Nioh 2 closed alpha invites give us a hot new trailer

Don't worry if you didn't get an invite to Nioh 2's closed alpha, here's a trailer to soothe your pain.

Some players are being invited to Nioh 2's closed alpha test on PlayStation 4, but all we get is this extremely rad trailer.

A closed test of the samurai souls-like sequel (that came before Sekiro) is running from May 24 to June 2 as Team Ninja look to learn more about what makes demonic slashing so fun.

From the trailer below, we can see that there are either multiple playable characters or the customization system they talked about at E3 2018 is very, very comprehensive. You can also turn into a demon yourself, which looks great.

The sequel doesn't currently have a release date, but if they announced it at last year's E3 and they're currently running an invite-only closed alpha for Nioh 2 then we'll put this on our 2020 Christmas lists (or tentatively a summer treat for 2021).


Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. Get in touch to talk about work or the $6 million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter.
