Regarding the new chapter, the official PlayStation Blog mentions the following:
A great battle has taken place at Yashima in the late Heian period. As a visitor in Yashima, our protagonist finds a shrine possessing a mysterious whistle called the Sohayamaru. Upon inspection, the whistle shines radiantly as the shadow of Yokai can be seen lurking in the background. It is revealed that whenever wars take place, heroes wielding the Sohayamaru will head into battle in order to restore peace back into this land.
There will be more details given on “The Tengu’s Disciple”, the first DLC pack, in the coming weeks. Other DLCs of this type are also in the pipeline. All in all, the makers promise “a total of 3 sizable & badass DLC batches.”
