Development studio Team Ninja has released new screenshots of its upcoming action role-playing game Nioh 2. The game is the direct sequel to the original game.
In the game players play as a samurai warrior during his journey through the treacherous Sengoku period of Japan. The new main character is a half-breed as he is part human yet still possesses the extraordinary power of the Yokai.
His transformation from human to fiend will take him deep into the Dark Realm of the Yokai and this metamorphosis is said to be "spectacular and result in some truly intense action."
