Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Cut Content Reveals New Piece Of Story
No good deed goes unrewarded.
A piece of cut content from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been uncovered, and it recontextualizes an important moment late in the game. Spoilers follow.
The modder Lance McDonald, who is known for having uncovered cut content in previous FromSoftware games, found an important but missing piece of dialogue surrounding the character Anayama. If he catches Dragonrot, he can be cured, but he curiously lacks any kind of dialogue when it happens.
Apparently that's not the case if he's cured using a special curative pellet that was cut from the game. In that instance, he was going to have an exchange in which he refused to accept the item for free, and so Sekiro charged him a nominal fee of a single Sen. That information changes the context of a later story event, when Sekiro meets Anayama for the last time near the end of the game. At that point, Ayanama offers the Promisory Note for a single Sen, effectively exchanging the kindness back in return.
