Published by Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action RPG with the quick and precise combat you’d expect FromSoftware to produce. However, this tale seems to focus on a far deeper narrative across an archaic Japanese setting. Either way, it’s shaping up nicely.
What is Shadows Die Twice?
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action RPG starring a mysterious ninja with a prosthetic arm, a limb which will have mechanical importance in gameplay. For example, it can used as a grappling hook or swung around to stun and distract incoming enemies. Combat is brutal, bloody and wonderfully satisfying, judging by the debut trailer.
Shadows Die Twice is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the same mastermind behind classics such as Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Fans worried that the beloved formula is being abandoned can rest easy knowing this. It’s also published by Activision, the company behind blockbusters like Destiny and Call of Duty.
“Collaborating with Activision on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been a very exciting experience for us,” Miyazaki said. “With Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice many FromSoftware team members, including myself, are thrilled to be exploring themes of Sengoku Japan and ninja for the first time. We can’t wait for everyone to discover what’s in store for the game.”
Shadows Die Twice release date – When’s it out?
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is due to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019. A specific release date remains unconfirmed. Could it join the incredibly busy period of Q1 2019?
