Sekiro Armor refers to protective gear and equipment used by the player to mitigate damage in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Unlike previous Souls games by FromSoftware, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice does not include the option to upgrade armor or clothing equipment, and there aren't any skins or opportunities to change your character's appearance.

It was also revealed that there will be no Armor, Clothing or Skins of any kind and how the player looks in the gameplay footage is pretty much how he will look the entire game, with the exception of the tools you gain in your left hand. So if you were hoping for Fashion Sekiro, then you may be a bit disappointed in this regard.
