Sony has a lot of interest in Nioh, and now it is clear why; they will be publishing the title in both North America and Europe.

It’s not long until Nioh hits shelves next year and to say we are excited is an understatement! Bringing it to you has taken some work, but we’re happy to announce that Nioh will now be published in partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment across Europe, America and Asia (excluding Japan).
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to try out our alpha and beta demos earlier this year, Nioh is an intricate action RPG built around deep and authentic samurai combat. Gruelling encounters with other warriors and supernatural creatures await you around every corner in this grotesque vision of civil war ravaged Japan. You’ll need to embrace every defeat as a step along the path to victory.

This is great news, as it will help the game not only fall into more hands but get exposure as a pillar Sony title for 2017. In addition to this announcement, the game will be supporting the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro with a lot of different modes.

  • PS4, Option 1: “Movie Mode”
    This mode focuses on resolution over frame rate, offering beautiful high resolution graphics with stable 30fps
  • PS4, Option 2: “Action Mode”
    Here the emphasis is on frame rate, providing a stable 60fps
  • PS4, Option 3: “Movie Mode (Variable frame rate)”
    Finally, this option provides high resolution graphics with a variable frame rate that may go over 30fps.
  • PS4 Pro, HD display. Option 1: “Movie Mode”
    Stable 1920×1080 resolution with high quality anti-aliasing at 30fps
  • PS4 Pro, HD display. Option 2: “Action Mode”
    Stable 1920×1080 resolution at 60fps
  • PS4 Pro, 4K display. Option 1: “Movie Mode”
    Stable 3840×2160 resolution at 30fps
  • PS4 Pro, 4K display. Option 2: “Action Mode”
    Stable 1920×1080 resolution at 60fps

That is a lot of graphical options for the title and one of the few times we get a lot of graphical customization for a title on the original PS4 console. Some games did this (like Last of Us Remastered) but this is still a nice surprise. The game being a pillar PS4 Pro title makes sense and it is great seeing that platform get a lot of graphical options.
