The Nioh saga was born from the current of titles of the so-called souls-like genre, characterized by a quite demanding difficulty and a development based on trial/error, but also with its own identity, especially thanks to its setting, based on Japan more feudal. Today, Team Ninja, responsible for the license, bring good news regarding a new sales milestone.
The study has confirmed on social networks that adding the two games in the saga and the different versions they have had to date, they have just exceeded 5 million games sold. To achieve this data has helped the publication of both adventures, both on PS4 and PC. The combined data is the result of the first Nioh selling three million copies, while its sequel, published in February 2020, has reached 2 million.

In addition, a few months ago The Nioh Collection was also launched on PlayStation 5, including the two games in the series with technical improvements, such as a better framerate and resolution, thus bringing the license closer to the new generation. The cumulative sales are the result of the good results that the game has given Team Ninja, creating an active community that tries to overcome records and increase possibilities with the new content that has been published.
Nioh takes a break
Despite Nioh’s successes and good figures, Team Ninja already said a few months ago that the saga was going to take a break since they consider that the brand needs “a period of rest”. Then they also confirmed that they have started a large-scale development, but they have not given any clues about it either.
Although the rumors of the new Team Ninja project point to a new Ninja Gaiden, but the studio has also denied it on several occasions.
