With all the rave surrounding the Dragon of the North DLC for Nioh last month, Team Ninja has recently announced that they are actually adding the finishing touches on the second DLC, Defiant Honor, which launches on July 25.
According to creative director Tom Lee, Defiant Honor will takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era, featuring the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan. 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.
This new DLC we will be delivering a deadly new weapon Tonfa, new armor, new magic items, guardian spirits and of course brand new Yokai and enemies to test your might.
New difficulty levels and Trophies will also be implemented for Defiant Honor. Legendary characters such as Sanada Yukimura who will later be revered as “the greatest warrior of all Japan” are included. All this action takes place within exciting new stages and numerous sub-missions. So, there’s plenty of combat to be held and new challenges to be mastered.
The Defiant Honor DLC comes available for purchase on the PlayStation Store for $9.99 on July 25, or free if you own a Nioh Season pass.
