FromSoftware has released a new Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice story preview trailer. In it, we see a battle raging in Japan, as well as the circumstances that led a warrior known as the Owl to take in a young boy he calls Wolf.

Check out the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice story preview trailer below:

In the aftermath of a gruesome battle, the Owl finds a new apprentice.

The game’s director Miyazaki has previously talked about how Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will have “things beyond human.” Even with that in mind, it seems that FromSoftware is telling a story in a fictionalized, mythologized version of Japan, a version that still references historical periods and events.

This lines up with what Miyazaki said about the world, stating ““Of course it’s important to retain a sense of faithfulness, but we’re not trying to make a historical depiction of the Sengoku era. While we explored more drastically fantastical elements in our previous games, we want to approach this with a little more dignity this time – a little more carefully maybe.”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice releases on March 22nd, 2019 for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. For more information on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you can check out the Tokyo Game Show 2018 trailer right here, as well as the collector’s edition of the game here. You can also read these statements from
