Just a little while back, an additional small video has been added by the Chinese media to the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gameplay video that recently surfaced, which covers the complete crusade of the headless, big snake and broken ring.
Now this newly added video seems to have caught quite a lot of attention. As in the video we get to see a combat with the headless enemy inside a cave.
This headless encounter is something that is very much relatable to Souls series and perhaps the reason why there is so much excitement among fans, regarding the headless enemy.
As you may see in the video at about 2:40 minute, Shinobi enter a dark cave where it encounters the headless enemy.
That said, the similarities this game has with Dark Souls or the features that are Souls like include a dark cave on the side, rewarding exploration and there encountering the headless enemy is one of the closest similarity, we can notice so far.
Well, talking about supernatural enemies was something that most of the fans already knew would be a part of this game. We all knew that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was not 100% rooted in reality. The devs a little while back did reveal that they will be a big part of the game.
That said just recently FromSoftware rolled out the new gameplay video during Tokyo Game Show, the same one to which this small footage of headless enemy was a part of that has now been added. In the rest of the video, we also get to see Shinobi in combat with other characters and enemies as well.
Putting all that has been said, according to the president of From Software, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is not something that is has been designed as an evolution of Souls series, it was as he adds, was designed from the ground up.
Now while the president may say that some impressions of the game seen so far, do seem to suggest some similarities to the Souls series.
