Nioh is basically Dark Souls with samurai, and the prequel title aims to do the same as its predecessor while improving on the formula. This ARPG reportedly has better skill trees, improved weapons, and a Switchglaive, which transforms as players attack and has a slower, more methodical take on the frenzied combat surrounding Nioh 2.
We've reported on the demo before, and it seems that if you're skilled at the first game, those skills will transfer beautifully to Nioh 2. The enemies will still put you through the wringer if you make a single mistake, as most Souls games will.
For those unfamiliar with Souls games, getting through an 80-hour playthrough of Nioh 2 when it releases in March of 2020 will be an accomplishment in itself.
