Do not expect Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice to be equal to Dark Souls

Software spoke about the differences and similarities between the titlesShadows Die Twice

It's likely that the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice revelation trailer reminded you of the Dark Souls series to a certain extent. While both projects are from From Software, the company recently assured that there will be important differences between them.

During an interview with DualShockers, producer Robert Conkey and promoter Yasuhiro Kitao shared their perspective on both games. According to them, the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice match will be essentially different from the Dark Souls series.

This is because Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will have an approach that will take verticality into account. The protagonist will have several tools that will allow a more complex exploration of the maps and quite different from the one seen in Dark Souls.

In addition, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will have certain stealth mechanics and more versatility in terms of combat. The protagonist can hold a sword in one hand, while in the other a large number of tools with different effects can be equipped. Combinations between weapons will add depth to the fighting.

On the other hand, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you will not be able to choose between different character classes. Nor will there be a section of statistics, because your character will improve thanks to various options yet to be revealed. The above will involve a character development throughout the game.

Regarding the similarities, players will know the story of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in a similar way as in the Dark Souls games. This means that they will experience the narrative instead of knowing it through a sequence of scenes.

The world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will also offer freedom, so players will have to choose where to continue. Finally, the creatives revealed that Sekiro is the name of the protagonist and means "wolf with a single arm".

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will debut sometime next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
