Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja announced that Nioh 2’s newest DLC, Darkness in the Capital, will launch for PlayStation 4 on October 15, 2020. The DLC sees players attempting to uncover the history of the Sohayamaru by venturing to Kyoto City. After discovering a worn-out box, they are transported to the middle of the Heian period (with ran from 794 CE to 1185 CE), where the capital is being terrorised by yokai.
