The latest cinematic trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has arrived and this one shines a light on the action-adventure game’s story. We’ve had no shortage of gameplay footage so far, but this latest video offers an early look at what the plot holds as it introduces an old master called the Owl finding a new apprentice on the battlefield. As the short preview implies, he had no idea who this apprentice would eventually become as the years go by.
From the studio behind games such as Dark Souls and Bloodborne, FromSoftware, comes the very-different Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Unlike the previous titles listed, this game will focus more on stealth, tools, and utility in what is sure to be a refreshing change of pace for fans of the studio’s work, which is typically known for having more RPG elements and multiplayer features.
Set in Sengoku Japan during the late 1500s, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice follows a shinobi named Sekiro, nicknamed the one-armed wolf, who embarks on a journey of revenge after a samurai attacked and took his lord as prisoner. Armed with a katana and a handy prosthetic, he sets off to rescue his lord and put an end to those responsible for the kidnapping.
