Nioh 2 is the sequel to the critical and commercial hit that was developed by Team Ninja and launched for the PS4. The sequel has now gone gold.
Nioh 2 is launching exclusively for the PS4 and will be out on March 12. The game is being published by Sony Interactive Entertainment in the Western markets and Koei Tecmo in Japan.
According to a tweet shared by the developers of the game, it has now gone gold. This is officially the last phase of development for a game. It means the final copy that has to be pressed and shipped on discs is made and after that, there are usually updates planned to launch on day one.
Nioh 2 going gold means there is no potential delay that can push its release date further from March 12. It will be out on the PS4 although there is a chance that this is just timed exclusivity and there will be a PC version later down the line.
ESRB has also rated Nioh 2 recently giving it a mature rating. The rating confirms that there will be plenty of violence, blood, and gore in the game. The rating also matches the first game so this wasn’t a big surprise.
Nioh is also considered as a spiritual successor to the Souls series. It draws inspiration from it but the focus for this game is on Japanese mythology.
