"Calling PC gamers to "#DefyDeath", Director Fumihiko Yasuda comments: "Team NINJA is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of "Nioh".
Having received a lot of critical acclaim, it's great to see this game being put in the hands of more gamers like this. Those who pick up the game on PC's premiere digital distribution service will also get a new item called the Wheel of Dharma; a helmet with a giant Valve on it, because why the hell not?
"The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of "kawari-kabuto"-a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs", explains Koei Tecmo". This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. It's described as a 'holy image that represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one's wordly desires...'.
Players will also be able to play the game in Action Mode, which ensures a stable 60 FPS, and Movie Mode, which gives you the chance to experience Nioh in 4k. "Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to "Valve Kabuto", but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear", the press release explains.
Unlike the PS4 version, Nioh: Complete Edition will have all seven weapon types, ninjutsu and onmyo magics unlocked from the beginning.
Celebrated dark-fantasy action-RPG Nioh is finally coming to PC in a month's time. Finishing the core game will grant incremental access to deeper levels of The Abyss, a series of punishing end-game dungeons, and unlock features like the Dual Guardian Spirit.
Nioh will be out this November and presumably will be available on Steam. Its three DLCs add new areas, side-quests, equipment, enemies, and main missions concluding William's story.
