While there are similarities to Dark Souls, which inspired Mortal Shell, the game looks to be much more than just a simple clone. One of the biggest additions to the Souls formula is how players are able to possess the bodies of powerful warriors in order to overcome their enemies.

The combat in the new Mortal Shell gameplay footage looks absolutely fantastic, brutal, and powerful. It looks like there's a real weight behind every hit.
