Those of you patiently waiting for the new DLC Nioh: Defiant Honor to be made available on the PlayStation 4, will be pleased to know that it is now available directly from the PlayStation Store.
Defiant Honor takes you to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era, providing access to the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan.
Tom Lee Creative Director Team Ninja explains more :
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer! To help you cool down and slide back into the action, check out the brand new winter battlefield on our second DLC: Defiant Honor, available now at PlayStation Store. As I’ve mentioned previously, William will be facing off with the renowned samurai Sanada Yukimura. Our director Yasuda-san and many members of the team regard Yukimura as the greatest and last true samurai. His brave heroics and fearlessness in the face of death epitomizes the spirit of the samurai — a perfect warrior in many respects, and for a game that is profoundly focused on life and death we could not think of a better candidate as the toughest adversary in Nioh.
Did you know that his clan’s crest is made up of six coins representing the passage of the dead crossing the Sanzu River? A tradition similar to Greek mythology of the River Styx for fallen warriors on their way to the afterlife. We wanted to pay homage to this incredible legend by meticulously crafting his design. We hope you will enjoy battling it out with the great Yukimura!
In Defiant Honor, you will also encounter one of the most formidable ninja of this era: Sarutobi Sasuke. Upon mastering multiple ninjutsu techniques from all corners of Japan, Sasuke joined the Togakushi school and became Yukimura’s trusted eyes and ears as well as his most fearsome guard. As fate would have it, Sasuke ultimately will cross paths with the legendary Hattori Hanzo in a ninja confrontation for the ages.
