Sekiro mod adds Nic Cage death screen

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a brilliant game, and Tom awarded it 92/100 in his review (opens in new tab). But if there's one thing it lacks, it's Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage.

Thankfully, modder kasaiji has buckled to overwhelming pressure from fans and created a new mod (opens in new tab) that blesses you with Cage's face every time you die. It even has two variants: a grey face when you can still revive, and a blood red one for when you're finally, properly dead.

To install it, follow the instructions on the mod's Nexus page (opens in new tab)—you'll need to grab the Sekiro mod engine (opens in new tab) first.

It's not the first time Cage has invaded one of FromSoftware's games. A 2016 mod replaced every texture with pictures of both Cage and...er...Shrek. The result was utterly bizarre, and needs to be seen to be believed (opens in new tab).
