Nioh, Team Ninja's Ninja-Gaiden-Dark-Souls mashup, will be released in February 2017

The PS4 exclusive will get a worldwide launch on February 9.


Team Ninja's Nioh action game will be released on February 9, 2017 (via Game Informer). Betas and demos for the PS4 exclusive materialized on and off this year, but Team Ninja hadn't nailed down a release date until yesterday.

I got to play the game at E3. As I wrote in my preview, "Nioh got me excited. It's not a carbon copy of one of my favorite series; instead, it sharpens familiar elements, making them leaner and faster. It's something the same, yet something different, and I'm excited to play more."
