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.
