Chosen Undead, these words will stay with me for many different reasons. The haunting story that comes with the tale of Dark Souls is one that stains the life of a player. The gruesome pleasure found in the venture into finding the meaning of the “Dark Sign”, the mystery of the First Sin or even being a Champion of Ash.
The beautifully crafted combination of game mechanics and world building created a fresh and new feeling to an industry that was not innovating ideas too often. A repition of yearly releases and sequels that introduced nothing new had become standard before our first ventures into Demon’s Souls and eventually Dark Souls. The signature gameplay style has spawned many imitators, yet is still the true pioneer and king of the genre.
To celebrate the Dark Souls series, publisher Bandai-Namco have announced the release date of the 3 game box set as March 1st. The title for this collection is simply the “DARK SOULSTM TRILOGY “.
The games featured will be Dark Souls – Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin and Dark Souls 3.
This appears to be a must buy for fans and collectors of the series. Though for people who like the games enough to buy them at release, then you will already own all of this beautiful games; may as well save your cash.
Will you be picking this up on March 1st?
