Mistborn Author Says He Has a 'SoulsBorne' Pitch After Bandai Namco Expresses Interest in Working With Him

Brandon Sanderson, author of the Mistborn series of fantasy book, has been contacted by Bandai Namco about working on a game.

The reveal came as part of Sanderson's most recent livestream, in which the author unboxed a rather gorgeous Elden Ring gift set from Bandai Namco (we're definitely not jealous). Along with a woodcut and a full-sized sword, the set came with a note from the publisher. While Sanderson didn't read the note out in full, he did summarise the contents.

“Well, they are interested in perhaps doing something together, is what that says. Which I am as well.”

Speaking further on the topic, Sanderson actually confirmed that he has a pitch for a ‘SoulsBorne’ ready to go.

“This is how I roll, I actually have a pitch for them in the back of my head, if I ever had a chance, so I may have to send them my pitch and see what they think,” Sanderson said. “I always have a pitch for everything…like, if I were ever going to do a SoulsBorne game, what would I do?”

“Obviously I don't get to decide that, right? But I've just had that in the back of my head, so maybe you guys will hear something from me. I have some ideas, I always have ideas.”

Sanderson is a self-proclaimed fan of FromSoftware's games, and video games in general, and he jokingly said last year that the Japanese developer should have contacted him for Elden Ring, rather than George R.R. Martin.

  • The more souls games the better. Just dont make them easy like elden ring
  • Mistborn is great but Brando's Stormlight series is better from his Cosmere universe. Less books in Stormlight but per book sales are better and has better potential for classes and character creation compared to Mistborn era 1 at least for which Mistborn is most famous for.
  • Too bad the Mistborn game never came to be. I'm sure that wasn't from a lack of trying on his part, but Little Orbit is not a great company to have given it to. They actually had talks with Obsidian to maybe take over development when it stalled internally, but that didn't work out.
