Steam free game is a spot-on clone of a FromSoftware classic

Steam free game is a spot-on clone of a FromSoftware classic

New Steam game Kannagi Usagi is a spot-on clone of FromSoftware's classic Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - and it's free to download.

If you’ve ever played FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you’ll likely feel right at home playing Kannagi Usagi on Steam.

Developed and published by Tonoji, Kannagi Usagi is a new swordplay souls-like that bears a striking resemblance to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, released by FromSoftware back in 2019. I say resemblance, but I mean that in terms of gameplay because unlike Sekiro, Kannagi Usagi boasts a colourful anime-inspired aesthetic. That’s realms away from Sekiro’s gritty representation of Japan’s Sengoku period. Looks aside though, if you do choose to dive into Kannagi Usagi and you’re well acquainted with Sekiro, the combat may begin to feel weirdly familiar after a while.

Take a look at Sekiro in action below.

As pointed out by one Twitter user, it looks as if Kannagi Usagi may utilise some of Sekiro’s move set. They wrote, “This is Kannagi Usagi, an anime Sekiro clone and it's FREE on Steam. Combat feels very much like Sekiro to the point that it doesn't feel legal. The move set also looks familiar.” If you hop into Kannagi Usagi’s ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews, you’ll find plenty more people making the comparison.

“Plays like a love letter to Sekiro because it is. While attack animations are clearly stolen from Sekiro (as well as an entire boss), there’s enough variety to provide a few hours of entertainment,” read one review, while another added, “Surprisingly well done. I can never get enough of Sekiro.” One review read, “Sekiro but it’s free and has anime girls,” which pretty much sums Kannagi Usagi up.

The game's official synopsis reads, “Sword fight action dedicated to boss battles. Win the battle by dominating sword to sword clashes.” As mentioned, it’s out now and is completely free to download on Steam.
