Beautiful Crowdfunded Prints Illustrate Our Favourite Weapons from Dark Souls
The Dark Souls franchise (along with Demon Souls and Bloodborne) is one of the most beloved video game dynasties of the modern era. Challenging, frustrating, exhilarating, beautiful, and euphoria-inducing all in equal measures, Dark Souls I, II and III represent one of this generation's very best game trilogies, earning the franchise a veritable army of die-hard fans.
I'm no different. I've been a fan of From Software's masterpiece franchise since I took an ill-advised wander into the catacombs right off the bat in the first Dark Souls, wondering how I was meant to get anywhere in this unapologetically obtuse and difficult game. Since then, I've become something of a Dark Souls fanatic, eagerly devouring every game and piece of DLC since then, including the PS4-exclusive and equally brilliant Bloodborne.
It's not just games themselves either, I own all of the brilliant Design Works book, rare Japanese collectors editions, UK and US special editions, the soundtracks, maps and just about anything else I can get my hands on. I also recently purchased the Dark Souls: Beyond Death books from Third Editions (which I'm eagerly awaiting as it gets translated from the original French language).
Imagine my joy then when I stumbled across a new Kickstarter campaign, featuring beautiful custom illustrations of some of the most iconic weapons from the Dark Souls franchise.
The Knight Set
The Greatsword Set
The Legendary Set
The main rewards are three limited edition sets of 12 5x5 art prints, including weapons such as the Claymore, Zweihander, Farron Greatsword, Pursuer Ultra Greatsword, and scores of others.
