This brand new project appears to share the same frenzied yet skillful gameplay that we’ve come to know and love/hate from FromSoftware. Sekiro is the story of a ninja as he traverses 15th-century feudal Japan. Our main character appears to have a prosthetic arm that doubles as a super useful grappling hook. Tenchu, another series made by FromSoftware, also focuses on ninjas, but Sekiro – Shadows Die Twice is a brand new story and project.
Being published by Activision, Sekiro was teased last year, and the popular speculation was that it was a sequel to the Victorian Bloodborne. However, the bloody, gory close-up, which made up a majority of the teaser trailer, was actually our main character’s prosthetic arm. The teaser trailer ended with the phrase, “Shadows Die Twice.”
No release date has been announced.
