For those who looked deep enough, there was an impressive amount of lore and world-building in the Souls games, and Bloodborne took this to an even greater level. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice should hopefully follow in these fine footsteps, although the new story trailer for Sekiro is lot more on-the-nose than we’ve come to expect from From Software.

Unlike Souls, there’s just a single playable character in Sekiro, and it looks as if he’s called Starving Wolf. In the story trailer, we see a young Starving Wolf seemingly alone on a blood-spattered battlefield before he’s taken in by some sort of mentor who will oversee his training.

At some point between the events the trailer and when the game takes place, Wolf loses one of his arms and has it replaced by a prosthetic arm with a grappling hook attached. This is what’ll be used to leap nimbly about the environments, although hopefully, the pitchfork-wielding Battlefield V crowd doesn’t catch wind of this incredibly unrealistic prosthetic attachment. Ah well, that's a mystery for another day.  

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 22nd. The system requirements for Sekiro got revealed yesterday. You can see the full low-down here, and the good news is it looks as if Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will have similar performance to Dark Souls 3.
