Dark Souls III is launching in North America in so little time that I can hardly type this sentence without feeling moonlight butterflies in my stomach. The anticipation is at an all-time high, and while that’s great, it might be the perfect time to get a nice refresher on all the events in previous games.
The problem, however, is that the Souls games are a good forty to sixty hours in length each, and both have such complex lore and an incredible amount of hidden flavour text that it is most likely unrealistic to play through them entirely.
Thankfully, MoonlightButterfly, an active Souls-centric video producer has made four incredible movies for everybody to watch.
He has not only managed to capture all of the important events of each game with such skill that it puts some actual films to shame, but he also managed to make them into truly cinematic experiences by reenacting key moments with characters and bosses. He even utilizes things like the in-game camera to give action sequences or conversations a dramatic touch. Overall incredible work when you consider that he did all of it in the confines of the game.
Without further ado, here’s the original Dark Souls in full.
And for those of you who want to check out Dark Souls II.
