Dark Souls meets Onimusha.
During Sony’s PlayStation Experience event today, the company confirmed Ni-Oh, the third-person action game from Team Ninja, is coming to PS4.
Ni-Oh was originally announced as a PlayStation 3 launch title back in 2004, but the game never released because of development problems. However, Sony showed more gameplay today, showing the game’s Dark Souls-esque combat in a dark world a la Onimusha.
The gameplay followed the protagonist as he dodged enemies and attacked from various angles. The environments and combat both suggest Ni-Oh will take place in a dark landscape with a historical aesthetic, lending the game a seemingly mature tone.
Sony has yet to announce a release date for Ni-Oh, but stay tuned to GameSpot for more news.
