Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - Every Ending Explained (And How To Get Them)

Be prepared to do a LOT of eavesdropping.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been out for nearly two weeks now, and there's a whole load of players freaking out over how to get the 'good' endings, and what any of them even mean. FromSoftware's latest has four separate finales that each require a bunch of different hoops to jump through (and bosses to beat), and it can be a bit of a nightmare to figure the requirements out without accidentally locking yourself out of all the options.

Fortunately, you can put off deciding which ending you actually want to choose right until the game's very final moment, and explore every nook and cranny of the map beforehand. Sadly, specific endings have specific bosses tied to them, so if you're going for that 100% completion or platinum trophy, it's going to take at least two playthroughs to get everything you need.

As is the FromSoftware way, most of the endings are bittersweet, one is something you absolutely want to avoid on your first go through, and one is no doubt going to be considered the canon ending when the inevitable sequel comes around. Making sense of all these different scenarios, however, is an entirely different deal altogether...
