Dark Souls Meets Hollow Knight in Brilliant Art Crossover

Darks Souls crosses over with Hollow Knight in brand new artist mashup, showing four unique styles of both dark and foreboding games.

There is just something about the Dark Souls series and Hollow Knight that just meshes. Maybe it is the often brutal boss fights, or the tendency to brush aside traditional game mechanics and design. Either way, we would easily play a crossover version of the game — something that YouTube channel Drawfee Show turned to art in one of their recent videos.

In one of their recent videos, the artists behind the drawings challenge themselves to make some crossover art between Hollow Knight and Dark Souls. Not only do we get to see the end-product, but we also get to see how the sausage is made.

And there are some really genius interpretations in this. For example, the Hollow Knight version of Nito is something you can absolutely imagine in the game — and is terrific all around. Meanwhile, the rendition of Hornet somehow looks ripped out of a classic 90’s anime. While there is a lot of Dark Souls and Hollow Knight fan art, this is without a doubt my favorite of the bunch:

In other Dark Souls news, it was revealed that the latest iteration had sold 3 million copies worldwide earlier in May. Meanwhile, others in the Hollow Knight community continue to push out new fan content — like the recent piano collection of some of the biggest soundtrack hits. It’s been a while since we’ve heard of the game’s upcoming sequelSilksong, but that hasn’t led to a dropoff in fandom enthusiasm.

The Dark Souls series is available now on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and many more consoles; you can grab Dark Souls Remastered on Amazon to help support DualShockers. Meanwhile, Hollow Knight on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One (and also purchasable on Amazon). Finally, make sure to subscribe to Drawfee Show’s YouTube channel for more art videos and crossover projects.
