Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is just about a month away and we’re excited. Not too long ago, we shared a story trailer that told us a little more about the game’s main protagonist, One-armed Wolf (his true name has yet to be confirmed). This time around, FromSoftware’s trailer gives us a quick look at Lady Butterfly, an older yet agile ninja-like woman, who kind of reminds us of Lady Maria from Bloodborne. Going back to the main protagonist, in the teaser trailer he’s referred to as “Son of Owl.”
The teaser is short but sweet, just 28 seconds long, and only shows off what seems to be the opening segment of the Lady Butterfly boss fight — so no worries about running into any major spoilers. Just from the teaser itself, it’s clear to see that Lady Butterfly is quite old, but age means nothing since she’s able to hop around and move about with tremendous speed. The boss fight will most likely require players to try their best to track and keep up with Lady Butterfly, all the while finding the opportune moment to strike.
As far as why Sekiro‘s Lady Butterfly reminds of Bloodborne‘s Lady Maria, it’s due to how agile and deadly both characters are — obviously, they have different fighting styles, but still. Also, both character fights are more like one-on-one, test-of-agility duels to the death, which I love. But if we really want to make another comparison, we’ll just say that Sekiro’s Lady Butterfly is kind of like Genkai from Yu Yu Hakusho, alrighty?
Aside from character comparisons, the music in the teaser trailer and the boss fight arena just send shivers of excitement down our spines. FromSoftware knows how to capture the player’s attention, and it appears that the studio will continue to do so with Sekiro.
Go ahead and meet Lady Butterfly by watching the teaser trailer below:
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 22.
Author’s take: Well, I’m pretty sure just like with Lady Maria, I’ll end up fighting Lady Butterfly more than 40 times simply because I’ll enjoy the fight so much!
