    Smash PlayStation hit Nioh is coming to PC this Fall, Koei Tecmo announced today:

    Calling PC gamers to “#DefyDeath”, Director Fumihiko Yasuda comments: “Team NINJA is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of "Nioh”. I am thrilled to announce that this masocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.”

    The digital-only PC release boasts stunning high-resolution graphics over two modes as Nioh: Complete Edition can be enjoyed either on ‘Action Mode’, featuring a stable 60fps, or on ‘Movie Mode’, a cinematic option that can expand the display resolution to 4K. These new enhanced graphical modes bring the dark and beautiful world of Nioh to life like never before.

    To celebrate the release of Nioh: Complete Edition on Steam, Team NINJA is offering players a brand-new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet. The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of "kawari-kabuto"—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one's worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to "Valve Kabuto," but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…

    Movie mode expands to 4k? Does this mean that it's restricted to 30FPS? Yeah good luck with that.

    Oh another ex-clusive!

    Thanks to devout ps4 gamers for funding this, I'll play it for free and at 1080/60 on PC.

    I'm glad that its coming to PC but i despise Koei Tecmo on the PC platform so much. Their ports are terrible, the support is terrible, intentionally makes games run and look worse than the console versions and i'm pretty sure its gonna be the same with Nioh. Never gonna forget the service they gave with Atelier series, Blue Reflection, One Piece PW3, Dead or Alive 5 and others. I wouldn't be surprised if they fuck up this one too.

    PC gamers will be blamed if sales aren't enough for KT, though. I mean, come on.. What company gives you 4k, but seemingly locked at 30FPS? What's the point?

    but as pc mustard race owner we will pay 40bucks lesser and have a more improved and bug free version, definitely worth it...

    I think that cap ain't true. Kinda weird to lock their games in graphical/performance modes when their older games and games in general on PC are self adjustable. I'm pretty sure there's gonna be a "mode" where you can adjust the settings yourself.

    I honestly hope so. The news leaves little for interpretation.

    I guess that "Only on Playstation 4" tag means nothing. I don't own a PS4 or have any interest in the game, I just find that tag funny as hell.

    There will be some rigs powerful enough to push it at 4K 60 FPS, but we're probably talking mostly the GTX 1080Ti area unless optimization is top-notch (or the textures aren't actually 4K). Perfectly happy playing it at 1440p60.

    Glad to see, but I hope they don't ruin the PC port. Koei Tecmo have made a nasty reputation for themselves in that regard.

    I don't think they're actually going to restrict it to only two resolutions, it's just shitty marketing talk. If it goes to 4K, it can surely be set to anything below that too. Worst case, you have to change it in an .ini file.

    Also easily fixed/modded. Just some form of vsync or frame smoothing I'm sure, since 60 is achievable.

    Considering that games like Fallout and Dark Souls have some weird physics that are tied to the FPS and the fact that mods aren't the answer to dev laziness... If that's what it comes to, then that's all I need to know.

    I've got a beefy system and love to stress it. A game forcing an FPS lock is just meh.
