KOEI TECMO Announces Second Downloadable Demo for Highly-Anticipated Samurai Action RPG, Nioh, Alongside Gripping New Trailer
Burlingame and Los Angeles, Calif. — June 14, 2016 — KOEI TECMO America today announced that its highly-anticipated samurai action RPG, Nioh, will receive a second downloadable demo exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Following the overwhelming success of the Alpha Demo in April—during which more than 850,000 players downloaded Nioh and experienced the game’s intense and compelling gameplay for the first time—the second demo is currently planned for launch in August, with more information on its contents and exact release date to be announced at a later time.

KOEI TECMO America has also released a gripping new trailer alongside a choice selection of assets that reveal a variety of captivating locations, unusual mythical creatures, sinister enemies, and mysterious allies that cross paths with the game’s enigmatic blonde-haired protagonist, William. The short video provides a further glimpse into a world enveloped in mystery and mysticism, hinting at William’s powers and motives as he sets out on a treacherous path that takes him to the far end of the world – to a land of exotic islands torn by civil war and demonic supernatural threats.

A demo of Nioh featuring brand new content will be present at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 in Los Angeles from June 14 – 16 with more of what everyone loved about the recent Alpha Demo on PlayStation 4: more high-intensity combat, new weapons, never before seen characters, deadlier enemies and a whole lot of challenging gameplay.

About Nioh
In the dark, fantasy action RPG Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Players will face off against other samurai in epic sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy. Nioh not only incorporates iconic elements from Japanese folklore such as samurai and supernatural creatures—the game also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team NINJA. Nioh is guaranteed to challenge players in a way that makes every mission feel earned and their accomplishments worthwhile.

Scheduled for launch in 2016, Nioh is in development exclusively for the PS4™ system.
