The people who are attending the 2019 Tokyo Game Show will have a chance to experience a brand new demo for Nioh 2, which is being debuted at the event.

Nioh 2 is the upcoming sequel to the popular samurai game that was inspired by Dark Souls. The fact that Nioh 2 exists in a world where Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been released might seem as if it robs the series of its identity, but the game has content and options that were absent in FromSoftware's samurai epic. Unlike Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Nioh 2 allows the player to create their own character, equip a variety of different weapons that have different fighting styles, and the main character's status as half-human, half-Yokai means that they can tap into the power of their demonic heritage and transform into a powerful monster.

Nioh 2 has already had an alpha demo test back in May and June of this year, but a new demo is planned to be available at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show. According to a post by Team Ninja on the PlayStation.blogthe demo will contain all-new content that hasn't been seen yet by players.

The previous Nioh 2 closed demo was played by over fifty thousand people around the world and has been a crucial part of the development process of the game, with the developers hard at work implementing the changes suggested by fans. The demo that will be shown at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show is intended for consumers and will likely represent a version of the game that is closer to how the finished product will look.


There hasn't been much information revealed about Nioh 2, outside of the fact that it's coming to the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. There is currently no word on a release date, nor a list of the systems that it will be available on, but the fact that demo is being shown at the Tokyo Game Show suggests that Nioh 2 could be released sooner rather than later. The final message from Team Ninja in the post says that "Nioh 2 is on the horizon", so it's possible that the game could be released before the end of 2019.
