Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a new Soulslike developed by FromSoftware

Sekiro is a new IP created by FromSoftware, which will be published by Activision. Set in feudal Japan, it seems to be following the template set by other FromSoft games. At the Xbox E3 press conference, the developer officially revealed that game: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, an action game starring a ninja with a prosthetic arm. A third-person game with RPG elements, Shadows Die Twice is a single-player only game. The game takes place in an alternate Japan during the late 1500s, where players take the role of a "disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death", who must rescue his master and go on a journey of revenge against his "arch nemesis". As "Sekiro", or the "one-armed wolf", players will discover the many ways to strategically approach combat and engage enemies.

Speaking of those two games, the gameplay in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice doesn't look too dissimilar to FromSoftware's signature look. We don't typically see as many characters and VO at once in Souls games, so I'm curious to see how (if) From goes all in on narrative this time around. We'll surely have more to report on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as details trickle out over the course of E3.


Devil May Cry 5 is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in spring 2019.
