Board game creator Steamforged Games today announced its collaboration with publisher Bandai Namco on the development of an official Dark Souls board game.
“As Dark Souls fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honor of developing a board game that embraces everything that makes Dark Souls the deep, compelling game experience that it is,” Steamforged said in an announcement.
The Dark Souls board game will be launched on Kickstarter this month. A release date has not yet been given, nor has Steamforged outlined where in the Dark Souls timeline the game will be set.
Fear not, ye of little faith (in crowdfunding): Steamforged Games’ previous board game, Guild Ball, was essentially a medieval take on soccer, and raised over 300 percent of its original Kickstarter goal.
Now then, time to speculate on the name of the mystery Dark Souls board game. I’m partial to Hungry Hungry Humanity, I admit. Something a little more mature? Settlers of the Catacombs, perhaps? Sorry You Died Again?
Wait, I’ve got another one: Capra Demon Kerplunk?
