After over a year of anticipation, Nioh 2 finally has a release date for next year.
Hot off the heels of announcing that the original Nioh will be made available next month on PS4 as part of November’s PS Plus lineup, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja today have revealed the release date for the upcoming Nioh 2.
Announced via the PlayStation Blog, it was revealed that Nioh 2 will be arriving on PS4 next year on March 13, 2020. This is yet another title that joins the already-stacked slate of releases in the first portion of 2020 with other high-profile games such as Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and DOOM Eternal also coming out within the first few months of the year.
To help tide fans over until release, an open beta for Nioh 2 is set to finally kick off later this week. The beta is set to run from November 1 until November 10 and will be available to download for free from the PlayStation Store. Players will be able to explore the Interim and Sunomata locations in this beta. If you succeed in beating the beta, you’ll then be rewarded with the Kamaitachi Helmet to utilize in the full release of Nioh 2 next year.
By all accounts, Nioh 2 is shaping up to be pretty stellar based on what we’ve seen so far. I for one am looking forward to diving into the beta here soon just to see what Team Ninja has up its sleeve in this highly-anticipated sequel.
