Ni-Oh, otherwise known as Koei Tecmo’s Dark Souls, is aiming for 1080p and 60 frames-per-second.


Ni-Oh, the Team Ninja fantasy RPG that resurfaced at TGS 2015 after years of dormancy, has been built from the group up on PlayStation 4 and is targeting 1080p resolution and 60 frames-per-second.

Koei Tecmo CEO Kou Shibusawa told Chinese site 4Gamer – as translated by Zhugeex, the game has went through three different iterations since its reveal all the way back in 2005, with the most recent one being referred to as a “Sengoku dark fantasy.”

According to Shibusawa, the first prototype aimed to differentiate itself from Dynasty Warriors, with the second being too similar to Ninja Gaiden. Both ended up being scrapped in favour of the Dark Souls-esque one that Tecmo is looking to release this year.

Ni-Oh is also coming to the West, on PlayStation 4.
