The game will launch on February 5, 2021 for next-gen console PS5. This will include all titles of the Nioh franchise complete with all previous and upcoming downloadable contents.

Here’s some background context on what the third DLC is all about:
A flash of light from Sohayamaru whisks the protagonist back to the past as a Visitor for the third and final time. They are brought back to the place their mother spoke of when they were very young, the land of the fabled youth that defeated an oni. Otakemaru’s past, the secret of Sohayamaru, and the truth behind the first samurai. All of these mysteries will be revealed, and the protagonist’s long journey will finally come to a climactic end.
