Nioh Alpha Demo Available from Now until May 5

Jack Gardner



The dark, difficult samurai action-RPG, Nioh, has released a playable demo onto the PlayStation 4. Similar to the Dark Souls 3 alpha stress test, the Nioh demo has a relatively short lifespan and will be available for a little over a week. Publisher Koei Tecmo has also said that all players who complete the demo will receive The Mark of the Conqueror DLC when the full game launches. According to Koei Tecmo, The Mark of the Conqueror will not be available to those who don't complete the demo, though that could change.


The demo occurs through two areas, Usuki and Dazaifu. Usuki is a destroyed, shambling fishing village and Dazaifu is a place completely overrun with demons. Three basic weapon types are available; katana, spear, and axe. 



Nioh is being developed by Team Ninja and will be released on PlayStation 4. No release date has been given as of yet.

Oh great. Dark Souls meets Ninja Gaiden. 


Ooof. It looks beautiful and teases me with memories of Onimusha. But as I regret my recent Dark Souls III purchase, I will have to let others enjoy this one.
