Nioh 2 launched in March 2020 on PS4 before releasing an updated version on PS5 and PC in February 2021. The series together have sold over 5 million copies, including sales of 2017’s Nioh. The game is a high fantasy action title that requires players to use skill to overcome the many powerful enemies that await them. However, its high difficulty level doesn’t seem to be holding it back from reaching a broad audience of gamers.

Nioh 2 is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
