Nioh 2

Nioh 2 Box Art

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.

    I really like how they added the preorder bonuses to the digital deluxe package so it makes it seem like we would get extras as replacement for not getting the physical extras while keeping it the same price, sigh. This is the messed up stuff the GameStop used to do like advertising 1st print bonuses as GameStop exclusive preorder bonuses.

      Good point. Replacement kicks in after launch I assume. Because then you get no bonuses with regular edition.
