Nioh 2 (PC) is the continuation of Nioh, the soulslike action-RPG game released in 2017, developed by Team Ninja. The game is characterized by a fast-paced combat system and high difficulty level. In Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition players take on the role of half-man, half-demon fighting with legendary creatures taken straight out of the Japanese folklore. Graphically the game has been significantly improved in comparison to its predecessors.
The action of the game takes place in Japna, during the Sengoku period, namely the 15th and 16th centuries. The Country of Cherry Blossom is not only troubled by crippling wars but also hordes of yōkai, mythical monsters from Japanese legends who desire to take control over the realm of men. The Events pictured in the game takes place before the happenings of the original Nioh. The player takes on the role of a character known as Hide – half-man, half-yōkai, traveling through the land, and fighting demons that pose danger to regular people.
