This page teaches players about Save Management for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Included are save limitations and conditions for all platforms.

  • The game autosaves regularly on a timer and after most actions, often after any item has been picked up or dropped, an enemy defeated, an idol communed or rested at or a conversation had with an NPC.
  • Players can have multiple save slots.
  • "Save Scumming" is the practice of creating a copy of your save to an external location, so that you may revert to it and change your actions.
    • "Save Scumming" is particularly useful for seeing several Endings in one playthrough.
    • Note that beating the final boss of the "good" path does not immediately force the player to choose an ending, so a backup can be made here allowing players to view the three non-Shura endings if they have the required items to unlock them. The player is also free to leave the area after the boss is beaten but before choosing their ending.

          I created two programs that will assist Windows users in the process of what you guys apparently call "save scumming". You can read my guide for a full description of the source code and the process of using the program. Executable versions of the program are available for anyone who (A) trusts the vibe of this message and wants to save time, or (B) isn't tech-savvy enough to feel comfortable downloading Visual Studio, creating a project, setting it to a Windows Application, copy-pasting some code, and clicking "Build".

            I play on XboxOne. Say that, after defeating the final boss, I save, quit, re-enter and I choose ending number one. After that's done, I choose "Load Game" from the main menu and it's gonna put me back right after I defeated the final boss, so I can choose endings 2 or 3? It's not gonna rewrite after ending number one?

              If there are multiple accounts on one console, does each account have its own save? Or if one profile starts a new game, does it bork the current profile save? Example: GamerDad is 75% done. GamerSon wants to try. If he starts a new game on his profile (same console) does it overwrite GamerDad's?

                When you put your save back onto your ps4 form your usb does that save overwrite your existing one on the console, or does it create a separate save?
