From Software’s latest game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, is only two weeks old. But that hasn’t stopped players like horheristo on YouTube from defeating every boss without getting hit.

In a recent video uploaded on their channel, horheristo showed off speed running strategies for each of the main bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. horheristo starts with the first Genichiro Ashina fight — which From intends players to lose — and plays through the rest of the game. Horheristo even defeats the bosses on all alternate story routes.
Even more impressive, the playthrough is on New Game Plus 2, making each boss harder (though it does allow players to start with upgraded weapons and skills). In the video notes, horheristo explains why New Game Plus 2 was their chosen difficulty.
“[New Game Plus 2] was chosen for two reasons: showing the full potential of character growth, and having beefier bosses that won’t fall down as fast as [New Game],” horheristo said.
Even with upgraded tools, horheristo’s run is impressive, clocking in at under 45 minutes.
