Nioh 2 – Update 1.24 Adds Cross-Save Management, Balance Changes

The Nioh Collection

To prepare for its release this week on PS5 and PC, Team Ninja’s Nioh 2 has received a new update. Cross-save management for PS4 to PS5 players has been added, allowing PS4 save data to be uploaded and then downloaded to the PS5 version. If you want to transfer from PS5 to the PS4 version, this will also be possible but in both cases, the same PlayStation Network account is needed.

Cross-save transfer also applies to Trophies – any that have been earned on PS4 will be automatically unlocked on PS5. As for balance changes, Burst Attacks for bosses like Nue, Shuten Doji and Otakemaru are now easier to Burst Counter. Bug fixes like special effects, Guardian Spirit actions and Onmyo Magic not activating when the Purified or Sanctity Talisman appeared have also been fixed.

Check out the full patch notes below for more details. Available now for PS4, Nioh 2 will release as Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition on PS5 and Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition for PC and PS4 on February 5th. It will also be included with The Nioh Collection which launches on the same day. For things you should know before buying it, head here.
