After launching exclusively on PS4 back in February, Team Ninja’s brutally challenging action RPG is coming to PC next month.
Nioh: Complete Edition is scheduled to release on November 7th for PC via Steam. It will include the base game plus all three DLC’s — Dragon of the North, Defiant Honor, and Bloodshed’s End. The PC version of Nioh will offer “stunning high-end resolution graphics” with two different visual settings. Action Mode promises a stable 60fps, while Movie Mode allows for 4K graphics.
“Team Ninja is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of Nioh,” said game director Fumihiko Yasuda in a statement. “I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.”
In addition to the included DLC expansions, Nioh: Complete Edition will flaunt a few pieces of content much earlier than in the base game. According to publisher Koei Tecmo, “all seven weapon types, ninjutsu, and onmyo magics will be available to players from the beginning, while finishing the core game will also unlock features like the Dual Guardian Spirit.”
Nioh‘s PC version also includes a brand new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet, pictured above. Koei Tecmo did not reveal any special abilities the helmet provides, but you’ll chuckle at its official description:
“The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of ‘kawari-kabuto’—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to “Valve Kabuto,” but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…”
