Developed by FromSoftware, the same studio behind acclaimed titles such as“Dark Souls” and “Bloodborne,” “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” features an immersive and challenging gameplay experience set in a stylized feudal Japan. The game combines a deep narrative with intense and challenging gameplay mechanics, offering a unique experience that sets it apart from other games in the action-adventure genre.
The game revolves around a shinobi known as “Sekiro,” or “one-armed wolf,” on his mission to rescue his young lord and avenge past injustices. Set in a fictionalized version of the Sengoku period in Japan, the game immerses players in a world rich in history and culture, with a particular emphasis on Japanese folklore and mythology. The landscapes are breathtaking, from tranquil temples to snow-capped mountains and crumbling castles, each presenting its own unique challenges and enemies.
What sets Sekiro apart from other games is its combat system. Unlike FromSoftware’s other titles, which allow for a variety of play styles, Sekiro focuses on precision and timing. The game requires players to quickly adapt to enemy attack patterns and respond with precise movements. This focus on skill and strategy makes each victory feel incredibly rewarding.
In addition to its gameplay,“Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is notable for its narrative. The game tells a compelling story that unfolds through dialogue, environmental discoveries and cinematic sequences. The characters are well-developed, each with their own motives and secrets that players can discover along their journey.
But let’s turn now to the typography, the subject of this article. As with most video games, all the art is created exclusively by the artists. The Sekiro typography we bring you today is not an official typography but one created by a fan of the game. The font is called “Serpentine Display Font” created by JoannaVu and you can download it for free for personal use, that is, for non-commercial projects.
If you like the Sekiro typeface, we recommend you to take a look at the one from “The Witcher“, because, although they are not very similar, we are sure you will like it.
