Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced that Nioh 2 is now gold.\n\n\n\nThe Japanese developer has completed development on the 2017 souls-likes follow up, so there are no more obstacles ahead for the March 13, 2020 release.\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/nioh_game\/status\/1227517701410709504\n\n\n\n\nTeam Ninja will now be free to work on post-launch additional content for the PlayStation 4 exclusive action game, which includes three major DLC with stories set\u00a0before the core title. \n\n\n\nEach 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.\n\n\n\nThe studio is also looking ahead and has the will to work on a brand\u00a0new intellectual property for PlayStation 5\u00a0if it has the opportunity. That would mean no\u00a0Nioh 3\u00a0coming shortly, though. \n\n\n\nhowever, such considerations will likely depend on\u00a0Nioh 2's financial performance, which is set to be somewhat reasonable as the original game has sold 3 million copies, and its follow up's open beta has been download\u00a0around 700,000 times.
