Nioh

Nioh

John shares some thoughts on Team Ninja's Nioh in advance of a full episode and podcast this September. Samurai have been popular in and out of Japan for quite some time, but Team Ninja do a lot of interesting things with their subject here.
John welcomes Michael Dylan Foster of University of California, Davis to discuss Japanese folklore in Team Ninja's Nioh. We talk about yokai in a Japanese context and how the game is the latest in a long line of Japanese reinterpretations of long-standing ideas. 1:24 What are Yokai?
