  • On average, it takes most gamers 45-55 hours to beat Nioh 2.

The quick answer to the question of how long it takes to beat Nioh 2 is 45-55 hours for the main campaign. Note that your personal completion time will vary depending on how you play and how familiar you are with Nioh and its challenging gameplay.

If you had little trouble with the first Nioh, you should be able to get through Nioh 2 in as little as 45 hours, though it may be closer to 50 if you decide to dig into some of the side missions as well. If it’s been a while since you play Nioh, or you’re new to the series and decided to start with Nioh 2, you could be looking at 55 hours or more to complete the game.

For those looking for even more content, you’ll be happy to hear there’s a New Game Plus mode available. As noted above, there are side missions available, and there are items you can track down and a skill tree to fill out that add even more time to Nioh 2 outside of the main story.

Hypothetically, if you decided to do everything there possibly is to do in Nioh 2 including New Game Plus, you could be looking at hundreds of hours of gameplay. That said, for most gamers it’ll take around 45 to 55 hours to beat the main campaign.
