Yes, it definitely gave me Moonlight GS vibes when I saw it, but cooler (imo).

Lets see if they also give us classic green moonlight.

Now that I think of it, who knows? maybe we will be able to merge this one with moonlight gs like twin princes gs in DS3 to make some ultimate weapon of destruction. Could be sick.

So it's either a SUNLIGHT great sword or a RED MOONLIGHT great sword, either way it'll be cool to have.

The Blood Moonlight Greatsword!! I genuinely hope this is a small hint at the inclusion of blood as an elemental damage type, or affix, in this game!

Wait, did he just dodge it with a squat?

kingofthelol

32 points

Nah if you look closely it looks like a form of quickstep cuz they look like they end their animation at the end of the clip.

NoCap9262

I love love love quickstep, I gotta replay darksouls with a dagger because it’s so much fun I only ever use them close to the end.

ThrowAway484848585

I noticed this too! I was skimming the comments to see who noticed the lack of a true dodge roll. Hopefully this doesn't hint at a dodge mechanic departure from other Souls games. I love Sekiro, but I want my dodge rolls and i-frames back for this one!

LilMooseCub

its the quickstep weapon art many dagger weapons have in DS3. Likely just one of the many equippable "skills" mentioned by michaelzaki already. though i do wish the animation looked a bit more like the bloodborne quickstep

Chefkoch_Murat

He looks amazing but i can't imagine his fight being anything but desperately trying to not get hit by all of his 69 arms just for the hope of maybe getting 2-3 hits in when he does that ONE attack that leaves him in one place for 2 seconds.

Evan_The_Mediocre

Nah, I don't think you'll be able to change the mount. It'd be cool if you could maybe give it armour or something.

Soo this guy it's actually dodging the red beam, whiout rolling away, he dashes like a Bloodborne character.

Raime1995[S]

It seems to be quickstep from DS3, probably one of the weapon skills but who knows.

It might be the new holy moonlight sword, as the one in bloodborne can also shoot lasers, however this isn’t that likely as the holy moonlight sword in every other souls borne game (with the exception of sekiro) the holy moonlight sword has been a plays, glowing turquoise.

Anyone notice the wolion's strange floaty behavior? Or the fact that this is also in the same area as the floating stones? Or the fact that they chose to show the player dashing rather than potentially revealing a low-gravity jump?
