Onyudo is a huge Yokai that appears to be a novice monk. Having been unable to sever their worldly desires, these monks in training betrayed their disciplines and fallen deep in the nadir. They collect the skulls of their victims and wear them across their shoulders like a rosary. If you do not want to be part of their collection, its best to not get close to them.
Nioh’s combat requires a level of mastery to take on countless Yokai. To get there, you may want a little help from friends, or other visitors. Through your journey, you’ll be able to summon visitors to aid you and play cooperatively to tackle the toughest demons. While the Summoner gets help from the extra player, the visitor also receives rewards when arriving at shrines, or even after engaging a boss (winning or losing). In addition, the helping visitor gets more rewards post-mission, and the Summoner can continue their quest.
In Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Known as Yokai, these demons inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players will also face off with other samurai in supernatural sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy.
