I need to play Nioh before this comes out! Shameful backlog.

Why is the xbox tag used? It's PS4 and PC only.

Kaze2410d ago

So they can get more hits.. Seen plenty of articles like this with nothing to do with xbox and it's tagged as if it was.

Sekiro's combat, art direction, enemy variety and level design are far superior to Nioh's imo.

killswitch8010d ago

Nioh had some decent level designs the issue for me is having a screen that select stages instead of it all being connected. I really hope they just make one big connected area or at least less separated stages.

MeteorPanda10d ago

Nani? Nioh had 3 styles per weapon and had more interesting item hunting.

Theyre pretty different and sekiro is very niche and is pure katanarama

AspiringProGenji10d ago

Sekiro has all those styles as well but you need to pull them off yourself insteas of selecting them. Sekiro’s combat is far superior

LoveSpuds10d ago

Sekiro's combat is better in my opinion too, but far superior is slightly hyperbolic. Nioh is still a fantastic game.

AspiringProGenji10d ago

Lol disagress

From Soft is apex predator when it comes to The souls formula. They created it, and Sekiro is the superior game in any way. I loved Nioh but Sekiro is just something else

I don't believe that at all. Sekiro had very simple reaction based combat. I think Nioh had better combat, and I know it has better multiplayer since Sekiro doesn't have any at all. To each their own opinion though.

They’re not the same kind of game.

rebeljoe1410d ago

But it’s trash, no one likes it. For a FromSoft game it’s absolutely a disaster in the sales numbers cause it has no weapons and way too hard for the average dark souls player without coop. It’s sucks basically

starchild10d ago

Speak for yourself. It's my favorite From Software game to date. Focusing on a single weapon allowed them to make the combat more skill based and encounters far more balanced. It's one of my favorite games of all time.

LoveSpuds10d ago

It may not be as good as Bloodborne or DarkSouls, but Sekiro is still a stellar title in my opinion. I completed it, albeit, with a few bumps in the road and I loved everything about it.

zacfoldor9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

I won't call the game trash. I disliked the combat. I missed the multiplayer, but I like/love the game. Just not my fav. I don't think I will ever play it again. That was my big takeaway after I finished it. I said, "Will I ever play this again" and my answer was a resounding, "No." With other From titles I am usually excited to keep playing. I would be curious how many people who beat the game would say that they enjoyed it but will never touch it again, lol.

artsaber10d ago

Sekiro recycles bosses a bit too much to be honest. A dude you killed not so long ago is strolling around admiring the scenery. Lol.The art style is great though.

Edito9d ago

I think the two games are just different and that's it... I didn't think about Nioh not even once while playing Sekiro.

zacfoldor9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

I agree with everything but combat. Sekiro's combat was weak compared to Nioh. So much weapon variety and fun was to be had in mastering the different weapons and that ki pulse was excellent. In Sekiro, I was hitting steel together over and over or parrying. I don't get any fun from Sekiro's combat, and only human interaction time comes into play. Frankly, it felt like quick time events, like I was playing Until Dawn or something. Not fun to me. Bloodborne and Dark Souls both had much better combat imho, but Nioh has the best.

Another way Nioh was better was its excellent online features.

Finally, Nioh also had more variety in the world, where separate stages were widely differentiated. In Sekiro I felt I was usually in the same place throughout the entire campaign.

I love both games. Sekiro's combat this time was not to my preference, and I much prefer Nioh in the combat and online department.

I do agree with killswitch80 that I wish the world was interconnected in Nioh. I got the distinct feeling that was done to save money. Hopefully with a bigger budget, they can create a more cohesive world.

Lord_Sloth9d ago

Zelda's combat, art direction, enemy variety, and level design are far superior to Mario Bros imo.

This is basically what you're saying. NiOh and Sekiro are very different games, they just both have a Japanese aesthetic.

It's already superior because when you die you return as the demon that killed you.

harmny10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

I know a way they can stand out. Release it exclusively on the epic game store

killswitch8010d ago

pretty good chance the From Software project will be since they have been training personal on UE4.

harmny10d ago

Will the gaming community turn on from software when they do that?
