Nioh 2 Director Fumihiko Yasuda wants to build a game that uses PS5 haptic feedback capabilities

From DailyBits: Nioh 2 Director Fumihiko Yasuda wants to innovate with new experiences by building a game that utilises the PlayStation 5’s haptic feedback capabilities.

“We considered a lot of different ideas for how to support these features [in Nioh 2]”, he told DailyBits. “For a really intense action game, utilizing the haptic feedback too much may take away from the player’s experience with the game and could hurt their overall enjoyment of the title.”


Admin note: Yasuda has already said the story of Nioh is complete and there currently aren't any plans at all for a Nioh 3. I've updated the title to remove the reference to a Nioh 3 created by the author.

So which is it, the story has come to an end, or its ending because as some say the second game flopped, or are we really going to get a next installment.

"Yasuda-san also suggested that, although the team are focusing on new projects for now, a follow-up to Nioh 2 remains a possibility."

“The plan for now is to have the Nioh team move on to work on new projects after the release of Nioh 2 Complete Edition. In order to ensure that future titles, including the possibility of Nioh 3, are titles that all of our fans can enjoy and look forward to, we are putting all of our effort into Nioh 2 CE.”

Can that really be considered a hint at a new Nioh game, or just wishful thinking on the authors part.

I'd like a sequel but if the second game is selling slower during a time everyone is indoors playing games then it would be better to try something different business wise

Thats probably due in part to other samurai type games also on the market around the same time. The formula to some might have gotten a bit stale if they've played Seriko and or Ghost of Tsushima before trying Nioh. Or that the dark souls-esque type game play is finally taking its toll on some.

Pretty much a click-bait article.

Welcome to game journalism!

Personally I don't get tired of samurais and Japanese culture so I don't see how others could get burnt out if they like it

Abnor_Mal38d ago (Edited 38d ago )

Kindred spirit, but we have to account for those that do as unbelievable as it is there are some who do not like the culture as much and would feel burnt out after one or two games.

To be clear I did not mean all three games have the exact play style.

Yes the story is done but they could still continue with another successor to the series like what dark souls, bloodborne, or sekiro is to demons souls. Itd just be in a different era, mythology or place, a new story, a new title, a new universe etc. Theyve said themselves theyd like to take that approach. I dont get why people are saying the reason the story is done is because the game did bad sales wise lol. Im pretty sure it did well and it was a great game.
The next game could be in china with their mythology or heck even egypt. I say China because of dynasty warriors lol.

No idea if you read the article or not..

"With Nioh CE and Nioh 2 CE, the story that we had built has come to an end. It’s reached a good point in the story where all the loose ends are tied up, so there are no plans for a sequel at this point. Of course, it’s something that is still possible in the future and that we will consider at a later date."
The series can come back and it deserves a comeback. he never they killed the IP

I'm just saying we already had an article saying the story has come to an end. So why is there an article now talking about the possibility of another game. Just because something is brought up in a round about way does not mean its a hint to a new game.

Thats like the creator of Qbert being asked in an interview if there's anything he would have done differently and he gives a similar statement and everyone starts losing it thinking its a hint to a new game and start out putting articles claiming as such.

The series can come back and it deserves to come back, they never killed the IP.

Anything is possible.

And I'm not saying the series needs to be dead and can't come back, or doesn't deserve to come back.

I think a horror-themed game will work brilliantly.
Imagine being chased by an invisible specter and the only way to know if its near you is through the haptic feedback

Nioh 2 probably just didn't do well enough to warrant a sequel. Hope whatever they do next builds on its foundation though, the combat is really deep and super fun but there's still something missing from the formula. I think they need some world builders, it felt like PS2 era level design and story progression.
