Koei Tecmo has announced Nioh 2 has reached the 1 million copies sold milestone, including shipped retail units and digital downloads.

The original Nioh game has sold 3 million units since its release in 2017 between PC and PlayStation 4, while its follow up has been available only for two months on PS4.

The Japanese publisher has released the update 1.09 to celebrate the latest milestone, sharing new free content with the players of the soulslike action-adventure title.

The new content includes the Maniki Armor, which you can grab for free at your company’s “Gifts” section, and nine missions, including Shadow, Twilight and Afterglow variations.

A photo mode is now available to take pictures during gameplay, even in multiplayer sessions. An additional Spirit Guardian has been delivered: Kage can be obtained through a delivery mission, and doesn’t affect the trophy related to getting all the guardians in the game.
