The games animation is so smooth and beautiful! Already pre-ordered. Can’t wait to see how it plays and looks on the X

Looks absolutely phenomenal.

I don't think there's anyway I'll enjoy it more than Bloodborne, but getting mentioned in the same sentence is praise enough.

Swimming is not something I thought we'd get, so that's really cool.

Also... Butterfly Hag? That doesn't sound like a boss we've seen yet, unless it's a very unfitting name for the old woman ninja who fights on wires.

Apparently her official name is Lady Butterfly, but it could still change. Butterfly hag was the name on the dev build that they played

Is that the title theme playing in the background? It sounds like Kitamura.

Awesome if she's lead composer again.
On the GI Show they said it was the same person that did Dark Souls 3, which doesn't help cause both Motoi Sakuraba and Kitamura worked on DS3

I've played every SoulsBorne game and completed none haha, but this one is looking so sweet! even though BloodBorne was smoother than past Souls games this game looks like butter, Got it preordered for day 1 so hoping i can actually complete a game on my 6th attempt...

It is Kitamura then. Sakuraba was brought in by Bandai, but he was mostly phased out for DS3 (Kitamura and Saitoh are From's in-house composers).

The music we've heard is absolutely From's own team, but I didn't know if Kitamura would have the lead again (I think Suzuki left, but I'm not sure about Saitoh—both only did one track each for DS3).

The Tenchu vibes of that mission. This is gonna be great

Yeah they confirmed it was her earlier this week.

That video was pretty unimpressive how little it showed. Felt like a teaser for more footage than anything.

Game still looks amazing though....

How many bosses are there going to be in this game?

Would anyone like to venture a guess?
Miyazaki mentioned that it will be around the same amount that you find in the souls games. There are optional bosses in Sekiro, some harder to find than others. This game has a lot of smaller mini bosses that you can kill for valuable loot (upgrade materials etc).

I've never played the souls games - how many bosses are in those?
