Dark Souls fans should definitely take a look at Ni-Oh.
Somewhere between the project’s 2004 announce as “Oni” and its reappearance a decade later, Team Ninja made a Dark Souls game. The video below was shown behind closed doors at TGS, which is where I discovered this interesting transformation.
Based on an unfilmed Akira Kurosawa script, Ni-Oh concerns the adventures of a foreign-born samurai. It hails from the studio behind Ninja Gaiden, one of toughest action franchises of all time, which makes it an intriguing addition to this genre.
