Turn Your Copy Of Dark Souls III Into A Horror Flick With Printable VHS Box Art

by Joe Buchholz on Apr 15, 2016 at 09:30 AM

Video game companies elicited a lot of groans during our April Fools’ Day fake news round-up, but some of them actually used the prank holiday as an opportunity to promote their games in a smart way. Bandai Namco released a grindhouse-style trailer for Dark Souls III, and now you can make your game case look like the straight-to-VHS shown in the campy ad.

You can download and print the VHS box art for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The alternate cover will probably sit nicely next to an old Friday the 13th tape with its fake movie-reviewer quotes and promises of hi-fi stereo sound.

The VHS cover is free to download, but if you want to get the box art on a shirt or movie poster, you’ll have to shell out some cash at Bandai Namco UK’s official store. If you’re craving more gothic horror, you can watch us pass the sticks in our playthrough of From Software’s latest here.
