A series of dark fantasy action-RPGs known for thier brooding atmosphere and cryptic, labyrinthine dungeons.
The game's fully 3D, first person perspective was groundbreaking among role-playing video games of the time and received significant critical acclaim. The Souls series was created as a "spiritual successor" to King's Field.
The first game in the series, "King's Field" was released exclusively in Japan. Since the first game was never released outside of Japan the sequel "King's Field II" was released as "King's Field" in both North America in Europe. This also caused the third game "King's Field III" to be released as "King's Field II" in those countries.
