We’re edging ever closer to the launch of Sekiro, in just over a month the new FromSoftware IP will be released. Until then, the developer is ready to tease more of the epic bosses that will grace the game, this time featuring Lady Butterfly in their latest trailer.
Sekiro Gets New Trailer Featuring Lady Butterfly
Sharing another enemy from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, on the Playstation Youtube channel we get a glimpse of boss Lady Butterfly. While this appears to be an elderly woman, she is not to be underestimated, armed with twin daggers she’s definitely a cut above the rest. Her movements are fluid and agile, with a snap of her fingers she summons her deadly weapons with ease. She can also attack from heights, unlike Sekiro who will need to physically grapple structures using his prosthetic arm, Lady Butterfly seems to stand on “illusions” mid-air, which looks like thin wires, making her quite an aerial boss.
Again, just like the last trailer that featured General Tenzen Yamauchi, we only get to see a few moves before the video cuts to black. We do get to hear her speak, calling Sekiro the “son of Owl” which refers to his master who was introduced in a preview story trailer. The whole battle takes place in a burning building which neither character seems to be concerned about, as they are too transfixed on the fight about to take place. It also appears that these two are not strangers, Lady Butterfly says “It’s been a long time…” meaning they have met previously.
Players will have to come up with strategies to beat this boss, while being wary of combat features including Posture which depletes as you strike your enemies as well as perform finishers. If you want to know more about combat you can find out more in our Sekiro Gameplay And Hands-On Gameplay And Impressions.
