu, producer Kazuhiro Echigoya says we have a lot of content to look forward to with the game.
During the interview it was confirmed that indeed a Power-Up Kit will be releasing for the game sometime in the future. It will add more content and be a big extension to the base game. Kazuhiro-san also states that certain content which usually would arrive with the Power-Up Kit – such as Editors and “more” – will be arriving before hand as individual DLC.
There is no news if the DLC or the Power-Up Kit will make its way to the West. Although we did receive the Power-Up Kit for Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII a long while after called “Fame & Strategy Expansion”.
