The game dubbed “Dark Souls Japanese Version” will return to players on March 13. Nioh 2 will be even more difficult than the first part.
This March, the game village welcomes Nioh 2 – Souls-like game with Japanese graphics style but with horribly difficult gameplay. The first part of Nioh received a lot of praise, so the Team Ninja development team quickly announced Nioh 2 with quite a few changes, but at the core, it was even harder than before.
Experience the Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo: Dizzy gameplay – amazing music in the ears Although there is only one hour of demo time, at least Final Fantasy VII Remake has shown some familiarity with the game this legend.
Nioh 2 still has the same plot as the first part about Japan’s era, war, and death that led to amrita’s formatioa – a magical stone capable of giving people strength. Infinitely powerful, at the expense of losing your mind and turning into a devil. This era is also the time when famous heroes in history appear. Each of them is blessed by Guardian Spirits in the form of summoned beasts that surround them, giving them the ability to overcome dominant people.
However, Nioh 2 is a prequel to the first version. It takes place about 40 years before the first part, so it will be difficult for us to meet the protagonist William because his ability is still not born yet. The main character in Nioh 2 will be the player himself. A mysterious mercenary possessing the power of Guardian Spirits, but more memorable is not like the typical human. This new character has half the blood of demons to keep and transform to borrow power from the treasury.
The graphic style of Nioh 2 is almost no different from the first part. It still follows the Japanese visual style around the 16th century. But the other change is how players will explore a world called the Dark Realm – a place that exists parallel in the world, the residence of the demons is always appearing because of the attraction from Amrita stone.
Nioh’s gameplay still follows the Dark Souls style with physical bars and 50% health attacks from any monster you encounter on the way, basically familiar things like beats, dodge, and combos. The old weapons are quite similar to Nioh, so those who have already played will get acquainted quickly. Of course, Nioh 2 also has many new improvements, as in the demo section introduced two new weapons, the ax (Hachet) and the scythe (Switchglaive). Hachet has a way of fighting like a double sword but instead of slashing. It is thrown.
Switchglaive is more complex, its range is as long as Nodachi, but its speed is faster. Switchglaive’s combo is quite confusing and takes time to get used to. Of course, the attacks still follow the familiar 3 – upper – middle – lower, which applies to all weapons. The game Ky Pulse to restore physical strength or purify the impurities created by yokai remains the same. In general, the mechanism of Nioh 2 is still relatively easy to understand.
Another new feature of Nioh 2 is that you can now gain skills from the hordes of demons we defeated during gameplay, which uses Anima’s resource to use this skill. Depending on these Yokai’s power, the more or less Anima consumes, these skill types can also level up and attach gems to maximize the power, extending from attack, buff, debuff, and Both create special effects.
Due to Anima’s resources, Nioh 2 now can counterattack like Bloodborne. You will watch when the opponent has attacked to press R2 + O and counter to pay a bunch of damage, as well as make it be Stun for a short distance. Most of the monsters that drop abilities will force you to go to the Dark Realm area, where Yokai is maximized, and the main character has reduced physical regen.
When placebo effects also fool gamers, Today’s placebo effects are no longer confined to the medical field when people can see them everywhere, including playing games.
Monsters in Nioh 2 are now more potent than the first, with more significant damage, increased speed and range, and many types of nasty effects such as petrification, poison, speed reduction, or armor reduction. To help the player, we can call other dead players through the tombstones to help me. Of course, you can also defeat these ghosts to get the same part.
Bosses in Nioh 2 are a lot harder. In both demos, we can see that now he covers more blood, hits more challenges, and always transforms 2 to 3 times a game. The boss’s beat is also longer and longer. They can drag half of the screen to approach the player and then pound like rice. Moreover, we now have to know the balance between support and dodge for a few moves. It can’t be evaded when it covers the whole screen.
The elemental damage is also more critical in Nioh 2 because, in the first part, they play a small role. Elemental damage now helps you break the boss (break) boss faster and add effects in each attack. Finally, to add to the misery, these bosses can continuously drag players into the Dark Realm. It is true that only running and supporting waiting for hours and not being able to counterattack.
In the demo of Nioh 2, the player had a lot of experience with these bosses. According to the Game’s perception, they must be 1 to 40% more challenging than Nioh, generally determine to eat long onions.
Nioh 2 will be officially launched on March 13, 2020, initially exclusively for Playstation 4 before and with no PC release date.
