Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is an action-adventure game developed by FromSoftware (The studio behind Dark Souls). The game takes place in a fantastical version of 16th century Japan where you control a Shinobi out for vengeance. Like God of War, the action is brutal, and the game takes inspiration from both history and myth.

Both games also contain big snakes!
