FromSoftware’s Elden Ring lastly got here out of hiding on Thursday, after two years of deafening silence concerning the new journey from Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin. It appeared spectacular, in a next-gen Dark Souls type of manner, with its gigantic lightning-chucking dragons, double-jumping horses, a spider made from fingers, a brand-new Tall Lady to obsess over, and, after all, these pots.
Oh, these pots.
Elden Ring’s first gameplay trailer barely hinted on the existence of anthropomorphic pots, however they’ve changing into a quiet sensation since they have been revealed. It appears everybody — there are dozens of us! — loves the little pot with legs and arms, and the marginally bigger pot with legs and arms. In case you blacked out throughout yesterday’s Elden Ring reveal, right here’s a take a look at one in movement:
It’s not a lot, however in an action-packed and mood-setting trailer, it was good to see a wee sentient pot simply cruising round. The pot lad, or vase boi as some are calling it (we’ve requested Bandai Namco what their official title is), instantly provides off vibes just like the irascible Mushroom People and Mimics of Dark Souls, in that they are easy objects, loving and refreshingly redesigned. One can solely hope that the strolling containers of Elden Ring will probably be equally surly, and result in gamers dying unexpectedly. After all, it’s only a pot, proper? How may that one-hit kill you?
Unsurprisingly, fan artwork of Elden Ring’s pots is already flourishing.
And lastly, a triple shot of the ornery, ring-hungry pot boy from artist Mighty Ybaba.
