A big batch of screenshots for Nioh have been released, showcasing the stunning new locales and evil yokai that will no doubt find justice at the end of William’s blade. From Ninja Gaiden developer Team Ninja, and packing a few heavy nods to the Souls series, it’s easy to see why Nioh is getting action fans pulses racing.

I mean, obviously these have been given a quick spray of eau de Photoshop to get looking this sharp, but damn does Nioh look great and pack some fantastic art direction.That last screenshot in particular is mind blowing, giving even Bloodborne’s demonic bosses a brun for their money. This only me makes me hope even harder that the rumours of a PC port are true. Imagine how fantastic Nioh could look powered by a GTX 1080 on a 4K monitor. Swoon.

Nioh is coming to PlayStation 4 on February 7th in North America and February 8th in Europe. Each trailer we’ve seen for Nioh so far has said Console Exclusive rather than PlayStation 4 Exclusive, which usually suggests there’s nothing to stop Team Ninja developing a PC version further down the line.
