One more time Team Ninja is coming back with more information about its upcoming title Nioh 2. And just like it did with the original Nioh, the developer’s team will select a few PS4 owners to grant them early access to Nioh 2 as a closed alpha test. The Alpha test will be available for the Lucky owners on Saturday, May 24, and it will end on Sunday, June 2.
This Wednesday on Twitter, Team Ninja mentioned how the closed alpha will be limited to a small amount of PS4 users and designed to “gather feedback for the development.” At the moment there is no information on a future expansion for the alpha test but did mention to keep checking out its channel for more info in the future.
This yesterday the team Ninja Developer released a new trailer to offers a look from the action fantasy ninja action-RPG. The trailer seems to show that Nioh 2 will have the same vibe on scenography. The trailer feature new weapons like a longer nodachi-style blade, a naginata and duel-wielded axes. And it also seems to playable characters that can transform into Yokai.
If Nioh 2 release is just like the one for the first entry, we might see a beta test before the sequel gets to be released. Nioh 2 was officially announced with a brief teaser at Sony’s E3 2018. However, with Sony taking a break from E3 2019, it’s unclear how we will get more information or new looks from Nioh 2.
