Recently Activision flew me and a few other lucky content creators to Japan to visit FROM SOFTWARE to play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as well as interview game director, Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Even though I only spent 3 hours with the game, there’s a lot to unpack here. So for the bulk of the video I’m going to try to just stick to the facts for each topic with a light dusting of subjectivity here and there. And then at the end I’ll give you my overall opinion of Sekiro from the time I spent with it. But, I can assure there is a ton of new and useful information here. Alright, let’s jump right into it.

Here’s 11 Things You Need to Know About Sekiro.

We'll cover Story, Setting and Character, The Ninja Class of Shinobi, Combat, Posture and Deathblows, the Shinobi Prosthetic Arm, Various Upgrades, Stealth, Death, and finally the Dragonrot Mechanic.

Wow, japanese people were really short back then. About the size of a chicken apparently. The giant was just a normal sized person.

"Fromsoftware is known for players in their games dying repeatedly but never before has a death mechanic been implemented in such a way that the player begins to experience the effects of ther immortality harm those around him" Demon's Souls: Am I a joke to you?

Honestly, I'm gonna pass on this one. The best part of Dark Souls, to me, is the various builds to tackle the game with and Fashion Souls. This game doesn't have that, so I feel like there is next to no replay value (much like Ninja Gaiden was to me). It looks like a fun game, but I don't feel like there is enough going on to make me play through more than a couple times. Meanwhile I just started a fresh DS3 run to use a weapon I've never used before.

I have a feeling this game will be harder for souls veterans than new players.

So you like to turtling behind a shield? Made Bloodborne to force you mastering evading. So you like to evade? Make Sekiro to force you to parry. I always suck at parry. It will be hard game for me.
