Nioh Update 1.23 and Nioh 2 Update 1.24 Prepares The Game For PS5

Nioh and its sequel have been updated today by Team Ninja ahead of the launch of the complete edition for the PS5. This update adds cross-save support.

First up, we have a general update for Nioh and its complete edition on PS4 that “expands functionality”. If you have the game installed, it should be patched to version 1.23 on PS4.

Next up, we have a major update for Nioh 2 and its complete edition on PS4. This appears to add cross-save support for the game so that users can transfer their PS4 save data to the PS5. Keep in mind this support isn’t likely included in the original Nioh.

Nioh 2 Update 1.24 Patch Notes

Additional functions

  • Cross-save management function added
    You can select this function via the SYSTEM option at the title screen.
    Save data from the PS4 version can be uploaded, then downloaded to the PS5 version, allowing you to continue playing. (It is also possible to transfer from the PS5 version to the PS4 version.)
    – To download the save data, access must be done through the same PSN account as the one originally used to upload.
    – Trophies are handled differently in the PS5 and PS4 versions. Some trophies that have already been earned (those that are difficult to earn again) will be automatically acquired when the save data is loaded.
  • PS5 version cross-matching support
    -The PS5 version does not allow matching by Friends. To play with a specific user, please use a password.
