The trailer, which can be seen above, shows a cutscene from the title that dives a bit more into the tale that lies ahead for players. Main protagonist Sekiro, referred to as Starving Wolf in the video, is seen as a young boy on a battlefield being approached by Owl, who appears to become his master over the years. We then see Sekiro as an adult, with Owl noting that he didn't expect him to turn out the way he did.
It will be interesting to see how FromSoftware goes about focusing on the narrative in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The developer has made it known that it won't be like their past works such as Dark Souls and Bloodborne. While these titles did have a plethora of lore within them, it was usually delivered in ways that weren't exactly straightforward.
