FROM Software’s Japanese fantasy action project Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, shown off during Microsoft’s E3 presentation this year, has people pretty excited. Dark-Souls-but-not-Dark-Souls, with katanas a’swinging and ninjas a’ninjaing, sounds like a solid recipe. We’re excited. And now we know when it will be hitting store shelves, because we’ve got a release date, just like the headline says.
If you were somehow hoping to see Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice under your Christmas tree this year, you’re out of luck – it will only be with us on 22 March next year. The first project under the direct guidance of FROM president Hidetaka Miyazaki alone since Bloodborne, this one takes players far away from the dark fantasy setting of Dark Souls to 16th century Japan. You’ll play as a shinobi, and going by the footage shown so far, things get all kinds of intense, in true FROM Software fashion.
Publisher Activision has also put together a lovely Collector’s Edition for the hardcore fans, packed with typically Collector’s Editiony things. Here, have a look:
Expect to hear a lot more about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as we head towards its release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC next year.
