The 3rd month of 2020 looks incredibly promising, with a lot of interesting games around the corner. While everyone is waiting for the new Doom, here are some other titles that you shouldn’t miss.
After a great success of the original, it didn’t take long before Team Ninja announced that Nioh 2 is in the works. While it holds some resemblance to the Dark Souls series (particularly the difficulty), Nioh was original enough and offered rich and addictive combat mechanics. With Nioh 2, Team Ninja plans to move away from this inspiration and strengthen their vision. This is actually a prequel, where you will be playing as ninja imbued with the Yokai spirit, which will give you special skills. You can expect more weapons, new enemies, and a ridiculously deep skill tree. The gameplay looks very good. This might be the most promising of the games around the corner and we are ready to dive in once again into the world of ancient Japan.
