In this sequel, developers Team Ninja have added new layers of depth to Nioh’s already brutal and complex combat system. Alongside an arsenal of new weapons, Nioh 2 introduces the Yokai Shift, which allows you to devastate your enemies with savage supernatural powers. If you think you have what it takes to release Japan from the grip of demon forces, read on to find out which edition you should pick up.
