‘Nioh’ Slices its Way to PC This November



PC fans longing for a port of Koei Tecmo’s samurai demon-slaying RPG Nioh have had their prayers answered, as the publisher announced that the former PlayStation 4 exclusive will be released on PC November 7th. Dubbed the “Complete Edition”, the game will arrive with the trio of add-on packs, a consistent 60fps frame rate referred to as “Action Mode” by Tecmo, and a “Movie Mode”, which is “a cinematic option that can expand the display resolution to 4K.”

The game, which has been lauded for its action as well as its notorious difficulty, will also feature a a new item called the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet in celebration of the Valve release.

In addition, the specs for the game were also released, and as expected, it doesn’t come cheap. Unexpected, however, is the recommended requirement of 100GB HD space. Seriously?! I know my rig’s due for an upgrade, but this is pushing it. I guess if you’re looking to play the game in Movie Mode, it’s one of the sacrifices you’ll have to make.
