Understanding Nioh's multiplayer and torii gates

How to fight with other Williams

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

As lonely as it may feel fighting your way on your own through the demon hordes, you don’t always have to do it alone. We talked about using ochoko cups to summon help at a shrine in the Nioh beginner’s guide. Let’s talk about the other side of that equation.

Yokai realm with a companion

In this option, Williams fight together. The Williams fighting together in this mode share a pool of life. You can recharge at shrines and the Williams can revive each other when they fall during fights. Co-op yokai realm missions are more challenging (punishing) and more rewarding because of your teamwork.

Random encounters

This is the more traditional co-op option in Nioh, in which you make yourself available to another player who is offering a ochoko cup. You drop into their game to help them through whatever mission they’re struggling with, or you can choose which mission you’re offering to help with.

The next level of puzzles.
