Nioh 2 Close Alpha Trailer
Fans of the original Nioh will notice that the trailer looks a lot like the first game with some notable additions. Along with playable male samurai, fans will notice that there is now playable female characters. Transformations into yokai are also shown in the gameplay, revealing different move sets that can be utilized when player characters go into this ultimate state. Many different weapons are also seen throughout the trailer, including a nodachi, dual wield axes, a naginita, and more.
The trailer explains that the closed alpha will be held for a full week. The test starts on Saturday, May 25th and will end on Sunday, June 2nd.
