Developing some of the toughest and most rewarding games out there, From Software hit another one of out of the park with Dark Souls III. Using the same engine from Bloodborne, this game shines on both the PC and consoles. This game ticked off every box I was looking for in a new Dark Souls game. Containing a dark and gorgeous world filled with some of the toughest bosses I’ve faced thus far, I’m looking at you Nameless King you bastard, this is easily the game I sank the most time into this year.
The prospect of a game in the same vein as Dark Souls set in feudal Japan is something fans of the series have been clamoring for from the beginning. Niohappears to be the answer the folks over at Koei Tecmo have prepared to answer for the these pleadings. Obviously, as this game is not being made by From Software, it is not specifically a Dark Souls game, but the influences are there even though Team Ninja makes an effort to give the game a personality all for itself.
