If you have visited any game-related forum in the last two weeks, you may have heard about the controversy surrounding Sekiro's difficulty: Shadows Die Twice. Although we can discuss accessibility in games like Sekiro (I think that the game is one of the most accessible from From Software to date), it seems that the difficulty of the game has not scared the players. According to the publisher Activision, Sekiro has sold more than 2 million copies during its first 10 days in the market. Michelle Fonseca, Vice President Marketing and Producer of Activision, said:
"Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has brought something very special and unique to Activision's game portfolio. It's an honor to work with From Software to help introduce a brand new franchise to players around the world. Fans have made Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice one of the most incredible game launches from 2019 to date. The game has worked well on all platforms, including PC, and we are excited by the constant support of players and critics alike. It has been gratifying to see the pleasure of the fans when they overcome each challenge. "
In comparison, the Dark Souls original sold 2.37 million euros in its first year and a halfDark Souls 2 sold for $ 2.5 million in the first year and it took Dark Souls 3 several months to reach $ 3 million. So, if Sekiro's sales remain stable and there's no reason to believe that's not the case, From's toughest game is about to become the most successful game of all time. In other words, expect more punishment in the future.
You have not taken Sekiro yet? Although the game is not perfect, I thought it was an exciting and surprisingly exciting adventure in my complete account …
"You can know that De Software was happy to try something a little different with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The game has some mechanical problems, which can largely be attributed to the nervousness of the new series, but its energy and enthusiasm compensate for most of its faults. Yes, Sekiro can sometimes be downright sadistic, but those who have bushido (or old stubbornness) to meet his challenges will spend a lot of time. "
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
