The next game from the Dark Souls creator is all about samurai

From the director of Dark Souls and Bloodborne comes Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Russ Frushtick is the director of special projects, and he has been covering the world of video games and technology for over 15 years. He co-founded Polygon in 2012.

FromSoftware’s next Souls-style game is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, directed by the creator of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Souls games tend to be pretty slow, plodding and spooky. Shadows Die Twice is very much not.

We got our first glimpse at the game during Microsoft’s press conference and it is fast. Now granted, we’re not saying this is part of the Souls franchise. But From Software has made a niche for itself with these ultra-hard open-world RPGs. If Bloodborne was Victorian England with a Dark Souls twist, this Japan in the 1500s.

We took a deep dive into the first full trailer for the game, pulling out as many details as we could. If you’re curious, check out the video above!
