Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is definitely not a Dark Souls game
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is not a Souls game.
That’s important because developer FromSoftware spent the last decade making games that are either proper Dark Souls games or precursors, like Demon’s Souls. Even when the developers made the PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne, it was in the Dark Souls mold.
Based on my time behind closed doors playing From’s new game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice breaks that mold.
And it’s not hyperbole to say that it’s all because of that fishing reel-like attachment on your bony left arm.
If the Souls games were director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s fantastical take on medieval fantasy and Bloodborne was his take on gothic, Victorian fantasy, then Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is his take on Japanese...
