A decade ago Koei Tecmo announced a samurai action game called Ni-Oh for PS3 (there were even some screenshots). And then it disappeared... until today! This morning on Sony's Tokyo Game Show stage Koei Tecmo re-unveiled Nioh (the styling is all over the place and there's no hyphen now, so I'm normalising it) as a PlayStation 4 game coming in 2016.
It's a dark and chunky third-person action game with grotesque enemies and bosses. It doesn't look a million miles away from a Souls-like experience, and the main character doesn't look a million miles away from Geralt, hero of The Witcher games.
