Nioh is officially out now, and the official launch trailer shows off the game’s intense action.

Nioh launched today to largely emphatic reviews. The game, from Ninja Gaiden developers Team Ninja, bears a strong resemblance to Dark Souls/Bloodborne, offering an extreme challenge and encouraging focused practice to achieve mastery.

To that end, if you’re planning on playing it, you’ll want to keep our guide bookmarked.

Nioh is exclusive to the PlayStation 4, and has been in development for a very long time – in fact work first started in 2004, on what would have been a very different game called Oni (based on an unproduced Akira Kurosawa script).
