"Why wait? Die today."


Dark Souls III

[UPDATE] Slashy Souls is out now as a free game for iOS and Android devices. A trailer for the game, which is inspired by April's Dark Souls III, is available below.

The original story is below.

Dark Souls III isn't the only new game in the series coming this year. Bandai Namco today confirmed an earlier report and announced Slashy Souls, a spinoff of the RPG series for mobile devices. You won't have to wait long to play it, as Slashy Souls is due to arrive tomorrow, February 28, Polygon reports.

Bandai Namco is working with video game retailer GameStop on Slashy Souls. The store also recently partnered with Sunset Overdrive studio Insomniac Games for Song of the Deep.

The publisher says Slashy Souls is inspired by Dark Souls but bears no direct connection to the series, though one of its themes is a focus on challenging gameplay. The 16-bit game is of the endless runner genre, and contains weapons, spells, and bosses that should feel familiar to Dark Souls fans, Polygon says.

You can watch the first gameplay from Slashy Souls over at Polygon.

Slashy Souls is scheduled to launch tomorrow for iOS and Android devices. Whether it's a paid or free-to-play game remains to be seen. Check back tomorrow to learn more.

The next entry in the mainline series, Dark Souls III, arrives for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in April.
