If you’ve been playing Nioh 2 for any amount of time, you’ll likely be aware that the game features both English and Japenese dubs. While this might be fun for a while, at some point you might decide to disable the Nioh 2 Japanese voice, so here’s how to change languages.
How to Disable the Nioh 2 Japanese Voice
Located in Japan, Nioh 2 developer, Team Ninja, has been hard at work putting the final touches on its game. To make things more exciting, developers decided to use both English and Japanese voices in Nioh 2, as there is a large fanbase for the series in the States. However, there might be times in the game when you just want to stick to a single translation.
To enable or disable the Nioh 2 Japanese voice and change languages, you’ll need to update the settings in the main menu of the game. Unfortunately, there is no way to change languages within the game’s pause menu, meaning you’ll need to save and closeout to the main menu.
Additionally, this means that if you wanted to hear a cutscene or a bit of dialogue in an English or Japanese dub, and you’ve already played through that area, you won’t be able to go back and change it without reloading a prior save. However, if you plan ahead, you can avoid this problem by simply picking a language before you load into the game.
If you decided to disable the Nioh 2 Japanese voice, you can always go back into the main menu and enable it later on. Unlike some games, you won’t be stuck with your first choice during your entire playthrough.
Additionally, if you listen closely, you might hear a British accent attempted a time or two, which lots of players have found quite humorous. Now that you know how to change languages in Nioh 2, pick your preferred vernacular and have fun!
