Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Story Preview

As the launch date draws near, developer From Software released a story trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Following their critical and commercial success on Bloodborne and games from Dark Souls series, Japanese game developer From Software has returned with their newest release from publisher Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Listed as one of our most anticipated video game of 2019, the upcoming action-adventure title has managed to raise enough curiosity among players but all it lacked so far is a backstory of the protagonist and oh Lawd, it is comin' this way.

Witness how the one-armed wolf started his journey in late 1500's Sengoku Japan as he eventually becomes a shinobi.

In a vague way, the trailer opens up to a brutal period of Japan that was an era of bloody conflicts after the fall of their feudal system. It slightly sheds light on the origin of protagonist Wolf but still left many details covering in obscurity.

When the Owl found the boy amidst pile of corpses that was littered with blood and held his sword at him, the lad fearlessly grabbed the tip of it. Impressed by the fearless gesture of that stray, he took in his new apprentice who would later become a powerful ninja.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be launching on 22 March, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although the game does not have a multiplayer mode, single player campaign introduce a new level of challenge while gameplay mesh of parkour and stealth mechanics keeps it intriguing.

Not stepping too far from their previous releases, From Software has included acclaimed combat systems from the aforementioned video games into Sekiro. Boss battles you will get into are much more different than previous games as well.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2019

New Year looks promising for gaming fans and we are here with our top 10 most anticipated video games of 2019 that are going to blow everyone away.

Along with numerous bumps in the road, 2018 went somewhat well in terms of video games released throughout the year mostly because of wonderful games like God of War (2018), Marvel's Spider-Man, Monster Hunter: World and Red Dead Redemption 2.

We had few unfortunate stinkers like Fallout 76 and Metal Gear Survive but despite all that, 2019 is looking very promising with all the new and remake titles headed to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One all year long.

Of course this one will be at the top. Fans have been waiting like crazy for this anticipated remake of the ageless survivor horror classic for the last few years and even though this is a reiteration of the original Resident Evil 2, people are still excited as hell!

Rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield finds them amidst a zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and tries to fight their way out. Developer/publisher Capcom went back to the root of horror with RE2Make using their revolutionary RE Engine.

02. Anthem (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although developer BioWare was not very successful in satisfying the fans with their last game Mass Effect: Andromeda, players are still willing to give them a chance with this one and admit it or not, it might actually course correct its way where Destiny 2 has failed.

This online multiplayer shooter avoids the typical norms of an open world environment and regardless of what some may think, it could really become a blockbuster hit. An Open Beta is currently scheduled for early February that you should take part in to see what they are offering.

03. Kingdom Hearts III

03. Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Even though it basically is the twelfth installment from Kingdom Hearts series, it is the latest main entry coming on consoles from developer/publisher Square Enix, fourteen years after the release of Kingdom Hearts II as a worthy successor.

Series protagonist Sora is returning with his friends Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey and Riku to prevent the second Keyblade War. Popular Disney and Pixar characters will crossover during the journey alongside some familiar faces from Final Fantasy franchise.

04. Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One)
Okay, if Microsoft Studios delays the game for some reason this year again, we are officially not interested in it anymore. Because, the title was all set to launch in 2016 which is then got pushed to next year and the next after it settled for February 2019.

Despite all the skepticism it has given us, we still believe that the game can be one of the most successful title of the year 2019 if it can manage to live up to the promises it made to fans. The sort of in-game destructive mechanism it is offering is essential for an addictive multiplayer mode.

05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
In past, developer From Software has worked on games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, which should give you an idea of the quality for their upcoming action-adventure title Sekiro and if you have seen any in-game footage so far, you know that we are not exaggerating.

However, the studio has no intention of making it anything like their past games at all. The game follows the chronicles of a fallen shinobi with a prosthetic arm who took it upon himself to go after a samurai for attacking him and kidnapping his lord.

devil may cry 5 pc playstation 4 xbox one
06. Devil May Cry 5

06. Devil May Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After a long departure following the commercial failure of DmC: Devil May Cry in 2013, developer/publisher Capcom brings back the action-adventure hack and slash game series with Devil May Cry 5 that is currently aiming at March 2019 release.

Both Dante and Nero are returning as playable characters in DMC5, which is set after the second game of the franchise. Aside from the signature combat system and photo-realistic graphics style, the game introduces The Void mode for extensive training.

star wars jedi fallen order pc playstation 4 xbox one
07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After the debacle of Star Wars Battlefront II, fans are not trusting Electronic Arts or EA DICE with the franchise anymore but with Respawn Entertainment on the development wheel, we have some hope that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will actually be good.

The game follows the narrative of a Padawan survived the Jedi purge after the events of Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The title is going to focus on an action-adventure gameplay from third-person perspective and we may get an exclusive reveal before E3 2019 as well.

days gone playstation 4
08. Days Gone

08. Days Gone (PlayStation 4)
Zombie apocalypse is quite a cliché in the world of video game now that except for a few established franchises, not everyone is making it exciting anymore but developer Bend Studio showed enough promise with their upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone that we were hooked.

The game took a different approach with the horde and making them fast runners like the ones from 28 Days Later but calling them "Freakers". Players will enter this journey of survival horror by assuming the role of bounty hunter Deacon St. John.

the division 2 pc playstation 4 xbox one
09. The Division 2

09. The Division 2 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although the original game died down after a time by losing players for not having engaging endgame content and due to lack of updates, developer Massive Entertainment assures that they will not repeat the mistake with the anticipated sequel that is offering Year One DLC for free.

The series arguably has one of the best core gameplay that can outshine many other AAA titles but coming up with a satisfying endgame experience is also crucial to its success. A better progressing system can keep the upcoming online action RPG alive in the long-run.

mortal kombat 11 nintendo switch pc playstation 4 xbox one
10. Mortal Kombat 11

10. Mortal Kombat 11 (Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
For long, game director Ed Boon has been teasing the fans of Mortal Kombat series on the next release but each time they backed out of revealing it. Finally, developer NetherRealm Studios dropped an announcement trailer of MK11 during The Game Awards 2018.

The long-awaited game is going to release more details this month in a "Community Reveal" and will return in its gory glory within next four months with a possibility of introducing the Multiverse. The iconic brawler looks better and badass than ever.

To our deepest regrets, some of the top-notch game everyone has been looking for has not made it to the list because they do not have a definitive year of release officially announced yet, namely Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II.

Depending on your taste and viewpoint, you may have a completely different list in mind and we believe that is perfectly normal, because so many titles have been keeping the fans hyped up for 2019 and it is too damn hard to pass most of them from including into the list.

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.

When developer From Software initially teased about their new project in with a brief clip back in December, players thought it to be sequel of Bloodborne series but as soon as they dropped a trailer at E3 2018 press conference, everyone started comparing the game to their popular Dark Souls series. However, none of these claims about upcoming action-adventure title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is true and currently we have a scheduled date for the game set on 22 March, 2019.

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.
