The launch of the PlayStation 5 could have gone better in terms of stock and general availability, but one thing that most people will agree on is the fact that regardless of scarcity, the PlayStation 5 had one of the better launch lineups for a console.
For me and probably many others, Bluepoint Game’s Demons Soul’s remake made the launch of Sony’s latest console worth it. Flash forward a few months after launch and several playthroughs under my belt, I needed a new game to satisfy that itch left by From Software’s reimagined classic. Thankfully The Nioh Collection on the PlayStation 5 is a great addition to the still burgeoning console for both newcomers and veterans alike.
For the uninitiated, Both Nioh 1 and 2, in essence, are games that heavily borrow from the tried and tested soulsborne formula while flourishing them with a distinct Koei Techmo inspired approach to game design. In particular, Nioh 1 Remastered will feel the most familiar to Souls fans, with the game mostly sticking to its established design philosophies, such as as reliance on a stamina bar and a currency system that replaces souls with amrita, complete with the risk and rewards associated with them.
