Tecmo Koei’s Nioh comes to PC in November

The previously PS4 exclusive hack’n’slash Samurai RPG, which we called as the “New Standard of Difficulty”, will be coming to PC in November.

Nioh: Complete Edition will be coming to PC on November 7th, 2017 and will feature all three DLC expansions: ‘Dragon of the North’, ‘Defiant Honour’, and ‘Bloodshed’s End’.

“Team NINJA is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of “Nioh”,” Said Dicector Fumihiko Yasuda. “I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.”

To celebrate the PC edition, Team Ninja is offering a brand-new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto Helmet. Which the PC version Press Release describes as:

“The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of “kawari-kabuto”—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to “Valve Kabuto,” but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…”

Nioh is loosely based on the tale of the English navigation officer turned Samurai, William Adams, added with creatures from Japanese folklore (Yokai) to make a fantastical Samurai epic that is still filled with history and lore, and designed to make players break their controllers.
