If you want more pointers on what to expect from Nioh 2 ahead of its March 13 release date then check out our review round-up below…

Nioh 2 review – 9.6 – Wccftech: “Nioh 2 builds upon the successes and failures of its predecessor and offering new tools to battle with the role of a half-yokai as the player character.

Some may say this iteration is even more brutal than the first!”

Nioh 2 review – 9.5 – PSU: “Masterfully crafted and executed, Nioh 2 sets the benchmark for action/adventure games that people just have to experience.

Team Ninja’s latest provides one of the most in-depth combat systems and an addictive loot system that may put all but the best dungeon crawlers to shame.

It’s quite simple, Nioh 2 has Game of the Year written all over it.”

Nioh 2 review – 9.0 – IGN: “Nioh 2 is an impressive evolution of its predecessor, strengthening everything that was already great, while mostly leaving its already existing issues alone.

“Its stellar combat is elevated by the addition of Soul Cores, Burst Counters, and the ways in which those two main new mechanics affect enemy AI and how you approach battles.

“It’s depth is impressive, even though that can also make it feel a little overwhelming due to how much time must be spent managing Nioh 2’s many systems.

“If you’re up to the challenge, Nioh 2 is no doubt one of the most difficult and rewarding games of this generation.”
