Fans of From Software’s grueling worlds of tactical button prompts, perfect timing with animation triggers, and the oh so sweet taste of hard-wrought victory are in for another treat from the studio. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice doesn’t surprise anyone by now; its existence has been made very well known, and is very well known, despite a pretty silent marketing campaign for the game. But From Software doesn’t have marketing needs: their games, as their audience, are of the strong, silent type.
The new launch trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is action-packed, showcasing some of the game’s verticality and head-to-head combat. If you’re into the whole feudal Japan theme, and a bit into the masochistic side of the equation, you have to do yourself a favor and take a look at this game. Knowing From Software, it will be an evocative world building experience like few exist in the gaming world.
