Nioh is coming out in February next year, exclusive to the PS4 and is shaping up to be a game that is as challenging and punishing as Dark Souls. There have been ongoing demos of the Beta and the results of the survey of the overall impression of the game are out. It seems that the demo got a lot of things right, particularly the gameplay aspect, which is the most important. This is sure to kick up the excitement for the game a bit, because the general views on the demo of the game game are highly positive. I’ll leave you all the data below from their blog below:

Thank you to all who played the Nioh Beta Demo!
We also appreciate the tons of valuable feedback many of you also gave through our online survey. The dev team has read through the feedback and is coming up with improvements to make the final game even better.

In addition, it is safe to delete the Nioh Beta Demo game data and save data. Deleting these data will not affect the Mark of the Conqueror and the Mark of the Warrior.
Regarding the inquires we received regarding Nioh’s Mark of Conqueror (North America only), once you redeemed the mark, you will be able to receive the bonuses with the full version of the game regardless of it being in the PS4 library or not.

As you can see above, the general impressions of the game are pretty good, except for the UI part which is not much of a concern and can be changed easily. I’m pretty excited for this game.
