Nioh 2 – PS4 Interview | E3 2018


DID THE TEAM HAVE A PARTICULAR PHILOSOPHY IN THEIR WORK. [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>SO MY GOAL FOR THIS NIOH 2 WILL BE A PROPER EVOLUTION, A NATURAL EVOLUTION, NOT DRAMATIC CHANGE, NOT OBVIOUSLY DETERIORATE, BUT WHAT IS — BECAUSE IN THE FIRST TITLE, ALTHOUGH WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH HOW IT WAS RECEIVED, BUT THERE WERE THINGS WE COULDN’T ACCOMPLISH AT THE SAME TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO STRENGTHEN WHAT WE DID WELL, AT THE SAME TIME FIX SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT COULDN’T BE DONE IN TIME. SO, YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN IN THE NIOH 2.>>WHAT ARE SOME OF THE LESSONS THAT THE TEAM LEARNED DUING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FIRST GAME THAT YOU ARE KEEPING IN MIND WHILE DEVELOPING NIOH 2? [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>TEAM NINJA, WE ARE KNOWN FOR CREATING ACTION GAMES. BUT NIOH ON THE OTHER HAND IT WAS FIRST ACTION RPG THAT WE EVER DEALT WITH. IN SOME OF THE GAME BALANCING, IN THE RPG DEPARTMET, AND SOME OF THE GAME UPDATES HAD CERTAIN ISSUES THAT PLAYERS MIGHT NOT NECESSARILY WERE HAPPY WITH, SO THAT IS SOMETHING I WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE ON AND WILL DO BETTER THIS TIME.>>BEFORE WE GET TO THE QUESTIONS WE CAN RUN FOOTAGE OF THE GAME ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR THE AUDIENCE AS WE GET TO THE NEXT QUESTION. I AM INTERESTED TO SEE HOW THE STORY FITS INTO THE STORY OF THE LARGER CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT YOUR TEAM HAS DONE SO FAR. [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>YES, IT TIES IN WITH THE FIRST STORY. HOW TIME AND SETTING, THOSE WE WILL REVEAL IN THE COMING DAYS. TO ME, I FEEL THAT PEOPLE WHO HAS NEVER PLAYED NIOH 1 COULD ENJOY THE STORY. IT WILL BE EVEN MORE SO FOR PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T — SORRY. FOR PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY PLAYED THE FIRST GAME. THIS IS JUST SALES TALK, BUT NIOH, RIGHT NOW IS ON SALE. WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE PEOPLE WHO HAS NEVER TRIED THE GAME TO GIVE IT A TRY.>>NICE PLUG.>>DID THE WAY THAT PLAYERS REACTED TO THE FIRST GAME INFLUENCE THE TEAM WHEN CREATING NIOH 2?>>CAN YOU REPEAT THAT QUESTION AGAIN?>>DID THE WAY THE PLAYERS REACTED TO THE FIRST GAME INFLUENCE THE WAY THEY APPROACHED NIOH 2?   [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>WE DID TWO DEMOS BEFORE THE FIRST NIOH WAS LAUNCHED. TRULY GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF THE FEEDBACK WE RECEIVED FROM OUR FANS. HAVING SAID THAT, AFTER THE GAME WAS LAUNCHED, ONE OF THE BIGGEST REQUESTS THAT WE HAD WAS TO HAVE THE CHARACTER CREATION. THAT’S SOMETHING WE ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT IN THE SECOND ONE.>>OH, COOL.>>PLAYERS WILL DEFINITELY BE ABLE TO CUSTOMIZE ALL OF THE DETAILS INCLUDING LIKE GENDER AND RACE.>>ANOTHER THING THAT I AM CURIOUS ABOUT, WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES THE SERIES OR MAKES THIS GAME UNIQUE OR SETS IT APART FROM OTHER THIRD PERSON ACTION ORIENTED GAMES?>>[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>THE CLOSE QUARTER COMBAT SYSTEM WE HAVE SOME VERY JAPANESE — WE HAVE CERTAIN ELEMENTS THAT ARE UNIQUELY JAPANESE STYLE LIKE THE KEY PULSE AND THE STANCES OF THE WEAPONS. IN ADDITION TO THAT, MAYBE THE FACT THAT BOTH THE PLAYER AND THE ENEMY HAVE THE BAR, THAT’S SOMETHING UNIQUE TO NIOH.>>EXCELLENT.>>JUSTIN, YOU WANT TO TAKE THE LAST ONE? [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] CHLOR CLEAR >>OO>>JUST TO SUPPLEMENT AS WE ARE WATCHING THE TRAILER, HE POSSESSES THE POWER OF YOKI. SAMURAI VERSES YUKI, SAMURAI VERSES SAMURAI. WE WILL HAVE YUKI VERSES SAMURAI AND YUKI VERSES SAMURAI AS WELL. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FEEL SOME OF THE YUKI SKILLS AND YUKI MOVES. THIS SHOULD BRING THE ACTION SYSTEM TO THE NEXT LEVEL.>>LAST QUESTION, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT THE TEAM NEEDS TO GET RIGHT WITH NIOH 2? [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>FIRST OF ALL, AS A MASS CORE GAME, WE WILL MAKE IT SATISFYING AGAIN, IN THAT I WOULD LAKE TO MAKE HIM MORE — THIS SOUNDS WEIRD, WE WANTED TO HAVE MORE SATISFYING DEATHS FOR PLAYERS. [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >>WHILE TEAM NINJA WILL DO ITS BEST TO BRING EVERYBODY THE BEST PRODUCT, WE DON’T WANT IT TO BE JUST OUR SUBJECTIVE OPINION, SO AS WE DID IN NIOH, WE BRING EVERYBODY THE FREE DEMO AGAIN TO GET YOUR FEEDBACK AND MAKE THIS GAME RIGHT.>>THERE YOU GO.>>TOM, WE HAVEN’T HEARD FROM YOU AT ALL. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WANT TO GIVE A MESSAGE TO ALL OF THE NIOH FANS OF THE WORLD OVER BEFORE WE LET YOU GO.>>SURE. YOU KNOW, FIRST OF ALL WE WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY FOR MAKING NIOH A SUCCESS, AND HAVING SAID THAT, I THINK JUST TO KIND OF DRAW A COMPARISON OF WHERE WE WERE AND WHERE WE ARE AT, I THINK WITH NIOH IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME GETTING INTO THAT GENRE, AND TO BE QUITE HONEST, YOU KNOW, AS PART OF OUR TEAM, WE WERE A LITTLE BIT CAUTIOUS, AND IT WAS SORT OF TREPIDACIOUS IN THAT SENSE. I THINK THIS TIME AROUND, WITH THE EXPERIENCE THAT WE HAVE GAINED, AND OBVIOUSLY ALL OF THE ENCOURAGEMENT AND THE SUPPORT WE HAVE, WE HAVE GAINED A LOT OF CONFIDENCE AS WELL. THINKING BACK, THERE WERE A LOT OF THINGS WE DIDN’T GET TO DO. BUT THIS TIME AROUND, I GUESS THE SIMPLE WAY FOR ME TO PUT THIS IS, THE GLOVES ARE OFF. WE ARE GOING TO GO IN HARD. I HOPE THE FANS ARE READY FOR IT. I THINK THIS EXPERIENCE IS GOING TO BE, YOU KNOW, CLOSE TO WHAT WE HAD IN MIND. I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO PLAY IT.>>THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN, SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR WATCHING AT HOME. THAT WAS A LOOK AT NIOH 2, AND HEARING FROM THE TEAM NINJA CREW, AND IT’S SO NICE TO HAVE THEM HERE. IT IS ALSO NICE WE ARE ABOUT TO SEE MORE FROM ANTHEM FROM BIOWARE IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. DON’T GO

