Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Hands-On

If you’re a fan of the Dark Souls series, you’ve probably been keeping an eye out for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the latest FromSoftware title. Well, we got it, and we’re here to break it down.


Watch me and Kotaku’s own Tim Rogers put the game through its paces for an hour and a half and answer some basic questions. How Dark Souls-y is it? Will this appeal to Nioh mavens? Will it still kick your butt? Tune in and find out.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is out Friday for PS4, Xbox, and PC.

Man, I’m sad. I really wish I could play this game, but if it has the same difficulty of the other From games, I just know I won’t be able to. I have tried all the Souls games and BB (multiple times), whatever it takes to be good at those games, I don’t have it. I don’t understand why they refuse to put an easy mode in their games. I know this is a tired argument, but it would help sales, especially for gamers with disabilities who may not be able to handle the precision their games require.
