  1. Nioh has a more cohesive story than 2 but Nioh 2 is better in every other way.
    Nioh 2 doesn’t really tie into the story from Nioh anyway.

  2. Play through Nioh 2 until point where the timeline catches up to Nioh 1, then play through the entirety of Nioh 1, then return to Nioh 2

  3. Is there a way to play just the DLCs of 1? I lost my NG+ save and don’t want to go through the whole game especially after beating 2 recently.

  4. Just start with 2, Op. I regret investing time into 1 because it made me burn out on 2 faster. Nioh 2 is practically nioh 1.5, and the story is shit anyway.

      Nioh 1 is good, but its a gambit, many people enjoyed nioh 2 but not 1

      If you are chill you will enjoy both games, there is some fan service in nioh 2 to nioh 1 too that you will enjoy if you play 1 first, both games take a lot of hours to finish, if you ever feel that nioh 1 is repetitive through the playthrough just jump into nioh 2 or else you will burn out

      I played both games back to back and never got burnt out so thats that

  5. Start at the beginning. Why would you start somewhere else? It’s a joy to play through a game series to see how it evolved or devolved.
