In case you didn't know already, Nioh has a cooperative component, allowing you to join up with a friend or stranger during your dangerous adventure. As is the case in the Dark Souls games, you'll be able to summon allies into your world; whether you need help with a specific boss or you just want to smash some skulls together, the option is there.

If you're wondering how it all works, then the latest PlayStation Access video, which we've embedded above, has got you covered. Naturally, teaming up with a fellow samurai can take the edge off the game's difficulty, but slaying such fearsome demons alongside a friend still looks like great fun.
