As many people know Nioh was an action-role-playing title that was initially released for the PlayStation 4 & Microsoft Windows back in 2017. While there some people who complained about small things in regards to Nioh such as the storyline being somewhat confusing there were definitely more positive than negatives overall. The visuals, gameplay, difficulty and the setting of the game which emphasized ancient Japanese history were all qualities that made Nioh one of the best action role-playing games of the late 10’s. Sometimes its hard to believe that its been approximately three years since Nioh first appeared on the PS4 back in February 2017. In fact, we are getting very close to the official release of Nioh 2 which will be a PS4 exclusive staring on March 3rd, 2020. As far as sales are concerned for the original Nioh game its been recently reported that the critically acclaimed action role-playing game has sold at least three millions copies worldwide.
While three million copies sold within the time span of three years does not sound like much its actually pretty impressive considering what Nioh had to compete with in relation to the action role-playing genre. Between 2017-2019 we saw the release of high profile Action-RPG’s such as: Horizon Zero Dawn, Monster: Hunter World, Assassins Creed Odessey, Kingdom Hearts III, Outer Worlds which were all titles that definitely could have overshadowed Nioh within that particular genre. While Nioh is still a pretty fun game to play many people are currently anticipating the release of Nioh 2 which looks very promising and can have more success than its predecessor.
