Dark Souls™ - The Board Game Kickstarter Smashes Goals

Dark Souls™ - The Board Game Kickstarter Smashes Goals

I was once told that From Software’s Souls series is an underdog in the gaming community. That may have been true during Demon’s Souls time and even the first Dark Souls, however no one can argue that it is now one of the most popular IP’s in history thanks to the loyal community.

We have started to see all sorts of iterations of the Dark Souls fantasy outside the video games industry. Just last month the first issue of Dark Souls the comic was published by Titan Comics, a leader in the graphic novel industry.

Now prepare your soul for the highly anticipated board game by UK company Steamforged Games. Licensed with Bandai Namco, Dark Souls™ – The Board Game captures the rich and immersive universe during a 1-4 player monster hunting, boss fighting, dungeon explorer which will challenge even the most knowledgeable Dark Souls veteran.

The Kickstarter began on April 19th and was funded in just 3 minutes at £50,000 ($96,000 AUD). $1,000,000 USD ($1,314,000 AUD) was pledged in the first 24 hours, and £1,000,000 ($1,920,000 AUD) in the first 48 hours. With 15 days to go before the pledge ends, the community has already unlocked an insane amount of stretch goals – new player classes, bosses, minions, monster behaviour cards, board decorations, armour sets, plus much more. I cannot wait to see what comes next, and there is sure to be a lot more.
