It was not that long ago when most assumed Nioh would not come out at all. Not to mention: we have seen how some games trapped in development hell can turn out (Duke Nukem Forever: we are looking at you). That’s not always the case though, as is evident with the endlessly charming The Last Guardian… another game most people thought that they would never play. Actually, it feels like a lot of games are coming back from the dead recently. Best of all: Koei Tecmo, and Team Ninja released an open Beta of Nioh recently, and the game is actually a ton of fun.
Nioh officially releases on February 7th, 2017 for PS4.
