Elden Ring features MMA Superstar Israel Adesanya in its latest live-action trailer.

MMA champion Israel Adesanya features this latest video, entirely unexpected for the Japanese studio From Software and publisher Bandai Namco. He comes and reminds the players about the immersive experience of Elden Ring.

“Be sharper than their swords, hit harder than their hammer. May death never stop you”, says Adesanya, who uses the metaphors from the game to inspire the gamers to never give up on the game’s missions and life in general.

It’s a live-action teaser that reminds gamers of “what it takes to explore” George R.R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki’s vast universe. A powerful fighter like MMA champion Adesanya is an excellent pick for such a video.

Elden Ring can be said to be the first From Software game that has achieved mainstream acclaim. It has also attracted players who were previously not keen on the Souls genre. It includes everything that series aficionados desired and then more to appeal to more players than ever before.

Besides this, the Elden Ring team is also working on several other projects after the recent success of this game. While part of this team is still working on DLCs and potential updates for Elden Ring, the team is also working on some other titles. As Hidetaka Miyazaki said, “We are working on several titles directed by people other than myself,  but I am not at a stage where I can talk about them in detail yet; the timing is right for us to increase our development staff.”

Indeed, it looks like From Software and Miyazaki have plans for gamers shortly!
