It seems players are very eager to die and die again. Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced that shipments and digital sales of Nioh 2, the sequel to its masocore 2017 hit Nioh, have topped two million total units. In addition to that feat, the series has moved a combined total of around five million units, making it relatively successful.
The news came about on Twitter, with Team Ninja giving fans a morsel of what’s to come next. “Please look forward to the next new title from Team Ninja,” reads a rough translation of the Tweet. That’s unlikely to be a Nioh 3, as Nioh 2 director Fumihiko Yasuda previously stated that Team Ninja was finished with the series for now. We probably won’t be seeing this deadly samurai game again for a number of years.
That doesn’t mean you should get all depressed about Nioh. Team Ninja is clearly happy with the results of both titles and is even holding a Twitter contest to celebrate the occasion. Anyone that follows the official Nioh account and retweets the two million sales message will have a chance at winning a Kodama figurine, a Sunekosuri plush, a poster, a set of goodies (including keychains and pins), or a Nioh 2 branded hoodie.
It does seem like the contest is limited to Japanese residents, but there’s no harm in trying. The worst thing that will happen is you summon a Yokai to your house and get murdered a bunch of times.
