Try Nioh 2 Before Release in the Last Chance Trial

Nioh 2 Demon

We’ll soon be getting one final chance to try Team Ninja’s Nioh 2 before launch, with the Last Chance Trial running from February 28th until March 1st.

GameSpew editor Rich managed to briefly sit down with Nioh 2 at Sony’s London offices earlier this month, and it got him very excited indeed (let’s not forget, we gave the original Nioh a perfect 10/10 score when it launched). So if you haven’t taken advantage of Nioh 2‘s previous trials, you’ll want to give it a go at the end of this month. As the name “Last Chance Trial” suggests, this will be your final opportunity before the game launches on March 13th.

A prequel to the original game, Nioh 2 will once again be a brutal action RPG infused with tradional Japanese mythology and history. You play as your own custom character, using powerful weapons and yōkai spirit abilities to fight gruesome, deadly enemies.


You will get a chance to explore Nioh 2‘s character customisation in the trial, and you will be abe to carry your samurai’s appearance over into the full game if you wish! Three missions have been selected for you to test your skills, so get ready to venture forth up Mount Tenno to face the vicious creatures that dwell there.

Trial Start: Friday, February 28 at 12:00am PT (Midnight)
Trial End: Sunday, March 1 at 11:59pm PT

Nioh 2 will be coming to the PlayStation 4 on March 13th. Head over to the PlayStation blog for more information on the Last Chance Trial, or the main PlayStation site for general information about the game.
