Koei Tecmo announced that Nioh: Complete Edition is coming to PC in a press release. The acclaimed (soon to be former) PlayStation 4 exclusive will release on Steam with all of its DLC content on November 7th.
This is a highly demanded port, with PC gamers being a big fan of the Dark Souls series and games like it. Game director Fumihiko Yasuda states:
“Team NINJA is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of "Nioh”. I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.”The PC version of Nioh will release with an 'Action Mode,' ensuring a stable 60 frames per second, and 'Cinematic Mode' which allows for 4K enhancements and a presumably lower frame rate.
An exclusive item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet, will come with the port:
"The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of "kawari-kabuto"—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one's worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam... Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to "Valve Kabuto," but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear..."
Contrasting the PS4 version, Nioh: Complete Edition offers all weapon and magic types from the start of the game.
