The Nioh 2 PS5 remaster loads fast as hell | Destructoid

One of my first takeaways with the Demon’s Souls PS5 remake was how much less prickly the experience can be when load times are quick. That sentiment will also go for the PS5 remasters of Nioh and Nioh 2. When these games launch for PlayStation 5 on February 5, 2021, they’ll be fast as hell.
Team Ninja shared a pair of gameplay clips that show how Nioh 2 handles load times on PS5.

This series is built on a foundation of grinding for gear, perfecting routes, and doing it all again in New Game+ runs, so every little bit not spent waiting around will add up in a meaningful way.
I don’t think I have it in me to revisit the first Nioh ever again (sorry, William!), but being able to upgrade Nioh 2 for free and bring over my PS4 save data? Yeah, I’m down. Give me those high frame rates.
