Nioh 2's alpha test got underway yesterday, but footage of the early beta is already surfacing across the internet. Thanks to YouTube user Shirrako, we've got almost four hours worth of gameplay to munch on that those lucky enough to be invited are playing right now. Check out the first part above, while the second dose of 96 minute action can be found here.

We haven't had the chance to watch every second of footage just yet, but what we have seen has left us impressed and seriously anticipating the Koei Tecmo follow-up. It's all looking good and stable too, which hopefully means a release this year isn't out of the realms of possibility.

We're not entirely sure if the YouTube user in question is breaking any sort of embargo by uploading the footage, so you might want to get in on these two videos quick. Order a Saturday night takeaway and cosy up with a loved one for this slice of Nioh 2 action, then let us know what you think in the comments below.
