Ahead of tomorrow’s ‘Dragon of the North’ add-on to Team Ninja’s Nioh, the DLC has received a trailer to spark more interest in the developer’s latest action-RPG.

The trailer, which can be seen below, shows William—the player-character and the game’s protagonist—utilizing an Odachi, also known as a Nodachi, as well as various other pieces of new equipment. Also featured are new characters who appear in the post-game story that accompanies the game’s DLC, including Masamune Date. A new boss and enemies are also revealed, showcasing some of William’s new abilities in glimpses of his battle with them.

Nioh’s ‘Dragon of the North’ DLC will release tomorrow, May 2, 2017.

Nioh is an action-RPG developed by Team Ninja and published by Koei Tecmo in Japan. Sony Interactive Entertainment took care of worldwide distribution. The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and was released in February 2017. Nioh’s story centers around William, a European samurai, and his journey through Japan fighting both human and supernatural enemies. Combat is based on hack-and-slash mechanics and includes magical elements.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
