Koei Tecmo/Team Ninja is hard at work on Nioh 2, promising that the game will hit its intended release date of March 13th.

The storyline is actually a prequel to the original game, taking place decades before William’s adventure in Nioh. Here’s but a taste of what’s to come!

Koei Temco also talked about their post-release DLC plans! Tom Lee is the Creative Director at Team Ninja went into full details for all the add-on content via the PlayStation Blog:

I’d like to share some exciting details regarding our upcoming DLC and Season Pass plans with you guys.

We have three major DLC releases planned, with each focusing on a different storyline that pre-dates the events of Nioh 2, promising hours of additional gameplay that will provide plenty of challenge for those thirsting for more.

Similar to the original Nioh, players can expect new weapons, new combat abilities and new characters, with each DLC incorporating both multiple main and sub-missions.

The three DLC packs are included in Nioh 2’s Season Pass, which forms part of the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition (now available for pre-order). In addition to the main game and DLC, you’ll also get premium in-game items such as the Demon Horde armor set and Kodama Netsuke Charm.

For players who purchase the Nioh 2 Special Edition, in addition to the main game and Season Pass, you’ll receive an exclusive SteelBook case and “The Art of Nioh 2” booklet.

Will you be returning to age of mystical feudal Japan once Nioh 2 launches on March 13th?
