Fans of the greatly enjoyable but exceedingly frustrated game series Dark Souls can begin to rejoice, maybe. It seems that there may well be plans in place to bring the Dark Souls series to virtual reality sometime in the future.
During the pre-show for the 2016 Golden Joystick Awards, host Julia Hardy asked Dark Souls 3 producer Atsuo Yoshimura what he thought about the young virtual reality tech sector. When asked if we would see Dark Souls in VR at any point he nervously responded; “Yes…?” before laughing and following up with “We’re hoping.”
Sounds to me like FromSoftware is prototyping a VR experience within the Dark Souls universe. We may not be seeing a retail version for a while but its nice to know the studios at least working on a few opportunities given by the new technology.
Check out the interview below and see what you make of his words.
The start of the interview is at 45:35, and the VR question is at 52:30.
