The lights are on
An endless runner spin-off of Dark Souls called Slashy Souls has been revealed and will be hitting iOS and Android tomorrow, February 28, according to Polygon. Polygon is also reporting that Bandai Namco has been working with GameStop (Disclosure: GameStop is Game Informer's parent company) on the mobile title.
From the brief footage shown, Slashy Souls resembles endless runners like Temple Run and Robot Unicorn Attack while retaining the series' gloomy aesthetic. There's no indication whether or not Slashy Souls will be free-to-play.
You can watch the game in action over at Polygon.
Our TakeMobile spin-offs and tie-ins for big game releases are not uncommon. However, an endless runner for Dark Souls seems to be an odd mash of genres.
