'Nioh' Gets 'Last Chance Trial' Demo This Weekend
Koei Tecmo indicates that "Nioh" is getting one last demo before its official release in February. The action RPG's "Last Chance Trial" demo will arrive this weekend although players can pre-load their copies now. The demo was initially announced for Japanese markets only, but the company also confirmed its availability for the West on Jan. 21-22.
The publisher confirms that the trial version of the game will net players a special item called the "Ogress Headgear." This item can be acquired when players complete the main mission. Other bonus items that gamers might collect are the "Mark of the Conqueror" and "Mark of the Strong," which is gained through the "Twilight" mission's completion. Siliconera notes that these items were included during the Alpha and Beta test demos last year.
Addtionally, the bonus items that players receive from completing the "Last Chance Trial" demo for "Nioh" can be carried over to the game. Players are advised not to delete their save files from the demo in order to take advantage of these bonuses. This demo is the third and final version of the Koei Tecmo's action RPG title, according to Polygon.
Earlier this week the game reportedly turned gold, as reported by Playstation Life Style. The official Playstation Europe Twitter account confirmed its status. Gamers who pre-order the title will receive some in-game items that vary per region. A deluxe edition is also available, which includes the game, five special weapons, the season pass and a PS4 avatar.

A trailer for the "Last Chance Trial" demo has also been uploaded by the publisher. It shows William, "Nioh's" protagonist, fighting against an ogre boss. The next scene shows him in battle with some regular enemies, which are revealed to be high aggressive unlike other games. The ogress encounter is shown briefly and the trailer ends with some demo information. The official launch dates of the title are Feb. 7 for North America, Feb. 8 for Europe and Feb. 9 for Japan.