    When it comes to rng and creating a pool of items which spawn different attributes, the key is to tailor those items to give the character more personality in their playstyle. It adds an exponential level of replayability and inspires the player to start again saying- what if…. This transcends the farming nature of the game and keep people focused on the gameplay itself.

    Enemies and you have stamina meter….yes, but most enemies that are not the basic enemies almost never run out of stamina. Against other samurais its a fcking pain to try to get their stamina down. They can drain your stamina in 1-2 hits.

    I was very surprised to see Nioh 2 in the Sony lineup. I'm happy that the team listened to feedback and made changes to make the sequel better. My only thing though….if it's multi-platform. If it's on PC, I'll gladly buy it.

    As a Dark Souls/Bloodborne fan I loved Nioh, super happy to hear about Nioh 2, never saw it coming.

    Reply
  • Bort

    Nah. Only reason I was interested in Nioh was that it took a lot of inspiration from Soulsborne. With Sekiro coming, doesn't seem like I'll need to bother with it.

    Please make a Character Creation right. I always don't like Character Creation in Souls, BB. I think they looks weird. I really really want to adjust every part of my character whether legs, arms, breast, face. If it happen to be something like Black Desert then I would be very happy. I can see myself spend like 2-3 hours just for creating my character.

    Nioh has a lot of DLCs, luckily I waited for the PC complete edition. I'll do the same with Nioh 2, there's so much better games than Nioh

    Playing the complete edition atm and I really love it. I don't love it cause it reminds me of dark souls. I love it cause it reminds me of onimusha. I feel like a kid again

    Just fix the equipment scaling and I'd be happy. Wasn't fun to try out new playstyles when newly acquired gear felt underpowered within a few missions and you had to spend quite a few resources to bring it up to par with where you were at. I loved the different difficulties but don't have the player beat the game five or six times to reach end game gear.

    2 of the most important questions weren't asked.
    1. Will there be one single open map or just some small mission areas like in Nioh 1?
    2. Will there be more variety in enemy design? Nioh 1 to me felt like there were only 5-10 different enemies.

    besides that nigh 1 was an awesome game and i can't wait to get my hands on the second one!

    will we be able to customize our yokai form? if so to what extent? I personally would love a highly customizable experience, I'm talking a detailed CAC with a yokai form thats fully customizable. introducing a smithing system where you can fully customize weapons and armor, meaning looks skills and abilities. basically I want to tailor my experience to me.

    Jeez man the comments in here.
    Most top comments just want the same game that every other studio is putting out
    I say they should really make a game with character that has its own merits even if it carries flaws
    Not every ge needs to be open world
    Not every game needs to be just attacks and dodges
    And hopefully not every game needs to be watered down to the lowest common denominator

    I really love Nioh 1 actually had 500+hrs in it the only complain i have in the game is the loot system is too much and really having too much time on item management and crafting sometimes i got stuck for hours on that. I hope they'll make it more simple on Nioh 2..
