Koei Tecmo officially revealed Nioh 2 back in June for E3 and it looks like the team can't wait to share even more details about the highly anticipated sequel! In a recent "New Year's Wish" celebration that Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated by Twinfinite) hosted featuring developers sharing their hopes for 2019, the team over at Tecmo couldn't help but to tease what's next.
Nioh 2 director Fumihiko Yasuda opened up that a possible big reveal could be happening in early 2019, especially regarding the upcoming successor. Since news has been pretty mum since the initial reveal - that's huge news for those looking to see what else this franchise has in store.
Additionally, Keoi Tecmo's Hisashi Koinuma and Hideaki Suzuki both touched on new games they are working on, stating that though they don't have anything to announce quite yet they are excited to share more once 2018 is officially closed out.
With the positive reviews that Koei's Attack on Titan sequel had, many are exicted to see what Koinuma-san and Suzuki-san have in store. Though we don't know what exactly is being worked on at this time, at least we know we've got something to look forward to in the near future - perhaps GDC?
