Dark Souls Developer Reveals Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
It is essentially Dark Souls set in feudal Japan.
FromSoftware, the studio behind Dark Souls and Bloodborne, have unveiled their next title during Microsoft's E3 press conference. Called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the game appears to be set in 1500's ancient Japan during the Sengoku period. Also known as the Age of the Warring States, the Sengoku period was characterized by constant brutality, military conflict, and ultimately the collapse of the Feudal system for a time. The main character is a ninja with what appears to be a prosthetic arm, who is set out on a path of revenge and possibly cursed to be unable to die.
While not much can be confirmed regarding gameplay from the reveal trailer, it appears as if Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be in line with FromSoftware's previous "Soulsbourne" titles featuring extensive sword play, gigantic bosses, and a challenging difficulty. Unlike previous games, however, it is possible that we will see more stealth and acrobatic moves come into play, including scaling walls. This title is set to release on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2019. Hopefully we will see additional game footage and information in the coming days.
