Set in a fantasy 1600s Japan, Nioh is an action RPG developed by Team Ninja and published by Sony. You take the role of an English pirate called William Adams, inspired by the real-life historical figure, William Adams. You follow William’s journey through 1600s war-torn Japan as he navigates the devastated world. Nioh’s world blends historical figures, rich cultural references, and a fantastical realm teeming with magic and demons. The combat in Nioh does not disappoint either. It’s as brutal as the world in Nioh, with challenging elements similar to the Soulsborne games. You get an HP bar for your health and a Ki bar that replaces your stamina bar. Additionally, the combat in Nioh revolves around three stances, where certain stances prove more effective against specific enemies. Nioh becomes even more fascinating as you discover the importance of strategic and optimal combat approaches. That is why Exputer will be your ultimate resource to learn more about these battle strategies and much more through our detailed guides.
