Developer Team Ninja has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm the Nioh 2 Darkness in the Capital DLC release date – October 15.
Nioh 2 Darkness In The Capital Details
For those out of the loop, Darkness in the Capital introduces a fresh storyline, new bosses, extra Yokai, new Guardian Spirits, skills, Ninjutsu, Onmyo Magic and Soul Cores. In addition, players will be able to get their hands on electrifying new armor sets and a weapon that hand-to-hand combat fans will lap up.
Here’s the official blurb on some of the backstory:
In order to unravel the mysteries surrounding the history of the Sohayamaru, our protagonist ventures to Kyoto City and discovers a shrine furnished with an old worn-out box. Upon inspection, the Sohayamaru once again shines brilliantly and the protagonist is whisked away to the middle of the Heian Period, landing in an ancient version of the capital.
Contrary to its name “Heian Palace,” which means peace and tranquility, ancient Kyoto was terrorized by countless Yokai during this time period. However, there existed many heroes who were brave enough to oppose these demons. Among them were the most preeminent demon slayer and the strongest sorcerer in history, along with their subordinates and colleagues fighting at their side.
Nioh 2 was released back in March 2020 for PS4, and you can read our review here.
