Team Ninja’s Nioh, the Eastern-themed action game often compared to FromSoftware’s Dark Souls series, will be published by Sony in North America and Europe, a PlayStation Blog post has revealed. Koei Tecmo will continue to publish the title in Japan and other territories.
As well as the above, the post reveals a raft of visual and graphical options that will be included in all versions of the PlayStation 4 exclusive, available through the choice of three different modes depending on what players prioritize most in their games.
Movie and Action modes offer different types of performance, including “beautiful high resolution graphics with stable 30fps for the former and the emphasis on a “stable 60fps frame rate” for the latter. See below for all the options.
PlayStation 4 Settings
- “Movie Mode” focuses on resolution over frame rate, offering “beautiful high resolution graphics with stable 30fps.”
- “Action Mode” emphasizes a stable 60 fps frame rate.
- “Movie Mode (Variable frame rate)” offers high-resolution graphics with a variable frame rate that may go over 30 fps.
What’s more, Nioh will be one of over 40 games that will take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s superior hardware on release, including HD and 4K display options.
PS4 Pro Settings
- HD display “Movie Mode” – Stable 1920×1080 resolution with high-quality anti-aliasing at 30 fps

Team Ninja has held two separate beta tests for Nioh this year, with both giving players a taste of what’s to come on February 9, 2017, when the full game launches.
