Hints & Secrets
In contrast to the first game, Nioh Game, you don't have a pre-made protagonist, you can create it yourself . You have plenty of options to adapt your own character. You can choose your gender, the size, the skin color, you can give your figure scars or apply make-up or tattoos and change everything in shape, color and size.
As you make your adjustments, you hear your parents talking about you and your future, apparently before you are born. Both represent different philosophies of how your life should go in their eyes. In the end you can even adjust your voice, although it is only able to reproduce sounds of exertion, since the protagonist himself is silent.
Once you have created your character, you will find yourself on a jetty by the water. There is a grotto in front of you to enter. On the way you will see various yellow lights that you can interact with by holding down the circle. These explain individual control mechanisms to you. The last light in front of you on the footbridge lets you look at your own reflection and allows you to adjust the look of your character again.
If you now enter the grotto, you will find 9 different weapon types inside, of which you can create two. If you now go to the center of the grotto and then press the circle, the combat tutorial starts. You learn to attack, block and evade. You will also learn how to use your demon abilities and how to control your Ki.
Once you have completed the respective tutorials, you can repeat individual sections again to deepen them further, or you will enter the world and thus also the first level. Dress warm!
The village of the cursed flowers
A desperate man bangs on your door. Something terrible was going on outside and he asked for your help. You stay calm and wait until you finally decide to go out.
From now on you can control your character outside. You follow the path that at one point has a fork straight ahead and to the left. There is a gate straight ahead, which is however locked from the other side . Through the gaps in the gate itself you can see that something is moving on the other side.
On the right side you can see a shrine where you can pray and save. If you do so, you can redeem your Amrita, similar to the souls at Dark Souls , to get new skill and level points. The downside of this, however, is that all normal NPCs will live again afterwards and you may have to fight through them again.
But this can also be an advantage in that you theoretically have so much "material" that you can use for practicing and leveling. On the other hand, if you die, you will get back into the game at which you prayed at the last shrine.
The first fight
To get ahead, you have to take the previous turn to the left . To do this, you go down a slope. There is a little yokai sitting down there, a gaki attacking you. Even if he is not particularly powerful, he has already taken care of you after three hits, so be careful.
This type of yokai attack you with punches and bites. They also throw stones at you and choke a purple liquid that paralyzes you should you touch them. Defeat the Gaki by letting it come and attack. Evade, so that you get into his back - attack now. If he runs out of ki, he falls to the ground and is exhausted. In this case you can stab him with a triangle and cause a lot of damage.
If you surprise a gaki, you can attack it first with the high posture (R1 + triangle), but you should switch to the middle posture (R1 + square) or the low posture (R1 + X) so that you block better, respectively can dodge while not consuming as much Ki.
In general, you should keep an eye on your own ki and that of your opponent. If you have little ki, you should not attack so that you can still avoid or block in case of doubt. If the opponent has little ki, then it is said that he can not attack either. Then strike! You can also regenerate part of your kis by pressing R1 at the right moment after a hit. In the same way you also clean dark fields. If you defeat him, you will receive Amrita and gold. Also check if he has dropped Loot and pick it up with a circle if necessary.
Keep an eye out for yellow lights that you can interact with. If you do that, you will receive Amrita and sometimes Loot. You also sometimes hear the last words of the dead from whom you found the light. On the one hand, these last words contribute to the dark atmosphere, on the other hand, you can guess what must have happened and you may also find out whether there is a great danger lurking after the next corner. You should always do that, it can save you from nasty surprises.
All Hot Spring locations
Search the indicated locations to find all 27 Hot Springs and get the "Spa Lover" trophy. None of them are missable. You can still get all Hot Springs after the story through level select. After you sit in the hot spring bath, the progress is immediately saved and you can quit the mission without reaching the next checkpoint. To view your totals, go to "Titles" - "Gameplay Records" - "Others" - "Hot Springs Discovered". Each one counts for 3.7% (so just divide your total percentage by 3.7 to get how many you have). On the world map, you can also press X on a mission and then R1 to view how many collectibles (including Hot Springs) you found there. Note: The Hot Springs from main missions also appear again in side missions, but it is not necessary to get them again (when a side mission takes place in the same area as the main mission the hot spring will be found in the same place). You only need to find each unique Hot Springs once. The video below shows them in the order of first appearance.

Every five Kodama give you one extra Elixir for the respective region on respawn, and each region has 25 Kodama -- so you can get up to five extra Elixirs for each respawn. Thus, instead of three Elixirs for healing, you can start with eight Elixirs when you respawn. This makes the game easier -- so they are worth getting. The Kodama collectibles are saved instantly when you interact with them. Thus, you can quit the mission immediately since there is no need to reach the next shrine, as the progress will still be saved. On the mission selection screen, it displays how many Kodama you found in the mission and how many are remaining.

You could destroy them to get rid of the poison in the area, which also drains the poison pools in the boss area. With the poison pools gone from the boss battle, it makes the fight easier. However, to get the "Devout Believer" trophy, you must do it the hard way. This can be pretty challenging on the first playthrough of the mission. It is recommended to ignore this trophy until you have completed the game and reached Level 100+. Then, replay the mission and proceed straight for the boss without destroying the Snake Statues. Since you are greatly over-leveled, you will be able to quickly defeat the boss despite the poison. If you decide to try it during the first playthrough, make sure to buy the "Medicine: Anti-toxin Pill II" Ninja skill and equip as many of them as you can carry. This cures the poison effect. Also, equip the "Rejuvenation Talisman" Magic skill to heal yourself over time. As long as you stay out of the three poison pools in the boss fight, it will not be too bad. Attack the boss when it slithers past you and when it summons its snake arms through the ground. Try to destroy both its snake arms before it goes into Yokai Realm mode.

You should get one Dung Ball every 5 Tessos on average. You also find plenty of Dungballs and Noble Dungballs from corpses (yellow item pick-ups) in this mission and throughout the rest of the game. When you are done with the story, return to this mission. If you still do not have 30 Dungballs by that point, keep killing Tesso until you have 30 Dungballs.
Easy "Feather Buster" Trophy Guide
During Mission 7: A Way Out (third region), there will be two areas with searchlights. Simply let the searchlights detect you, then destroy the big red orb that spawns. Destroying the red orb makes the searchlights go away. You will get the "Feather Buster" trophy immediately after destroying the second one.

This takes place after defeating the Saika Magoichi boss in the same mission. As soon as the fight against Gyuki begins, stand at the dam wall where you dropped down to the boss fight. Just stand there holding L1 to block and wait for Gyuki to attack you. He will hit the damn and you will get the "Schemer" trophy.
Easy "Sudama Swapper" Trophy Guide

Inside the second wooden house is a ladder leading underground. Climb down to find the Sudama. To exchange gifts, simply drop an item from your inventory that you do not need, like any low quality weapon. He will drop you a bunch of items in exchange and you will get the "Sudama Swapper" trophy.
