Sekiro - Interview @Dualshockers

by Silver, 11:17

An interview about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from Dualshockers.

Giuseppe: So, first of all, let me ask you how toned down was the difficulty in the demo? I’m guessing you guys didn’t want to be too ruthless with journalists, and I certainly didn’t expect to be able to one-shot the ogre simply by sneaking up on him. 

Yasuhiro Kitao: The final balance is still being tweaked, but this time we want people to experience using a variety of strategies to take on these enemies, so that’s one example.

G: One thing that I really enjoyed was the swordplay, and I think that’s a radical departure from Dark Souls. I feel that parrying is much more relevant and spectacular. Is that an intentional approach?

YK: Yes, that’s part of wanting to create that shinobi action role play. You have to balance both offense and defense, and I’m happy that you felt that way. This is a new element of combat for us and something that we’re going to be shaping up going forward.

Sekiro - Gameplay Impressions

by Silver, 13:33

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gameplay impressions from Siliconera.

The gameplay starts off with the main character standing on a tree trunk. Using his grappling hook hidden in his arm, he swings over to a rooftop, and slowly approaches the line of enemy samurai below. Finding a straggler, he leaps down to perform a jumping stealth kill, but is discovered afterward by one of the others.

One thing surprising to note is how much of a stealth element there is in the game, which wasn’t highlighted much in the reveal trailer. Apart from stalking enemies from above, the main character can do stealth kills from a higher area, or by killing an enemy on the ledge just above him. It felt something out of an Assassin’s Creed game.

Sekiro - Resurrection & No Multiplayer

by Silver, 14:36

Gamerant reports that resurrection will be a feature of the gameplay in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In addition the game will not feature multiplayer.

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, players will be able to resurrect. This will impact the game in terms of its gameplay as well as the story, which, according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki, will center around the concept of resurrection. From a gameplay perspective, players will be able to resurrect in creative ways to actually gain an advantage over their opponents in some cases, though Miyazaki stopped short of providing any specific examples.

Sekiro - Not Story Driven

by Silver, 13:08

@USGamer Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will not be story driven according to the Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki.

...

One of the major changes in Sekiro is the use of a fixed protagonist. While games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne allowed you to create your own character and choose a skill class. That freedom also meant that the story was told through atmosphere and world-building. With Sekiro there is only one class, and there is only one pre-made character players can choose from and exploring the world from a fixed perspective makes the storytelling a bit more straightforward, at least initially. 

"First of all, we think if you ask is it going to be easy to understand? We would say yes, at least initially. There are some themes and motifs particularly tied to using a fixed protagonist that allows to explore him as a character a lot easier," said Miyazaki during our interview. "It allows for a different way for a storytelling there which was not really possible with our previous games which did not have a fixed protagonist."
