This is how the official Japanese site refers to the game:

SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE オフィシャルウェブサイトです。

This might be unprecedented for From, and for most Japanese companies, but especially for them. Key illustration with the name only in English, in Japan:

I guess it must be the Activision influence, plus the fact that the bulk of their sales are overseas. Nioh for example is promoted exclusively with the title in kanji. This isn't Metal Gear Solid where the words are English. It's unheard of for a game with a Japanese title to be promoted with the fucking English transliteration. It looks fucking disgusting.

lol Ni no Kuni II is the same, on the box even. I can't believe it.

The kids must have stopped learning kanji over there or something. Eventually only a bunch of gaijin otaku will be able to read the language lol. It's tragic.
