Where to Find & How to Change Text & Voice Language Options in Sekiro?

To change the language of text and voice in Sekiro, you first have to exit the game to the title screen. The options you have there are Continue (if you’ve played already), Load Game, New Game, and Language. Pretty obvious what you have to select here. Once you’re in the Language screen, you have two options to play with: one is Voice, changing the game’s spoken language, and Text, which toggles the language of, well, the text. There’s a ton of options to choose from, so you’ll very likely find what you need.

The reason why the developers have left Japanese as the default spoken language of the game is because they felt that makes it more authentic. The subtitles, on the other hand, default to your region. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to experience the game that way. Maybe you want everything to be in English. Or whatever other language suits your preferences better. I feel like you can leave the audio as is, but again, that’s just a matter of what you like best.

So, yeah, changing the language in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is fairly easy. Other things, on the other hand, can give you some pretty decent headaches. If this is the case with you, I’d like to invite you to check out some of our other Sekiro guides, including, among others, Memory Mechanic – How to Increase Attack Power and Dragonrot & Resurrection Mechanic Explained.
