Some cool news this week involving Nioh 2 as we've learned there will be a new playable demo at Tokyo Game Show 2019. In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Team Ninja's creative director Tom Lee briefly chatted up the fans about the alpha demo and also announced that we'll see a demo of the game at TGS 2019. Plus, we got to see a bunch of new images from the game, some of which we have here.
I also wanted to thank you and briefly let you know that we had a really productive alpha demo session back in May/June of this year. Over 50,000 players took part in this closed demo worldwide and nearly 18,000 participants responded to our survey afterwards! The overwhelming majority of opinions were very positive and supportive of the demo as we received tons of comments and constructive feedback for us to analyze. And since then, we have been hard at work to process all of that data and make the necessary adjustments to create an even more exceptional experience. Thanks again to everyone who participated in the alpha demo survey. We can't wait to share the progress with you guys!
Speaking of which, we will be showing off a brand new consumer demo at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 in September. I can't really disclose the specifics at this point, but more details will definitely be coming down the pipe soon. So stay tuned Yokai hunters! And prepare to unleash your darkness as Nioh 2 is on the horizon!
