Koei Tecmo has announced a playable Alpha demo for Nioh, a PlayStation 4 Exclusive. Nioh’s Alpha demo will be available to all PlayStation 4 users across North America, Europe and Japan from April 26th 2016. The demo will run on a limited time basis ending May 5th, 2016.
Currently without a confirmed month for release in 2016, Nioh follows the story of William, loosely based upon William Adams, a blond-haired Samurai, and son of a Japanese lord and a Western woman during the Warring States period in 16th-century Japan.
Kou Shibusawa, General Producer for Nioh recently spoke to PlayStationBlog:
“Ten years have passed since Nioh was originally announced. Even during all that time though, gamers would always ask about it at events like E3 and Gamescom. We always felt support from the gamers around the world for this title. Now, finally, Nioh — a game created with the entire power of Koei Tecmo — will be released in 2016. In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month. We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action — Nioh.”
Nioh will launch in 2016 Exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Check out a trailer from PlayStation Experience 2015 below.
