The latest game outing from Team Ninja of Dead or Alive is the “dark warring-states action RPG” Nioh, and PlayStation are streaming a video announcing that the KOEI Tecmo release will be getting an alpha demo on PS4.

The demo will be available to download on the PlayStation Network Store between April 26th and May 5th, and all who play it and clear a stage will get ‘The Mark of the Conqueror’ DLC once the game launches. KOEI Tecmo confirmed in December that it would receive a western release, after first being announced in September with the teaser trailer below, and on Monday the PlayStation Blog made the announcement that we can expect the game’s PS4 exclusive western edition this year.

Besides the game, a manga adaptation is due to launch in the June issue of Bessatsu Shonen Magazine. The magazine will be published on May 9th, and the Nioh manga will feature work (Famitsu preview below) by debuting artist Yosuke Katayama.
