At The Game Awards 2017, FromSoftware premiered a new trailer for their upcoming project. Little is shown, other than creaking metal, bone, and blood-soaked rope, and then the phrase “Shadows die twice.” But still, those familiar with their games are undoubtedly excited to see what they’re cooking up.
Many have suggested it may be a new Bloodborne game, or a new Shadow Tower game. Others have suggested it might be a new Tenchu game, too. Maybe even a new Kuon game! Maybe something else? Perhaps most excitingly, it could also be something new entirely!
Here are some things to chew on: Of course, what is the significance of “Shadows die twice”? What kind of mechanism are we looking at? Is it a weapon? And what about the writing in the background? What does it look like to you? It could look Japanese or Chinese, but it could also look like Arabic or Aramaic if you look at it sideways. What about the music? What are the things in the corners of the frame?
What do you think of this trailer? What do you speculate about the upcoming game? What are you hoping for their next project will be?
Here’s the teaser for those who haven’t seen it:
