As you should be well aware, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Ni-Oh is releasing this March. To the eagle eyed viewer you would of also noticed a Digital Deluxe edition that incorporates a Season Pass for DLC content. Much like how the first game dealt with it, Ni-Oh 2 will have three main chapters. Not much is known other than that each Chapter will pre-date the 1555 starting date of the main game.
You can read the full overview from Team Ninja below:
We have three major downloadable content releases planned, with each focusing on a different storyline that pre-dates the events of Nioh 2, promising hours of additional gameplay that will provide plenty of challenge for those thirsting for more.
Similar to the original Nioh, players can expect new weapons, new combat abilities and new characters, with each downloadable content incorporating both multiple main and sub-missions.
The three downloadable content packs are included in Nioh 2’s Season Pass, which forms part of the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition (now available for pre-order). In addition to the main game and downloadable content, you’ll also get premium in-game items such as the Demon Horde armor set and Kodama Netsuke Charm.
So at least along with the new chapters you’ll be given a bevy of new weapons, characters and locations to explore and enjoy.
Ni-Oh 2 launches exclusively for Playstation 4 on March 13th worldwide!

It has been a tradition for a long while now with Playstation that each month if you are a subscriber to their Playstation Plus service, along with being able to play online with other users, you will be able to download “free” games. The month of November however offers a goodie for those who have yet to experience this masterpiece.
Ni-Oh is now available as a free download for all those who subscribe to Playstation Plus, and will remain yours as long as you are part of the service. We gave Ni-Oh our KOEI Tecmo Warriors Game of the Year 2017 award, and we still think it is one of the best KT games of recent years.
So if you are a PS Plus subscriber and have yet to play Ni-Oh, what are you waiting for? Get downloading, and one bit of advice, push through the early levels and the game will have it’s grip on all your free time. You have been warned.

Ni-Oh’s second of three DLC’s has been finally officially unveiled. Titled Ni-Oh: Defiant Honor, the new story missions will focus on the Sanada and the infamous Osaka Castle. As Yukimura Sanada still holds the Toyotomi in his heart, he prepared for battle against the mighty Togugawa from his undefeatable ward, the Sanada Maru. William, alongside past DLC comrade Masamune Date, head out to take on the immense force of the Sanada.
Team Ninja promise a bevy of new additions to this DLC also. With a new weapon type, the “Tonfa”, along with new armour, new guardian spirits, new magic items and new Yokai foes to challenge. Along with this there will be new sub-missions and new higher difficulties.
Ni-Oh: Defiant Honor will release for PS4 on 25th July, for £7.99/$9.99 individually or free with the game’s Season Pass.
As a side-note. We hope if things go to plan to be able to do a livestream on the day of release of this DLC, so if you aren’t ready to take the plunge, join us and we shall take on the Sanada together!

We have a bevy of new information for you today in regards to the upcoming release of Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3! Along with the screenshots we uploaded just moments ago, new features have been confirmed along with a lot more!
~The entire Story revolves around What-If scenarios, such as what if Takeda Shingen succeeded at Joraku, or if Imagawa Yoshimoto succeeded at Okehazamanotatakai? The story unfolds with these events happening.
~Also depending on your relationship with officers and rulers, these What-If scenarios will change (for better or worse).
~The switching of characters feature from the original Chronicles game makes a return, with battles being crucial for you to switch between numerous officers on the battlefield.
~It is possible to stun enemy officers that are of a lower level than you a lot easier. Quite like the three officer types in Dynasty Warriors 8, lower grade officers can be defeated easier and stunned much more easily.
~”Renbukan Mode” makes a return (first features in Chronicle 2nd), which is quite like a “horde” mode where you face off against wave after wave of soldiers. The faster you defeat each wave the higher your score reaches.
~Godspeed Actions and Secret Musou attacks will be making their way from Samurai Warriors 4.
~A new “Warfare Skills” addition has been made, where you can consume a certain amount of your “Skills Gauge” to perform special actions around the battlefield.
We’ll be sure to report more information as it appears. This is certainly looking like one hell of a portable exclusive title, and we really do hope it see’s a Western release, only if because the first Chronicles game was very over-looked and an extremely fun game on the 3DS.
What are your thoughts of the game so far? Would you like to play this on your 3DS/Vita? Let us know!
In the Famitsu leak earlier this week it was revealed that Sengoku Musou Chronicle 3 (Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3) was in development by KOEI-Tecmo for both the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita.
Officially announced now through Famitsu, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 will be making it’s mark on both handhelds later in 2014. The game offers numerous features, such as new “Hyper Attacks” and “Rage Attacks” that were introduced in Samurai Warriors 4.
They have also said it will offer over 50 warlords (with a vague hint of at least one new character) from Samurai Warriors 4 and no doubt be using it’s gameplay engine.
Other features include increased Edit Slots for your customisable characters. There has also been a reveal on the take on the story, which is a fictional twist on it’s usual history focused take. Where you will be fighting in battles with a “what if” spin on it all.
New modes and actions have also been boasted to be included, but no elaboration on that yet.
What do you think of this reveal? Do you hope it would make it to the West even though the second didn’t? Would you get it for Nintendo’s 3DS or Playstation’s Vita? Let us know!
