Nioh 2 is an upcoming action RPG game developed by Team Ninja, it’s the successor to a previously well received “Nioh” back in February of 2017. With the new Story based trailer and the release article on the PlayStation Blog, we can assess what more we can expect from the games storyline. Creative Director at Team Ninja, Tom Lee, gave pretty interesting information on the PlayStation blogspot, including the Story Trailer
It is the Warring States period in Japan. The year is 1555. Never-ending warfare has transformed the nation into a land of chaos infested by demonic yokai, evil spirits who feed upon their victims. It is in this setting of relentless mayhem that we meet our protagonist, a rogue mercenary hunting down yokai in the Mino Province. This demon hunter hides a terrible secret: they are a half-breed, the orphan offspring of both human and yokai blood. Unable to find a place amongst mankind, our demon hunter journeys alone.”Tom Lee, PlayStation Blog
The Story definitely seems to be revolve around the warring states period in Japan, the exact place has not been determined yet. But what can be determined is the plot will be much more involved and deeper to the characters and lore, unlike Dark Souls, which plot was there but did not have an actual direction, the player has to piece it together themselves. With the next interaction of the Japanese RPG, great things are expected from the DLC releases as well.
