Dark Souls official boardgame is going to Kickstarter

Steamforged has announced that they are partnering up with Namco Bandai and developing an official board game set in the Dark Souls universe, which instantly makes me imagine a deck of cards where each one simply ready "x happens, and then you die", words that mostly summarize my Dark Souls 3 experience so far.

The Dark Souls board game will be appearing on Kickstarter later this month, and while this would usually be rather damning news for a new product, Steamforged have already managed to fund a board game with Kickstarter, a medieval fantasy version of football called Guild Ball, and deliver on all of their promises.

While little is known about the mechanics of this Dark Souls board game, at least the developers seem to have their heart in the right place:

"As Dark Souls fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honour of developing a board game that embraces everything that makes Dark Souls the deep, compelling game experience that it is."

As far as Dark Souls news is concerned, however, there is a much bigger event just around the corner, the release of Dark Souls 3 on April 12. While I'm still writing down a proper review, I did do an analysis of the PC version where I've also shared my thoughts on the gameplay, so if you're looking to see if Dark Souls 3 is worth your time (hint, it is), give it a look.
