Koei Tecmo Games announced today the upcoming release of celebrated dark fantasy game Nioh via Steam. Met with both critical and commercial success on PlayStation 4, the game tells the story of the blonde-haired swordsman and makes its PC debut on November 7, 2017 as Nioh: Complete Edition, packed with hours of extra content as it will include the original version of Nioh and all expansions: Dragon of the North, Defiant Honour, and Bloodshed’s End.
The digital-only PC release boasts stunning high-resolution graphics over two modes as Nioh: Complete Edition can be enjoyed either in Action Mode, featuring a stable 60 FPS, or on Movie Mode, a cinematic option that can expand the display resolution to 4K. These new enhanced graphical modes bring the dark and beautiful world of Nioh to life like never before.
To celebrate the release of Nioh: Complete Edition on Steam, Team Ninja is offering players a brand-new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet. The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam.
Finishing the core game of Nioh: Complete Edition incrementally unlocks access to the deeper levels of the game’s ultimate challenge: The Abyss. This ethereal world, made up of innumerable floors, punishingly difficult boss enemies, and considerable risks, is so challenging that players are even allowed to summon up to two other visitors to overcome the dangers that lurk therein! If you wanted to play Nioh but didn’t want to be limited to a weak console, now’s your chance!
