KOEI TECMO Games just announced today the upcoming release of celebrated dark fantasy action-RPG Nioh: Complete Edition on PC via Steam. Met with both critical and commercial success during its original console launch, the game telling the story of the blonde-haired swordsman makes its PC debut on November 7th, 2017 as Nioh: Complete Edition, packed with hours of extra content as it will include the original version of Nioh and all three DLC expansions: ‘Dragon of the North’, ‘Defiant Honour’, and ‘Bloodshed’s End’.
Calling PC gamers to “#DefyDeath”, Director Fumihiko Yasuda comments: “Team NINJA is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of “Nioh”. I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.”
The digital-only PC release boasts:
- stunning high-resolution graphics
- over two modes as Nioh: Complete Edition can be enjoyed either on ‘Action Mode’, featuring a stable 60fps, or on ‘Movie Mode’, a cinematic option that can expand the display resolution to 4K.
To celebrate the release of Nioh: Complete Edition on Steam, Team NINJA is offering players a brand-new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet. The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of “kawari-kabuto”—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to “Valve Kabuto,” but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…
