New 80’s themed Dark Souls 3 trailer

Have you ever imagined what the Dark Souls series would be like if it came out in the 80s? If we are being honest, you probably haven’t but that doesn’t stop the Dark Souls 3 marketing team from trying… and surprisingly succeeding.

However if you are one of the many trying to avoid any spoilers before the – non-Japanese – Dark Souls 3 launch you may want to hold off. While the trailer focuses heavily on its parody of VHS quality, over-the-top voiceovers and cheesy narration it does also show many new locations, enemies and one or two bosses.

Otherwise, treat yourself to (another!) Dark Souls 3 trailer – only this time insanely bombastic (see if you can spot the wilhelm scream).

Ruaraidh - pronounced Roo-Ree - is a Scottish gamer with the name and games to prove it. He enjoys mostly everything, unless it involves exercise, and much prefers to run around inside a good, open-world RPG, being chased across the lands by a horde of monsters after his sweet loot. When he has made his escape, he will often return to the real world to continue playing anything with a good story - indie or otherwise.
