You all must be truly elite gamers, right? The kind who don’t get told to ‘git gud’ because you’re already good? While the backlash against difficulty-easing mods for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the stuff of memes, there are options out there to make the game even harder. Such as, for example, a mod that replaces every single enemy in the game with the final boss: Isshin, the Sword Saint.
Yes, every single enemy, right down to the lowliest groups of foes, and as you can imagine, that makes even Sekiro’s least notable areas into a substantial challenge. Isshin retains his normal health and moves, so it’s not simply a model swap to make standard enemies less challenging, either. Isshin even replaces all the other bosses here.
Reddit user Kahei_X created the challenge with the Sekiro Enemy and Item Randomizer, available on Nexus Mods. The mod offers various presets, including an ‘Oops! All’ option which lets you choose a single enemy to populate the entire game with. Some might choose something easy. Others want to fight Isshin ten thousand times.
