The success of Elden Ring cannot be understated, it is one of the most popular titles to be released in the last decade and, in a short amount of time, has created a lasting cultural impact on gaming and the culture around it.
That is why is it was so exciting to read today on Famitsu.com that Elden Ring is getting an official tabletop RPG akin to Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder.
The information we have right now is scant, but what is known is that the book will be produced by Hironori Kato/Group SNE and will be published by Kadokawa in early 2023. Bandai Namco previously teased that Elden Ring would expand beyond video games, so this is a start.
This is not the first time that FromSoftware have had a game transformed into a tabletop RPG, Dark Souls has also become a tabletop RPG complete with its own, 5th Edition D&D compatible, miniatures.
We will keep you updated with more information as it becomes available and who knows, maybe I will finally convince the Niche Gamer staff to do a livestream of a TTRPG for you all soon.
In case you missed it, you can find our thorough and spoiler-free review and video review for the game here – we also thought it’s excellent and highly recommended!
