Just this teaser and that tagline. Twitter seems to think it's a Bloodborne sequel.

They seem pretty aware of the fact that the From Soft name is enough to get people excited, because outside of hinting that it's another dark fantasy game this tells us nothing :v

“Shadows Die Twice” is a Tenchu quote.

So I’m guessing it’s a Tenchu game.

The words in the background look kind of Asian-ish. Too bad we didn't get anything more than a couple seconds.

I could see why people would think of a bloodborne sequel, since "shadows die twice " could refer to a second game of a series. But bloodborne didn't had shadows as a core theme though.

I'm interested anyway, but bloodborne 2 would really be the best thing of the week.

Maybe it's Dark Souls 4.

Really though, it might be Bloodborne 2 or something entirely new.

If you take the Japanese script and the music at face value and assume it's something they've done before, Tenchu, Kuon and Otogi could fit the bill.

People are suggesting that it could be a reboot of Shadow Tower. I think Bloodborne 2 can be ruled out because the music sounds more like Japanese horror than the dark European theme of Bloodborne. The symbols in the back look more like an asian thing as well.

[up] Meh, you're right. Watching and hearing that teaser again has me hearing vaguely far east music and those symbols in the background do look like kanji more than anything.

So...anything new here?

Also, does anyone have any idea what that...thing was in the teaser? That weird, bloody squeaky whatchamacallit?

Nothing new on it yet, but how long has the Tenchu series been dormant again? While old franchises getting revivals is nothing new, I don't know if Tenchu was ever seen as something impactful that there would be interest in a revival.

I mean, revivals don't always have to be because fans loved the old thing and want to see a new thing. Sometimes it could be "Man, this old game/movie/book had a great premise, but terrible execution. Let's go with the premise and title and try to do it better."

[up] Yeah. And the Tenchu games weren't exactly terribly regarded either from what I understand, they just weren't that popular and Fromsoft was a much lower profile studio. With all their acclaim they can probably afford a bigger budget now and try to make a new Tenchu game that will make a much bigger splash.

I suppose that's a fair point.

The original Street fighter was reportedly pretty terrible, but the idea had so much potential that they made a sequel and we all know what cash cow that became.

Not exactly the same thing, but a similar point; premise good, needs better execution, try it again.

And here we fuckin' go.

The feudal Japanese scenario of Tenchu (or Ni-Oh, for that matter) meets the glorious fuckedupness of Bloodborne.

It actually looks like its trying its own flavor of a Soulsborne game to me. There is some Bloodborne looking stuff in there though.

I used to go by the troper handles/names, Ecrivan and Bleddyn.

It might actually be a spiritual followup to the Tenchu franchise, seeing how Activision is involved.

Damn it, why wasn't I watching this thread?

I'm not excited yet, but it is Soulsborne, so I'm interested.

Disappointed that it's not something different mechanically, but I guess I should have seen it coming.

Jun 10th 2018 at 3:57:29 PM

Not really. The focus on movement and verticality is already a big difference.

Maybe it's just my Shadow Tower bias kicking in. tongue

It REALLY reminds me of nioh on a lot of aspect before the gameplay actually kicks in and it becomes more or less it's own thing. The protag even looks similar to william.

For those interested, Sekirou (隻狼) means 'lone wolf' or 'one-armed wolf'. It's probably the main character's name, if I had to guess.
