It feels like it's been forever since the last Nioh DLC graced our presence. In fact, "Dragon of the North" showed up way back on May 2 (feel free to watch the opening on our YouTube channel).
Today, Koei Tecmo finally revealed the second of three DLC packs planned for the action RPG with Defiant Honor. You can check out a brief overview of the content update below:
Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
In the midst of this chaos, our hero William, accompanied by Date Masamune who fights alongside Tokugawa, heads towards Sanada Maru in pursuit of Maria. It is a bitter winter in Osaka and the stage is ripe for a fierce battle for the ages. Bundle up and get ready for a brutal winter showdown!
Along with the new scenario, Team Ninja has also added the deadly Tonfa weapon to William's arsenal. For those unfamiliar, it's basically like like a night stick or a baton.
There will also be new missions, sub-missions, armor sets, magic items, guardian spirits (like a sweet horse), new Yokai, and much more.
Defiant Honor will be available on July 25 and will be priced at $9.99. Of course, it is free for those who already own the season pass. We'll share more information on Defiant Honor as we near its release.
