I have Nioh on my OG and went back to it after this, playing the DLC ehich I've not touched yet and I swesr the only difference is the weapons and no character creation. I'm all for keeping games the same but this is way too far, even the little jingle is the same.
Certain weapons now have a bar that makes the weapon power up/transform once the gauge is full.
The "Sentience" gauge.
You can now also equip Cores to your Guardian Spirits that seem to provide stats, but more importantly lets you use Enemy Skills.
And then there's transforming into a monster, which is much cooler than the power up state from the first game.
You can also summon an AI companion from graves to help you, rather than just fighting them for loot.

And those are things I found while playing the previous Beta. Haven't tried this one yet.
