Does importing a Nioh or Nioh 2 PS4 save unlock trophies on PS5?

How to transfer PS4 saves to Nioh Remastered and Nioh 2 Remastered on PS5

Yes, once players import their Nioh or Nioh 2 save into Nioh Remastered or Nioh 2 Remastered, the game will automatically unlock previously earned PS4 trophies in the PS5 version. However, not every single one will unlock again and those must be done manually again in the remaster. Every earned trophy will pop after transferring except the ones that call for players to do certain goals within specific missions. For example, players won’t have to reach level 100 again to unlock “Full-fledged samurai” but they will have to defeat the optional Gozuki boss in the first mission to get the “Bold Wrangler” trophy.

This process should also work in reverse, meaning players can double up by playing the PS5 version, unlocking PS5 trophies, and then transferring that PS5 save to PS4 to get those trophies again on PS4.
