Today Koei Tecmo released a brand new trailer for its upcoming PS4 exclusive NiOh.
The trailer that you can see below, focuses on the game’s story, and predominantly on the historical battle of Sekigahara. It’s titled “The Two Samurai Who Battle for the World” after Mitsunari ishida and Ieyasu Tokugawa, who fought on opposite sides during the battle, eventually won by the latter. Both play a relevant role in NiOh.
The battle of Sekigahara was fought on October 21st, 1600, and was basically the deciding point of the Sengoku Jidai, the era of civil war that ended with the rise of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It will be a stage in the game, and apparently supernatural forces will make an appearance to tip the scale one way or another, with protagonist William having to face terrible Yokai on top of human soldiers.
If you want to see more about the Battle of Sekigahara stage, you can check out several screenshots here.
NiOh will release in North America on February 7th, published directly by Sony Interactive Entertainment. European gamers will have to wait until February 8th, while Japanese gamers will get the game last, on February 9th.
If you want to play the game before it launches, you can already download a the “Last Chance” demo, that will become playable tonight at midnight, and will be available only for 48 hours.
