Team Ninja has announced that Nioh's 2nd DLC, Defiant Honor, will launch on the 25th of July.
Defiant Honor takes players to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honour above all else.
As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
In the midst of this chaos, our hero William, accompanied by Date Masamune who fights alongside Tokugawa, head towards Sanada Maru in pursuit of Maria. It is a bitter winter in Osaka and the stage is ripe for a fierce battle for the ages. Bundle up and get ready for a brutal winter showdown.
This DLC will introduce a deadly new weapon Tonfa, new armour, new magic items, guardian spirits and of course brand new Yokai and enemies to test your mettle. New difficulty levels and Trophies will also be implemented for Defiant Honor. Legendary characters such as Sanada Yukimura who will later be revered as “the greatest warrior of all Japan” are included.
Definat Honor will be available to purchase from PlayStation Store for $9.99/£7.99/€9.99. Those who own the Season Pass can download the upcoming DLC for free.
