Dark Souls dev teases bizarre new game

Just how strange can From Software games get?

From Software is making yet another bizarre-looking game, and we've just received our first glimpse at it (not that the footage told us very much though).

Last night during The Game Awards 2017 show host Geoff Keighley showed off a small 30-second window into From Software's new game. The tiny clip was indeed quite odd and has sparked lots of speculation on what the esteemed Bloodborne and Dark Souls dev is working on...but I have a feeling people are off the mark.

The teaser itself gives a few small hits: the unannounced game seems to have an Asian bent due to the scroll in the background, however what exactly that no one really knows. I speculated that it looks like a weird biological-machine entity as the bone structure somewhat resembles a tibia. Maybe From Software is working on a game about ninjas who are brought back to life to kill again?

Accompanying the small glimpse of footage we get a tagline: shadows die twice. Hmmmm...What could it mean?

Back in 2016 From Software's Hidetaka Miyazaki told Gamespot that the studio is making a weird new game: "When I say 'weird,' the genre might be a little weird. The game is weird. But we are diligently making it in all seriousness, so I just want people to know that when they think it's strange."

This one certainly seems weird enough. So far at least.
