Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja announced that the long-awaited sequel Nioh 2 will be receiving a closed alpha period that is set to go live only a few days from now.

As detailed via a new trailer for the game on the official PlayStation Europe YouTube channel, Nioh 2 will be having a closed alpha phase that will happen on PS4 starting this Friday, May 24. This alpha will then last for a little over a week until June 2.

The trailer also showed off the first lengthy gameplay footage from Nioh 2 and it does not disappoint. Combat still seems similar to the previous installment but the style seems to have been cranked up to 11.

If you want to check out that gameplay for yourself, you can find it in the video below. Nioh 2 is set to come to PS4 at an undetermined date.
