Nioh follows the story William in pursuit of Edward Kelley who has captured and stole his Guardian Spirit Saoirse.


William's journey is divided into chapters, each chapter takes place in a different region. For the list of regions and more detailed information about them, see the regions page.


Each region has a main story, made up from main missions and optional sub missions. Some missions are available as a twilight variant that are a more difficult variant of the main missions. Two of these missions are available each day and they are on a rotation.


William encounters characters throughout his journey, some becoming his ally, some becoming powerful Bosses to challenge. Most have their own Guardian Spirits that they share with William after completing a certain mission.

Some characters' skin can be purchased in the Hidden Teahouse in return of Glory, allowing William to take their apperance.
