Whereas Swap house owners sadly by no means noticed a launch for FromSoftware’s critically acclaimed Dark Souls III, we have seen a lot from the franchise and wider ‘Souls’ style with the launch of Darkish Souls: Remastered and the pixel artwork homage Blasphemous.
Nicely, it now seems that Thomas Feichtmeir, an artist who labored on Blasphemous, really as soon as pitched an thought to writer Bandai Namco for a 2D pixel artwork model of Darkish Souls III. As noticed by our associates over at Time Extension, the revelation was revealed on Twitter with an accompanying mock-up screenshot added to display how the sport may need seemed.
Clearly, the artwork model could be very a lot harking back to Blasphemous, and we’re actually fairly dissatisfied that this venture by no means noticed the sunshine of day. Contemplating Swap house owners had been all the time unlikely to get the OG Darkish Souls III, this various 2D metroidvania would have been the proper various. Certainly, even Feichtmeir himself isn’t fairly positive as to why the venture wasn’t inexperienced lit.
However, he states in a Twitter reply that the venture was “an actual job”, and that “the artwork was created in a mode which might have been doable within the common funds estimations of metroidvanias again then.”
Would you have got preferred to see a 2D Metroidvania primarily based on Darkish Souls III? Reckon it could have come to Swap if it had been inexperienced lit? Tell us within the feedback!
