But what if Dark Souls was like Cuphead?

StudioMDHR Entertainment’s retro-nostalgic die-’em-up Cuphead, a game frequently described as something like a Dark Souls platformer, is now actually a Dark Souls platformer. In a video version, anyway.

Cupsouls by YouTube channel 64 Bits makes (almost) real the most masochistic fantasies of Cuphead and Dark Souls fans, mashing up the two games into something that could probably be a legit expansion for one or the other if it weren’t for tedious industry bureaucracy.

“Before you ask, no, this is not actual gameplay!” the video description adds. “It will never be a game, but one can dream right?” Or, you know, you can play Battletoads.
