Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Release Date, Collector’s Edition Revealed

FromSoftware fans rejoice! As Gamescom 2018 gets underway, publisher Activision have announced that Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, the highly anticipated action-adventure RPG from the developers of the tough-as-nails Dark Souls games will be releasing worldwide on March 22, 2019.

Alongside the date revealed, they’ve also lifted the lid on a pretty swanky Collector’s Edition of the game complete with a steelbook case, 7″ shinobi statue, map, art book, collectible coins and a digital soundtrack. The Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition will retail for $149.95AUD and is available for preorder now at JB Hi-Fi and EB Games.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will also be playable on the show floor at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany this week for the first time in a public capacity.

“We can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice,” said Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision. “Fans will get a taste of the multiple tools available for the prosthetic shinobi arm this week at Gamescom and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500s Sengoku Japan when the game launches on March 22, 2019.”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 22, 2019 and is available for preorder now at participating retailers and on digital storefronts.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
