Nioh Gets a Brand New Video Footage

The video is available in 4K resolution and shares a moment between Okatsu and William. Okatsu, who is accompanied by a rabbit spirit shows amazement at seeing a silver-haired samurai who apparently are a rare breed. You can check out the said video footage attached above and share your impressions with us in the comments section below!

And in case you are wondering, the game will be playable at 4K resolution on Playstation 4 Pro as confirmed by Koei Tecmo and Sony:

PS4 Pro


  • Movie Mode: Stable 1920×1080 resolution with high quality anti-aliasing at 30fps
  • Action Mode: Stable 1920×1080 resolution at 60fps

Here you can find Nioh PS4 Pro display options for 4K TVs instead.


  • Movie Mode: Stable 3840×2160 resolution at 30fps
  • Action Mode: Stable 1920×1080 resolution at 60fps

Playstation 4

  • Movie Mode: Focuses on resolution over frame rate, providing beautiful high resolution graphics with stable 30fps
  • Action Mode: Emphasis is on frame rate, providing a stable 60fps
  • Movie Mode with Variable Frame Rate: Provides high resolution graphics with a variable frame rate that may go over 30fps

The game previously received a new cinematic trailer titled the ‘Legend of Nioh’. The said trailer is essentially an animated cutscene which provides players with a glimpse at the game’s storyline. Moreover, the title is completely titled as the Legend of Nioh Part-1 which hints at its subsequent parts, but we have yet to see them.

The game’s director Fumihiko Yasuda said in a recent interview that the game’s length is somewhat around 70 hours. Combine the game’s difficulty curve with XP grinding or finding all weapons/armour and you should have a lot more than that.

This kind of goes in line with SoulsBorne series by FromSoftware although the worlds of two series differ by quite a lot. To find out more, head over to the post!

Nioh is planned to release on Feb. 07 in North America, on Feb. 08 in Europe, and on Feb. 09 in Japan exclusively for Playstation 4.
