After teasing yesterday that it would drop a new trailer for Nioh 2, Sony has delivered with an all-new look at the game -- this time placing a large emphasis on its story. The title is a prequel to the 2017 original so no prior knowledge is required for those interested in checking out the experience launching March 2020. Take a look at the trailer above for more context.

The two minutes of footage debuts lots of new characters along with Spirit Guardians to boot. Here's a quick summary from the PlayStation Blog detailing what to expect:

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.
