Despite it being a PC port, Nioh: Complete Edition recently launched on the Steam with absolutely no mouse support. While most gamers prefer to play these games with a controller, the lack of mouse support on a platform that primarily uses it is a glaring issue that caused some backlash. The game has keyboard support, but it's hardly playable through that.

Fortunately, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja are remedying this in a patch arriving on November 30th. Announced via Twitter, the patch will also include some bug fixes and customizable key bindings.

Since the date is in Japanese Standard Time, the patch will likely arrive on the 29th in the Western world. There are still more issues for patches to touch on, but this is a good first start. This information is also available via Nioh's Steam page.

 

Nioh: Complete Edition released for PC on November 7th. The port comes with all post-release DLC from the PlayStation 4 edition: Dragon of the North, Defiant Honour, and Bloodshed's End. It also comes with an exclusive armor piece and some gameplay tweaks based on the console versions feedback. The PS4 edition released to critical acclaim, with praise for the games extensive combat system and creative enemy design.

 

Quick Take

I've spent just under eighty hours with the port so far. While it's great to see Team Ninja listening to fans and including mouse support, there are optimization issues I'd rather them touch on first. Regardless, the game is playable in its current state and still worth a purchase.

Will this change of heart convince you to pick up the PC port? Let us know in the comments below!
