The acclaimed Dark Souls series developer FromSoftware's newest project was revealed during E3 earlier this year, an action-adventure title where players take control of a ninja with a powerful prosthetic arm. And today, the publisher Activision shared the game's release date as well as details on a Collector's Edition.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 22. Also, those attending gamescom this week will be able to get some hands-on time with the game to try out the combat mechanics.
Here's a useful description of the game provided by the publisher as a reminder of what it's all about:
Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a single-player game that puts players in the protagonist role of a hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis. Players will enjoy combining features, such as vertical traversal, with visceral head-to-head battle to fulfill their destiny in a vast world filled with beautiful vistas, enormous castles, bizarre weaponry, and fearsome enemies.
As for the Collector's Edition, it arrives with a copy of the game in a Steelbook case, a seven-inch shinobi statue, an art book, a map, the soundtrack in digital form, as well as some replica coins from the game itself.
The press release did not include a price for the Collector's Edition, but it will be available for pre-order starting today from select retailers. Meanwhile, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice standard edition digital pre-orders have already opened up for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 editions via their respective stores.
