Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced that Nioh 2 is now gold.
The Japanese developer has completed development on the 2017 soulslike’s follow up, so there are no more obstacles ahead for the March 13, 2020 release.
Team Ninja will now be free to work on post-launch additional content for the PlayStation 4 exclusive action game, which include three major DLC with stories set before the core title.
Each DLC will introduce new weapons, combat abilities, and characters, as well as a range of main story missions and side missions. Those are all included in the Season Pass.
The studio is also looking ahead, and has the will to work on a brand new intellectual property for PlayStation 5 if it has the opportunity. That would mean no Nioh 3 coming shortly, though.
Such considerations will likely depend on Nioh 2‘s commercial performance, which are set to be rather good as the original game has sold 3 million copies and its follow up’s open beta has been download around 700,000 times.
