The Nioh Collection Is Coming to PS5 Next Year

Play both Niohs at ridiculously high frame rates.

The third DLC expansion for Nioh 2 is on its way, and with it, a new collection of Nioh, bringing the action to next-gen consoles. Both Nioh and Nioh 2 are getting a special remaster, as well as a new collection bringing it to the PS5.

Via today's PlayStation blog, the third DLC for Nioh 2 "The First Samurai" will arrive on Dec. 17, 2020 for current Nioh 2 owners. It will act as a conclusion to the story of Nioh 2, adding challenging missions and enemies, as well as an added difficulty level.

Then, on Feb. 5, 2021, several new versions of both Nioh and Nioh 2 will launch. Nioh 2 — The Complete Edition will come to PlayStation 4, while PlayStation 5 gets both Nioh Remastered and Nioh 2 Remastered, which are part of a bundle called the Nioh Collection.

Nioh 2's Complete Edition will contain all three DLC expansion packs as well as the base Nioh 2 adventure. Both remasters for the PS5 will also have the entirety of both Nioh and Nioh 2's DLC in the Collection. Content isn't the only upgrade, though; the PS5 will, according to today's blog, support 4K resolution and up to 120 FPS, ultra-fast load times, and the ability to transfer data from the PS4.

If you already own Nioh 2 on the PS4, you can upgrade to Nioh 2 Remastered on PS5 and get the PS5 version of any DLC you own as well. Anyone who picks up Nioh 2 — The Complete Edition on PS4 can also upgrade to the PS5 version of that edition at no cost. It's worth noting that Koei Tecmo also announced the upgraded Nioh 2 is coming to PC as well.

Nioh has managed to stand out above the other Souls-like clones, thanks to its solid combat and interesting setting. The recent Nioh 2 took an interesting veer into more spiritual combat territory, while the original Nioh was a standout successor to the Souls title. Having both these games carry forward into the next generation is already cool, but I'm interested to see what they look like running at a titanic 120 FPS.

The Nioh Collection and its various remasters arrive on Feb. 5, 2021 for PlayStation 5.
