Nioh’s Intro Movie Is Beautiful and Insane

Enjoy the intro to Team Ninja's lavish new action/RPG a day before release.

Fans of melee action and RPGs rejoice: Team Ninja's long in development Nioh finally releases tomorrow! Although comparisons to From Software's Dark Souls are obvious and openly invited by Team Ninja themselves, the game's moment-to-moment action takes more than a few cues from Team Ninja's prolific history in the genre with games like Ninja Gaiden Black and Ninja Gaiden II.

Starting with the release of the almost universally disappointing Nintendo collaboration Metroid: Other M, the once legendary studio has been in something of a downward spiral, releasing the underwhelming Dead or Alive 5, the awful Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, and the reviled Ninja Gaiden 3.

Even with a string of recent failings, the studio still carries a lot of weight with fans of action and fighting games, as titles from the golden age of the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series are some of the greatest examples of their respective genres.

 

 

Having had a decent amount of hands-on time from the Last Chance Trial, I can safely say that Nioh will bring Team Ninja roaring back to the forefront of the Japanese game development scene. Nioh finally releases exclusively for PlayStation 4 tomorrow, so stay tuned to APG for more coverage soon!
