After pouring easily hundreds of hours into Nioh 2 and its three DLC packs on PS4, it’s admittedly been pretty jarring to start a fresh save on PC – even if I’m only here for preview purposes right now.

I had forgotten just how lethal and unforgiving the early hours of Nioh 2 can be when you aren’t leveled up enough to feel all that versatile.
