Our top pick of the week?
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
I don’t think this choice will surprise anyone. From Software have made a name for themselves by creating one of the most popular mini genres of recent history.
Moving away from what they’ve done before Sekiro feels familiar but enough of a departure to stand apart from it’s older brother and sister, Dark Souls and Bloodborne. With a much more narrative focus then previously can lightning strike for the third time?
