Nioh 2 is a “masocore” action RPG from Team Ninja. Timeline-wise it is a prequel to the original Nioh, and follows a different protagonist: a half-yokai, half-human mercenary who can utilize both weapons and supernatural abilities, and even enter the Dark Realm. This time around, the protagonist is fully customizable by the player including gender, appearance, and so on.
Like its predecessor, Nioh 2 can be played in Action (60 FPS), Movie (30 FPS with superior visuals), and Variable modes – and switching between them is easier than before. Regardless of the mode, PS4 Pro owners will enjoy higher resolutions.

- Demon Horde armor set
