An odd choice of music.
The most recent trailer for From Software’s Dark Souls III has released, featuring new gameplay footage set to a haunting cover of the pop song “True Colors”, made famous by Cyndi Lauper.
It’s not a song I ever would have considered applying to Dark Souls, its uplifting message a bit askew from the mood of the games. It works though, particularly in this version which feels much more oppressive than the popular single. The cover, performed by Richie Kohan and Faux Fix, takes the melancholy elements of the tune, slows the tempo and turns it darker with church bells and eerie piano arrangement.
Dark Souls III is still more than a month out, set to arrive on April 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
