To some, Dark Souls III is a test of your skill, reflexes, and tolerance for punishment. As you explore this vast, interconnected world, you will come across new bosses, die A LOT, and then eventually release a guttural scream of victory as the credits roll. To others -- like me -- Dark Souls III is a rage inducing, controller snapping experience that, while completely respectable as a game, isn't worth the lost time...or the brain aneurysms. However, that doesn't make the story any less intriguing.
The Dark Souls series has never been one to shove story and lore in your face. In fact, it's completely possible for players to make it to the end and not really understand what happened in the story. Thankfully, YouTube user MoonlightButterfly has been making sense of the series' complex story by turning each game into its own movie. Now, a few weeks after Dark Souls III's release, it has finally received the MoonlightButterfly treatment:
With a running time of 1 hour, 43 minutes, and 16 seconds, MoonlightButterfly expertly weaves together gameplay, dialogue, and cutscenes from Dark Souls III, creating a cohesive viewing experience for those interested in the Dark Souls III story. Additionally, since there are alternate endings to Dark Souls III, there are a few alternate endings to the movie as well. You can find these alternate endings on MoonlightButterfly's Dark Souls III playlist. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a movie to catch and I need to get the popcorn.
