Nioh 2 may have received critical reception from fans, however, the game still suffers from technical issues lying around. The developer is aware of that and is constantly trying to fix them with updates and patches. Update 1.27 was released yesterday for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 and it brought several bug fixes and improvements. But don’t confuse this update with the other Patch 1.27 that was released on PC.

Although the PS4 version got an update, it didn’t receive many changes. The only big change is letting players use “Righteous Jasper” as intended. The other changes are simply minor bug fixes. In the PS5 version, several changes have been highlighted by the developer. The input latency bug that occurred after rapid firing a ranged weapon is now fixed. When playing the game in 120 FPS mode, some actions will not be slowed down anymore. Burst Counters now also work as intended in the said mode.

You can read the complete patch notes below for more information.
