Dark Souls looks very promising as a Mega Man clone

When people think of platformers that may have inspired the Dark Souls series, it's usually Ghosts and Goblins and Castlevania that come immediately to mind.

While those games share some aesthetic similarities to Dark Souls, Mega Man certainly doesn't. So it's even more fun to imagine a parallel universe where the worlds of Dark Souls and Megaman meet.

There's no gameplay unfortunately: the video below simply offers a glimpse of how Legends of Lordran would look booting up, and which characters would be available from the outset.

Make sure you look closely at the character selection screen.

A big shout out to YouTuber TetraMantis for the excellent video. The YouTube channel specialises in deconstructing Dark Souls' notoriously cryptic lore.

Dark Souls 2 releases March March 11 in the US and March 14 in Europe and Australia.
