Team Ninja's samurai action game Nioh coming to North America

A new look at the supernatural slash 'em up

Nioh, the samurai action game from the developers of Ninja Gaiden, is making its way to the west as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Sony and Koei Tecmo announced at PlayStation Experience today. The companies also offered a new look at the action game, thanks to some new gameplay footage.

The pace of Nioh looks a little slower than the fast-paced action of Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden games, and appears steeped in the supernatural.

Nioh was originally in development at Koei Tecmo for PS3. Team Ninja announced in 2010 that it had taken over development of the game, but had little in the way of details at the time. The game was reintroduced at this year's Tokyo Game Show as a 2016 title.
