Game Informer | Exclusive Gameplay From Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's Hirata Estates

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).
Saitoh was the lead composer for Déraciné so he's probably still around.

The way you execute enemies reminds me so much of Tenchu, this area reminds me of it. The walking atop rooftops and so on all reminds me of it and I love it.

Can't wait.

Lack of MP means this is likely gonna be a one-and-done for me, unlike the previous games, but I'm still looking forward to what they do with the setting. Dark Souls & Bloodborne's respective descents from very trope-y settings and enemies to straight-up nightmare fuel are some of my favorite enemy escalations in any game I've played.

There is a playfulness too, in the level and encounter design, that I haven't seen in many other games. Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne both had traps with designs that were similar to traps that appeared in Demon's Souls and the first 2 Dark Souls, but the traps were remixed in ways that seemed specifically made to trip up returning players. It feels like the team at FromSoft is having a dialogue with their players, through the level design, and I find that really cool when I'm playing these games.

The game looks really damn good visually especially compared to the Souls games. Then again being fully single player probably helps with that a bit.

So at least that many + hidden ones?!?

Oh man - sign me up!!
I mean...we have no idea if this will have as many bosses as a Souls game. It looks less and less like a Souls games with every new video, and I mean that in the best way possible and as a huge Souls fan.

I'm just starting to realize the hype that there's going to be a new FromSoft game coming in a few months. Damn. Can't wait to play it.

I love it too!

I remember reading somewhere that originally this game was going to be a Tenchu sequel, but I could be wrong.
If I love this game, I just might ;)

Going to likely be a toss up between this and RE2 for me. This year is going to be a strong one in any event.

This whole time I’ve been pronouncing it “Say-Key-Rho”

I feel dumb.
It probably doesn't technically sound like the way the GI guy pronounced it either. Most have been pronouncing it closer to "Sah-Key-Rho" anyway. The Japanese pronunciation is probably different from both as well.
