This Real-Life Sekiro Shinobi Prosthetic Arm is Amazing

A Redditor has replicated the Shinobi Prosthetic from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

If I thought that playing Sekiro over the weekend with barely a moment's break was dedication, I might need to reconsider my stance. A Shadows Die Twice fan has recreated the Shinobi Prosthetic used by the titular Sekiro in the game, and it's brilliant.

Over on Reddit, the 'Built a Prosthetic Arm replica for Sekiro's launch event' was the post that caught everyone's eye over the weekend. Just below you can see a selection of the images that Reddit user GS-alpeR posted to Imgur to showcase the process of constructing the real-life Shinobi Prosthetic.

Well hot damn, that's an amazing construction. The Reddit user that created the prop said that they've taken the arm to a few promo events for Sekiro so far, and no, they're not totally convinced it would actually work as a real replacement arm.

I love the attention to detail on the tiny parts of the Prosthetic arm. The bone section of the arm, made from wood, thankfully, has been purposefully scarred with a tool to give it a weathered and worn effect. After all, the Shinobi Prosthetic is a bit of a makeshift device in Sekiro.

Now, can this dedicated person please help me beat the Demon of Hatred?
