Nioh PS4

Developer Team Ninja hasn't got a bad word to say at the moment. After impressing us once again at a Nioh 2 preview event ahead of the sequel's release next month, it has now been revealed that the original game is even more of a sales success than we thought. The series' official Twitter account announced overnight that Nioh has passed three million copies sold worldwide.

That's through a combination of digital sales and copies shipped to stores across the globe, building upon the studio's previous update from February 2019 where it reached the milestone of 2.5 million. It's welcome news for a thriving series on PlayStation 4, but its sequel is in great shape to top this record. "This is going to be a PS4 exclusive worthy of your attention" is how we signed off on our latest hands on piece with Nioh 2.

Are you one of those three million purchasers of Nioh? Are you excited about the sequel launching next month? Show us a Yokai skill in the comments below.
