While Koei Tecmo’s upcoming action RPG, Nioh, has already gone gold, there’s still one final beta. This beta will run from January 21st-22nd and will be accessible even if you don’t have a PSN Plus account. During the beta, gamers will be able to utilize online multiplayer and unlock rewards if they missed the first two. However, there’s a catch and that being that this beta is exclusive to Japan.
Update: Nope, looks like you don’t need to have a Japanese account! The North America PS Blog just announced that the beta/trial is coming here as well! Read more about it here.
Yep, unless you live in Japan or have a Japanese PSN account (Hint!), you won’t be able to access the beta. So, make sure you set up a Japanese PSN account, ok? As to why are they holding a beta after the game went gold? Well, this is just me but I’m assuming just to make sure there aren’t any bugs they may have missed.
