by on April 4, 2016

Team Ninja have announced via the PlayStation Blog that their historical RPG title Nioh will receive an alpha demo at the end of the month.

The PS4 exclusive tasks players with mastering samurai combat, fighting through the demon-plagued realms of Japan. “Ten years have passed since Nioh was originally announced,” said Kou Shibusawa, General Producer of the game. “Even during all that time though, gamers would always ask about it at events like E3 and Gamescom. We always felt support from the gamers around the world for this title.”

“Now, finally, Nioh — a game created with the entire power of Koei Tecmo — will be released in 2016. In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month. We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action — Nioh.”

Players who complete the demo will gain access to the exclusive The Mark of the Conqueror DLC, adding an extra chapter to the main game when it is released later this year. The Alpha Demo will be available from April 26 through May 5 only.
