Publisher KOEI Tecmo America has released a new announcement trailer for the upcoming dark, samurai-inspired action RPG, Nioh. The game was showcased at the recent PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, CA, and is currently in development under the direction of Kou Shibusawa, Hisashi Koinuma, and Team NINJA and will be released in the west exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

In Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Known as Yokai, these demons inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players will also face off with other samurai in supernatural sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai’s skills, patience, and strategy.

For a look at the game in all of its brutal glory, check out the Nioh announcement trailer below:
