Ready for some more brutal combat and epic storylines? Good, because the Nioh 2 release date has been set. Though it won't be this year, Nioh 2 has been confirmed for a March launch of 2020 for PlayStation 4. 

With the beta coming up fast starting tomorrow, players are understandably anxious for what's next for this budding franchise. A new trailer from Team Ninja launched showing off what gamers can expect from the beta as well as pre-order bonuses. Check it out below:  

"Master the lethal arts of the samurai as a mysterious half-human, half-supernatural Yokai warrior, in this challenging action RPG sequel," boasts the video's description. "Explore violent Sengoku-era Japan and the deadly Dark Realm, both plagued with grotesque, merciless demons."

We're excited to see where this series goes because the first one was pure magic. From the incredibly satisfying combat, to the amazing storyline - everything about Nioh was a perfect blend to draw gamers in and looks like the sequel is going to have what it takes to continue on that same path of enjoyment.
