Speaking at a PlayStation Pro event earlier today, Team Ninja head Yosuke Hayashi revealed that Sony will be publishing Nioh in both Europe and North America. The PlayStation 4 exclusive is due out in February 2017, and Hayashi said that the team is working with Sony in order to "get the game into as many hands as possible".

Essentially, it sounds like the PlayStation maker will be treating the action role-playing release like it's a first-party title. What's more, Hayashi mentioned that the game will feature four different modes on PS4 Pro. We assume that they'll let you toggle between higher frame rates and better graphical quality.
