Nioh and Nioh 2 will move to PlayStation 5 on February 5, 2021 via the Nioh collection, which remasters both titles with 4K support and up to 120 frames per second. Each game is bundled with all DLC and the owner of the second entry in the series can get a free upgrade. Each remaster can be purchased individually or as part of the complete Nioh collection to commemorate the 4th anniversary of the franchise.
On the PlayStation blog, creative director Tom Lee also mentions the key features of these PS5 versions: ultra-fast load times and the ability to transfer PS4 saves. All pre-orders for the Nioh Remastered, Nioh 2 Remastered, and Nioh Collection will be available on the PlayStation Store next week on November 20, 2020. You should assume that there is also a physical release. The PS5 version also takes advantage of console activity features, tactile feedback and adaptive triggers, cross-play with PS4 players, and 3D audio.
Lee would like to thank the fans for participating in Team Ninja’s journey and sign out. “On behalf of Team Ninja, I am truly grateful for supporting the Nio series and the team through this long and wonderful ride. As a sign of gratitude, I thought there was no better way to celebrate the Nio series. It’s much closer and more important to our hearts than both veterans and new players remastering the entire story to enjoy using the latest hardware. “
