Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been off to a great reception but also was a subject of controversy since some players thought the game should have an easy mode. A quadriplegic YouTuber, LimitlessQuad, decided to show why it's unnecessary.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is another entry in FromSoftware's player masochism series that previously featured just the Souls and Bloodborne titles. While many loved Sekiro for keeping the challenging aspects up, some have asked for an easy mode which didn't sit well with the hardcore fans of the series.

One of them seems to be a YouTuber, named LimitlessQuad, who took it upon himself to beat the game and prove that it really doesn't need training wheels . Many have beaten the game already and this attempt wouldn't stand out among them of not for one twist - LimitlessQuad is quadriplegic.

As you can see in the video above, he is showing a fight against the Corrupted Monk that has given many a player nightmares, in part due to the horrific parasite popping out of the monk's neck, but mostly because they kept failing the challenge time and time again.

LimitlessQuad beat the boss on 29 March 2019, a week after the game was released. One might argue that it took too long and some people don't have the time to learn the game but they seem to forget that the best part of the game is the journey, not the end we all rush to reach.

Speaking of the end, LimitlessQuad posted another video on 3 April 2019 where he beat the final boss, Isshin, the Sword Saint. This boss was challenging in particular, with guides on how to beat him flying all over the place but the determined player was having none of it - he didn't allow his disability nor the challenge to stand in his way. You can watch the entire fight below this paragraph.

LimitlessQuad is not the only player who proved that Sekiro is not a game that should be considered too hard. ATwerkingYoshi recently posted a video showing him beating Isshin by playing the game on DK Bongos, just in case someone had any complaints about control layout on the regular gamepads.
