NiOh’s First Story DLC Gets New Screenshots Showing Badass Date Masamune and More on Famitsu

Koei Tecmo reveals NiOh's upcoming DLC with a batch of screenshots on Weekly Famitsu.

Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu came with a sizable spread on the upcoming story DLC for NiOh, titled “Dragon of the North” or “The Dragon of Tohoku” in japan

The title is a clear reference to daimiyo Date Masamune, and in fact that’s the first character introduced by the images. As usual, he looks really badass.

We also get a look at two more characters, Date Shigezane, Masamune’s cousin, and retainer Katakura Shigenaga.

Two new guardian spirits for William are portrayed, Seiryu (Blue Dragon), which is the same that appears behind Date Masamune, probably indicating that he will pass it on to Willian somehow. The second is an old acquaintance, Nekomata.

Three new levels have also been revealed, Aobajou, Chusonji and Tohno, set in the northern area of Japan named Iwate Prefecture.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a NiOh expansion without new ugly monsters to kill, and we also get to see the Odachi, which is basically the greatsword version of a Katana.

On top of the DLC content, we also get four images from the free update that will be release on the same day. Two of them show online PvP, that will include both 1 vs 1 and 2 vs 2 modes.

The second pair of screenshots showcases a much requested feature, transform skins that will allow your character to take on the looks of the game’s female characters.

You can check out all the screenshots below, keeping in mind that they come from magazine scans, so the quality is not perfect.

NiOh is currently available exclusively for PS4, and if you want to learn more you can check out our own review. The Dragon of the North DLC will be released on May 2nd.
