Now Playing: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - Official Reveal Trailer | E3 2018

Shadows Die Twice is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who is known for his work on the Dark Souls franchise. A third-person game with RPG elements, Shadows Die Twice is a single-player only game.

"Collaborating with Activision on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been a very exciting experience for us," Miyazaki said. "With Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice many FromSoftware team members, including myself, are thrilled to be exploring themes of Sengoku Japan and ninja for the first time. We can’t wait for everyone to discover what’s in store for the game."

The game was first teased back in December during The Game Awards by way of a very brief and nondescript video. That led some to believe the game would be a new Tenchu.
