Players that own Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition on PS4 can upgrade to Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition on PS5 at no additional cost.

I wonder what the original game will cost to upgrade? No mention of save transfer either. Still great news.

Here we go. Last gen we had definitive edition versions of the same games. Now we have 4k 120FPS. So much for originality and innovation.

How's Nioh 2 compared to the first game? The first one didn't hook me for some reason. The item/loot system was too sophisticated for me to want to get into for this kind of game.

Will Nioh 1 be updated on PC to support 120hz then?

Currently 60fps is the max it will do.

I think it's better than the first and my favorite game this year so far but you'll probably have the same hang ups.

One of the best features of the first Nioh on ps4 was the performance mode at 720p, i.e. in such a game, 60 fps made a huge, huge difference.

I wish other games had the same tbh (i.e. I played on a 1080p Panasonic Plasma at the time ergo the drop from 1080p to 720p wasn't really massively noticeable in terms of image quality. Nice to see they're still updating & upgrading this stuff.

Thank goodness I held off on buying this game when I saw it on sale a week ago.
I'm always highly suspicious of digital game sales now. Usually means its getting a re-release or its going on game pass the following week. Notable exception includes Christmas of course.

Highly recommend those who've not gotten it yet or held off for PC/PS5 Remaster to pick this up. The games are great.

Wow that's pretty awesome! I wonder if there will be a physical release for the USA.

What's unfortunate about it being via Steam?
It's a game walled behind an online account/DRM client.

I know I am in the minority and I know that most physical PC games I buy are bound to Steam but I just crack those/download a repack such that I don't have to bother with all that account stuff.
But that's just me. I know that many PC gamers love Steam.

Even being a huge From Software fan I just couldn’t get into these games. I don’t know why. I tried multiple times and it just didn’t stick.

Hopefully being 4K cleans up the image, because those edges look like chainsaw teeth.
