[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#FF6B13″ class=”” size=”19″]When choosing new Yokai to implement, we go far beyond simply choosing the most popular or well-known versions. Instead, we meticulously select each creature based on their unique characteristics to effectively complement specific integrations. This approach ensures a wide range of variation and scope, which is super important in keeping players engaged and challenged![/perfectpullquote]
As for the new Nioh 2 trailer, it shows off some intense battles, a glimpse at some of the Yokai you will be able to summon and the intense boss fights including a giant rat with swords for arms and its tail.
