FromSoftware teased us with a new game at the end of last year with a small teaser trailer, which might be a sequel to Bloodborne or any of the older titles from FromSoftware, which include Tenchu or Shadow Tower.
We have been waiting for quite some time for a sequel to the Bloodborne and this might be it but it looks like FromSoftware has been keeping the project very secret at the moment. If you have not seen the teaser trailer, you can check it out below:
What is Shadows Die Twice?
At this point, we can only guess what Shadows Die Twice could be. Even if this is a new IP by FromSoftware, we are certain that this is not the game name as it has a full stop at the end. Game names do not have a full stop at the end.
This could be a tagline for the game or the franchise. If you give this a thought, Bloodborne had a lot of references to shadows and the weapon or device shown in the game looks a lot like it is from the world of Bloodborne.
We all know that the studio has been very clear about the Dark Souls game. They will not create another Dark Souls game and III was the last one in the franchise.
That leaves us with either the option of a sequel to Bloodborne or it could be a spiritual successor to the souls games. The studio said that it is open to more games that might be like a spiritual successor to the Dark Souls Franchise.
The other two options that could lead to a potential title could be a new Shadow Tower game or a new Tenchu game. Both these titles are older and they were the studio’s main games before it became famous because of the Demon Souls and Dark Souls.
The tagline could also relate to Tenchu‘s Shadow Warriors or Shadow Tower‘s possible third installment in the franchise. Previous titles of Shadow Tower were on PS1 and PS2 and there has been no word about a third game.
We would like to stick with the fact that this might a new IP, which might be a spiritual successor to the Souls franchise or even better, a sequel to Bloodborne which fans have been waiting for a long time. We are eagerly awaiting more information about the game.
We currently do not know anything about an exact release date but one thing is for certain, the game will have a 2019 release date and it is not coming anytime in 2018 because the studio tweeted in December 2018 to look for further details in following 12 months.
Therefore, if we are looking for more details in these 12 months then it could only mean that the final product is not coming in 2018.
We also do not know if the title will be Playstation exclusive or will be multiplatform like later Souls games. Nevertheless, if the game is indeed a Bloodborne sequel, will it come on other consoles as well or will it stick with being a PS4 exclusive title. We are awaiting more news on this by the studio patiently and we hope to hear some news in coming months.
Our best bet for more news on this new game is E3 2018 because it is the biggest game launch platform of the year and nearly all the major game announcements have been made during the E3 conferences in the past few years.
We are hoping that FromSoftware will share more details about Shadows Die Twice in this year’s E3 and we will probably see more videos of the game.
This is all for now as that little teaser up there is the only lead we have so far from the studio. From Studio has been very quiet after it but we are still looking forward to an official release this E3. Let us know in the comments below about how you feel about the teaser and what you think FromSoftware is working on.
