Here’s a title I never expected to see. It looks like a fantastic title too. Oddly enough, it wasn’t the big Final Fantasy VII remake gameplay or Ni no Kuni II that got me truly excited, it was this. Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja have teamed up again, to bring forth an action title, called Ni-Oh, originally in development for the Playstation 3, to the Playstation 4 instead.
It stars a samurai warrior in feudal Japan, who seeks to fulfill his destiny. For God’s sakes, it’s an Asian Geralt of Rivia! It plays out a lot like Onimusha, based on the Playstation Experience trailer that went out today, and it has the gritty feel of the Onimusha type game that I’ve been yearning for. For future reference, I’m a huge fan of Onimusha. Ni-Oh might just be what I need to fill that empty void.
Here’s a gameplay trailer for you, straight from the conference.
