Dark Souls III is an upcoming action role-playing video game being developed by FromSoftware. The fourth entry in the Souls series, Dark Souls III will be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Japan in March 2016, and worldwide the following month. A comic is scheduled for release following in April 2016.
It’s not the only game to be joining this year in the Dark Soul series, as it is now confirmed by Bandai Namco that there’s going to be RPG spin off to the original game for mobile devices. Slashy Souls is due to arrive tomorrow, February 28.
Bandai Namco was quick to point out that Slashy Souls is inspired by Dark Souls but is not directly connected to the series. It follows similar themes, including a focus on challenge, but it’s not developed by From Software.
Instead, Slashy Souls reimagines Dark Souls’ gameplay through the lens of 16-bit graphics and the endless runner genre. While the gameplay is different than fans might expect, it will include weapons, spells and bosses that are familiar to anyone who’s played Dark Souls.
While the game won’t be live until tomorrow, you can check out a few minutes of footage from the iOS version in the video below.
Slashy Souls will be available for android and ios devices on 28 February 2016 and Dark Souls 3 is set to be launched for XBOX ONE, PLAYSTATION 4 and PC in April 2016(worldwide).
