Team Ninja’s action RPG Nioh will be receiving a second expansion on July 25th. Defiant Honor will cost $9.99 and will be included in the Season Pass.
Here is the story of the expansion given by creative director Tom Lee.
“Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
In the midst of this chaos, our hero William, accompanied by Date Masamune who fights alongside Tokugawa, heads towards Sanada Maru in pursuit of Maria. It is a bitter winter in Osaka and the stage is ripe for a fierce battle for the ages. Bundle up and get ready for a brutal winter showdown!”
Naturally, the expansion will include new magic items, armors, enemies, Guardian Spirits and weapon Tonfa. New difficulty modes will also be added however it is not known whether it will increase or decrease difficulty.
