Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Gameplay and Boss Battle

Take a look at the extended gameplay and boss battle of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from Tokyo Game Show 2018.

From the very moment upcoming action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is revealed on the E3 2018 press conference, both developer From Software and publisher Activision knew that they got everyone hooked.

Through previous video footage, we had brief glances at in-game moments from the game where the shinobi warrior displayed his feats and fighting abilities against enemy, we never really had some continued gameplay that would at least lead to something.

Keeping that in mind, creators of the game have offered a first look at extended gameplay that leads the protagonist to Corrupted Monk and engaged in a boss-battle, straight out of TGS 2018.

Courtesy of PlayStation Underground, the video focuses on a chapter from a journey for vengeance that the one-armed wolf has taken. It begins on a hilly area and Sekiro lands his first kill by stabbing an enemy on his throat that leads to a blood squirting.

He then jumps up from one location to another using his grappling hook before delivering a kill-shot to another enemy. Then came a mid-boss named Samurai General, who is strong, skilled and very patient to drop his blow in time.

The game actually rewards the player for being aggressive in a fight but you have to be tricky about dodging into enemy attacks to hit them rather than running away from them and perfecting that feat may take time for some.

After finishing a few more weak enemies he takes a stealthy road to another angry adversary who is waiting to be unhinged and refills his healing bar by checking to a Sculpture's Idol. This crazy brute goes down with more stabbing and flame attacks as he is weak to fire.

Next up on his list is to reach to a castle on the other side of the rock but due to the bridge being broken, he had to take sideways. A monstrous white snake comes out making mountains rumble and hiding into a nearby cave was the best option at the moment.

Sliding through a trapdoor, the shinobi reaches to another checkpoint before confronting the Corrupted Monk boss. She is a tough cookie and this is where the death and resurrection mechanics come to play, which you can see for yourself.

Scheduled to release on March 22, 2019, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will come out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-order for the game is already open now for both standard and collector's edition.

Although the game isn't as hard as hell like the Dark Souls series or turn out extremely punishing like Bloodborne but is surely doesn't shy away from some violent bloodbath either. In fact, it meshes so well with the gameplay mechanics that none of that will feel unnatural.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice TGS Trailer

New Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice trailer showcases brutal aerial combat and gameplay before Tokyo Game Show 2018.

First developer From Software made people believe that they are working on a new Dark Souls project, then before they unveiled their upcoming action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at E3 2018 press conference, some even predicted of a sequel for Bloodborne.

Tokyo Game Show is still not here yet but ahead of more than a week; a new trailer for the game is dropped today, which is mostly focused on gameplay while an ongoing narration is going on in the background.

The clip opens up with a village engulfed in flame while it is raining at night and nearby, we see the bloodied, fallen body of the hero and then we are quickly taken to the action-packed segment for more gore moments.

Combat system of the game remains the main focal point of the full video and it only reflects on how quick and deadly the shinobi protagonist actually is. How he cunningly employs stealth when needed and shots his grappling hook for movement is a true spectacle.

He doesn't hesitate to mercilessly cut through his enemies like dogs and each of his blows draw rush of blood you have seen before in Kill Bill movie. It also appears that the sword he wields has some magic within it as some of his enemies are seen turning into red cloudy dust upon being hit by it.

Then again, his samurai opponents from the Ashina clan are quite formidable if you look at their appearance or powers at their disposal and have some intimidating boss characters as well.

Although it was near impossible to understand any meaning to those background recitations in Japanese without any subtitles, the shinobi made his intentions quite obvious with his deeds. Currently, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is scheduled to launch on 22 March, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Since we already got trailer ahead of TGS 2018, chances are we will witness more of the ninja warrior in impressive gameplay footage or perhaps a new story trailer may get released.

The developer promised that whatever gameplay mechanics we saw in the E3 debut trailer, will step further and new actions are about to be unlocked to make the experience more intense than it already is. Although the game is not a copy of Dark Souls, you sure can expect to die every now and then because you can always come back using an ability called "Resurrect" almost instantly after you are taken down by an enemy and that reference is already given in the game title.
