Nioh 2 PC launch has been a little problematic for sure, and Team Ninja is aware of that. So, the developer released a small yet important update for the game. Update 1.25.1 improves performance, fixes crash issues, and resolves some annoying bugs.

Issues where the game may crash in certain environments and when displaying equipment's descriptions of special effects have been resolved. But if crashes persist, the team showed how to work around them in the patch notes below.

They also improved the performance of the game and the game screen will not be cut off anymore. As a bonus, you can now change the confirmation button in Controls settings.


  • The confirmation button can now be changed in Controls.

  • Fixed an issue where the lock-on target would switch when the mouse was moved, even if the Move Camera/Switch Lock-On Target setting was changed to an option other than Move Mouse in Keyboard & Mouse Settings.

  • Fixed an issue where the mouse sensitivity could become so high that it became impossible to change the settings

  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented the selection of certain resolutions and caused the game screen to be cut off due to the Windows settings

  • Fixed an issue that made the game prone to crashing in certain environments

  • If the game repeatedly crashes in a specific place, please try the following:

    • Right-click on “Nioh 2 Complete Edition” in the Steam client ⇒ “Properties” ⇒ “Local File” ⇒ “Verify Integrity of Game Files.”

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash when displaying the descriptions of equipment special effects.

  • Alleviated the issue where the frame rate tended to drop when Effect Quality was set to High in Graphics Settings.

    • We are continuing to investigate and address this issue

  • Reduced the tendency for the game to run slowly when certain attacks hit the walls

  • Fixed an issue that caused black bars to appear on the left and right sides of the screen during multiplayer on ultra-wide monitors.
