How to Get Sake & What It’s Used For in Sekiro
If you’ve played any of the Souls games before then you’ll be familiar with the principle of collecting dozens of items that don’t immediately appear to have any use. FromSoftware’s latest game, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, continues this tradition. Here’s how to get Sake and what it’s used for in the game.
What It’s Used For in Sekiro
In brief, sake is a key item that is used to unlock dialog conversation with NPCs. Yes, to encourage a little more conversation with some of the game’s characters you’ll need to loosen their lips with a drop of sake.
If you’ve come across sake during your playthrough, make sure you hold onto it because you’ll be able to backtrack to speak with NPCs and open new dialog with them.
