Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: The Samurai Man Cometh

Samurai Dark Souls is finally here. And not much else.

I say “finally” because Nioh, a game that felt like a samurai take on Souls, and in fact turned out to be basically exactly that, actually began its journey over a decade ago back in 2004. The game is based on an abandoned script by famed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa. The game was originally slated for PS3, because, you know, it was 2005 and all, but had to eventually be pushed back


Nioh will kill you a lot. Being in development hell for over ten years will do that kind of thing to a game. Thankfully, it’s the dead of winter so there’s plenty of time for that sort of thing.
