Nioh 2 Open Beta Release Date

Team Ninja has announced Nioh 2 Open Beta for November on PS Store with a full release due for early 2020.

Long after making an official reveal back at E3 2018 event, developer studios Koei Tecmo Games and Team Ninja returned revealing a batch of new screenshots for their upcoming action role-playing title Nioh 2 last month.

Then last week at Tokyo Game Show 2019, a gameplay overview trailer came out with a release window of early 2020. Open Beta program for fans of the samurai adventure game is announced to begin from November 1, 2019.

A playable demo was made available for panel attendees earlier in TGS 2019 and now players from all over the world can experience gameplay of highly-anticipated Nioh sequel for 10 days-long only a month after at PlayStation Store.

Apparently, only players on PlayStation 4 consoles can take part in Open Beta and there is no official confirmation on whether Team Ninja will keep this a PS4-exclusive title or it may see launch on PC and Xbox One platforms.

Despite comparison between Nioh series and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by From Software, developers made sure that it stands out unique among other samurai games, including upcoming Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch.

Nioh 2 doesn't have an official release date revealed yet other than a launch period of early 2020 on PS4 and hopefully that is not January. Original Nioh came out on February 2017 from publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Capcom May Have Teased Devil May Cry 6

During a recent panel at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, Capcom may have secretly teased Devil May Cry 6.

According to recent financial earnings report, Capcom made double profits in first quarter of 2019, major credit for that goes to action-adventure hack and slash game Devil May Cry 5 and survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake.

On a recent behind-closed-doors event at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, official announcement regarding Devil May Cry series was made by DMC5 voice actors that may eventually turn out to be a first reveal for Devil May Cry 6.

Attending a recent panel, voice actor Reuben Langdon who plays Dante asks everyone present to put their phones away before revealing an exclusive footage from Capcom to audience nearing the end of their conversation (45: 12).

It was something related to DMC franchise that is planned to be officially revealed very soon but Langdon was given permission by publisher to unveil an early peak for attendees of their panel before they stopped filming it.

Afterwards, it was posted by Daniel Southworth on his Facebook page, who played role of Vergil in Devil May Cry 5.

Turns out, whatever they showed were cut off before at that point and everyone there may be under a non-disclosure agreement, which will not allow them to leak any major secret without facing some legal consequences from Capcom.

Considering DMC5 marks a long-awaited return to a beloved action series that sold over 2 million copies within first two weeks and has been out for six months already, Capcom teasing a potential sequel right now makes all kind of sense.

RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

Also given that the game will not be receiving any more DLCs following release of its last update Bloody Palace, possibilities for a Devil May Cry 6 announcement or something new related to DMC series would not seem out of place.

Capcom would most likely to keep current momentum the franchise have picked up this year by returning after a while and we might expect to get some exciting news regarding a follow-up sequel at Gamescom 2019 next week.
