PSX 2016: Nioh trailer shows off fast action and boss battles

If swords aren't enough for you, there are rocket launchers, too.


Team Ninja came out slicing and dicing and shooting at this weekend's PSX event, debuting a brand-new trailer for Nioh. The trailer highlights boss fights, blisteringly fast action, and a rocket launcher.

Nioh is best described as Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden meets FromSoftware's Dark Souls. I played a demo at E3 and came away excited for the full release, which is due out in 2017.

"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," I wrote in my hands-on preview.
