We still have just over a week to go before the arrival of FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early for us to see the game’s official launch trailer, which arrived earlier today. The new footage shows a healthy mix of cinematics and combat, including some of the title’s more acrobatic moments, in which our protagonist takes it to the rooftops to battle his enemies.

A handful of boss encounters are also on display, some of which we have seen in earlier previews, such as the Great Serpent, Chained Ogre, and Lady Butterfly, among others that are still shrouded in mystery. In any case, the full picture will soon be revealed when the game arrives later this month on March 22nd. Give the new trailer a watch above and let us know what you think in the comments below.

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.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will arrive on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 22nd, 2018.
