Nioh has changed Team Ninja. Sex and death are its air and water, the fundamental needs of life that keep the studio behind Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive running. Ryu Hayabusa’s perfectly toned *** is shoved inside perfectly sculpted body armor as he flips around wielding a sword with all the subtlety of a pick up artist practicing techniques in Neil Strauss’ The Game. Meanwhile Team Ninja literally let you jostle Ayane’s breasts in Ninja Gaiden 2. All the while both Ayane and Ryu dismember monsters with orgiastic aplomb.
