Nioh (2017) Online

The game opens with a narration by William describing Amrita, a mystical golden stone found in abundance in Japan that is sought by the government of Queen Elizabeth I to secure victory over Spain. William is held in the Tower of London, but breaks out with the help of his Spirit Guardian Saoirse, a being born from the prayers of his home village who saved him from death when he was a boy and now prevents him from dying. William corners Edward Kelly, who is seeking Japan's Amrita. Capturing Saoirse with his own Ouroboros spirit, Kelly uses her to find Japan, with William going in pursuit. Landing in Japan in 1600, he fights Oni that are ravaging the area, catching the attention of Hanzo Hattori.

Nioh was based off of dark souls and the ninja gaiden series.

Nioh was first announced by original developer Koei in 2004 under its working title "Oni". In addition to the game, which was slated for a 2006 release, a feature film directed by Kurosawa's son Hisao Kurosawa would be produced alongside and inspire the game: the entire project's budget was estimated as being three billion yen. The movie tie-in was eventually cancelled in 2005 due to unspecified production problems, with the game becoming a standalone project. Nioh was first shown off in a trailer at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo, where it was announced as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. At the time, the title was romanized as "Ni-Oh". Initially slated for a 2006 release, Nioh missed its announced release date, and no update on the game was issued until 2009, when Koei Tecmo stated that the title was still in development. Similar updates would be issued over the following six years. The game, now retitled slightly as Nioh, was reintroduced at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, with a scheduled launch in Japan in 2016.It was later announced for an international release at the PlayStation Experience event in December of that year, also in 2016.

A manga based on the character and setting, called Nioh: The Golden Samurai (Nio: Kin'iro no Samurai), was written by Yosuke Katayama and began serialization in Weekly Shonen Magazine starting in May 2016.

I must admit that after Dark Souls, I wasn't able to adjust to playing this game for a while, and after beating first 3-4 bosses, I quit. Only months later I decided to revisit Nioh and realized I was very unfair not to give this game a chance, because it's easily the best of 2017, one of the best games ever made, an absolute must- have. A game you certainly need to get used to enjoy, therefore take my advice and don't be fooled by the beginning. Consider completing all the submissions before the main ones, since it will give you plenty of cool weapons and armor, and most importantly amrita (the analogue of souls here). Just like in Dark Souls it's important that you are as agile as possible, so make sure you improve the relevant stats. In fact try to level up as much as you can. Speaking of which, although Nioh was inspired by and is the reminiscent of great Dark Souls, it is very different, including the level up system. The combat is amazing once you figure it out. The setting is pure Japanese, it's beautiful but some may need to adapt to the atmosphere, so you might want to see Ran or other Kurosawa masterpieces before playing Nioh, after all it's based on master's unfinished script. Does it live up to the hype? Oh yes. I think Kurosawa would be proud. It's now one of my top favorites that I will be frequently revisiting and goes directly to my 'Japan rocks' list. The bosses are tough and pretty hard. Just how stupid I was to quit playing Nioh back then! I'm really ashamed I thought bad of this game before. And this is where I will address the creators of Nioh "Dear Nioh Team, if you come across any of my negative feedback that I haven't been able to track back and delete, please forgive my foolishness, you have done a miraculous job. Playing Nioh, I feel so happy I'm studying Japanese now, soon I will be able to play it with English subtitles off. Also I would love to say huge special thanks to Yûgo Kanno, the brilliant composer of this wonderful game, the Ogress boss fight theme is one of the most touching and emotional pieces I have ever heard, I have been listening to it for 2 days now and am listening to it as I'm typing this review. God bless you, guys and God bless Japan!"


Greetings from Lithuania.

While i'm not the biggest fan "Dark Souls" series but i really liked "Bloodborne" i was and still am simply blown away by "Nioh". Its one of the most involving games i've played, am playing and will be playing in years. It has amazing world, amazing action, terrific skills, tools and moves witch enriches this amazing game. You can do the same missions all over again and have some great loot. Bu the most important it feels unique - when you step into whatever mission, its hard to put it down.

Overall, "Nioh" is a hard game, but its highly rewording. It has terrific world and game play to interact with it. Its one of the most amazing games I've ever played.


Nioh Is My 2nd Favourite Game Of All Time. Its Such An Amazing Game. Even Better Than All The Games Of Bloodborne And Dark Souls. Dont Take Those People Seriously Who Say That This Game Is A Dark Souls Clone. This Game Was In Development Since 2004 And Was Slated To Release In 2006. But The Director Was Always Dissatisfied With The Game. So, This Game Faced Many Remakes Over The Years. At Last, The Project Was Given To Team Ninja Who Made A Game Which Is Very Good And Deserves To Be Called One Of The Best Games Of All Time. I Admit That Team Ninja Got Inspiration From The Souls Series. But, They Managed To Make A Much More Better Game Than Every Dark Souls And Bloodborne. Also, 2004 Wasn't The Year When The First Game In The Souls Series Was Released. This Game Is Of 2004. And, Dark Souls Is Of 2009. So, In Short, As This Game Was Being Developed Before Any Dark Souls Game, So, This Game Is Not A Dark Souls Clone Or Copy. This Game Is A Must Have For Everyone. But, Not For Those Who Dont Like Games Which Are Very Long. But, I Still Recommend This Game To Everyone. This Game Is A Real Legend!!!!!!!!


I really love this game also the game play is new and amazing .. very injoyable .. just give it a try .. and if you love the hadr games yo should try it and give it a chance


Just like I said in the title, this game is another Dark Souls rip off. Team Ninja needed to make a few extra bucks so they took the DS game mechanics and changed the setting to a 16th century japanese environment, just to make it look different. Too bad they also tried to make it unnecessarily harder (e.g. bosses that one-shot kill you, limited summonings, etc...). The result is an unbalanced Dark Souls clone. If you have money to spend get Bloodborne, you won't be disappointed.


Take Dark Souls, change the skin to a japanese theme, make the bosses 10 times stronger and there you have it, Nioh! Seriously, whoever developed this completely missed the point, action rpgs are about balance, not about how many times you die because the boss is overpowered... very disappointed


A blatant copy of Dark Souls, without any of the effort and subtlety. It works fine as an action game, and if you just can't get enough of the Souls games it works fine enough, but at no point was I actually invested in the game, unlike Dark Souls which had me hooked from beginning to end.
