Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Shows New Boss Battles and Story Bits in an Epic Launch Trailer
The launch of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is less than two weeks away, and Activision and developer From Software have dropped an epic launch trailer to get fans’ blood pumping. I almost want to put a SPOILER tag on this trailer – it doesn’t give away any major plot points, but it does show off what has to be a fairly good chunk of the game’s bosses. So, proceed with caution if you want to go in completely fresh.
The trailer provides a peek at some early-game cinematics, including Sekiro’s first death (of many). As mentioned, we also see tons of bosses and other freaky baddies, including a huge rampaging bull, a strange robed figure wielding a massive naginata, and some sort of…giant mutant gorilla/sloth hybrid? As with most From Software games, a lot of the creatures you’ll face kind of defy description. Check them out for yourself, below.
Need more Sekiro goodness? You can check out some footage fresh from the PlayStation Japan Countdown event, right here. Haven’t been keeping up with the game? Here’s a quick rundown of its backstory:
In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf”, a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you on a perilous quest to regain your honor, not even death itself.
Explore late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a brutal period of constant life and death conflict, as you come face to face with larger than life foes in a dark and twisted world. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head to head combat in a bloody confrontation.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice leaps onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 22.
