Sony Publishing Nioh Outside Japan




Team Ninja and Sony have made a rather important announcement regarding Nioh. While Koei Tecmo will publish the game in Japan, Sony will be publishing the PlayStation 4 game in North America, Europe, and Asia next year. In addition, the game will have multiple settings for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, to make sure it looks and performs in the way people expect.


The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 display settings for Nioh are as follows. The standard PlayStation 4 will have three options to choose from. PlayStation 4 Pro owners will have two HD display and two 4K display options, so people have the best option for their TV.

    This mode focuses on resolution over frame rate, offering beautiful high resolution graphics with stable 30fps
  • PS4, Option 2: “Action Mode”
