Rise of the Ronin is not a purely Soulslike game

Will Rise of the Ronin be a Soulslike?

Rise of the Ronin is not a pure Souls type game. Indeed, the game has been described as accessible and offers three difficulty levels : Dawn, Setting Sun and Dusk. In the game, Dawn will be the easiest difficulty, followed by the other two.

So, if you are a player new to Team Ninja games, you can choose the Dawn difficulty level to experience the story at your own pace. You will have access to additional healing as well as reduced Ki loss during combat. Additionally, you can always change the difficulty level at any time in the game.

This means that Rise of the Ronin will be easier compared to games like Nioh. However, given that this is a Team Ninja game, you can expect some level of challenge even when playing on Dawn difficulty.
