    which cover? The original or the Prepare To Die.

    If the Original, it looks like the Elite Knight set, so maybe Oscar, maybe. But it's definitely Artorias on the Prepare To Die case.

    If you are referring to the game cover for Dark souls. Then i have a slight disappointing thing to tell you.

    First off why is this in the Off-Topic section, this is Dark souls general. sry just had to point that out.

    Secondly, The character on the front cover has what looks like Artorias's sword, and perhaps shield. but it is not Artorias, Japanese games commonly have a game cover that has a picture of the environment of what the game is, while american games usually have the cover of the main character, or characters in the game.

    These are facts, but also my opinion, you may be right. that may be Artorias before his armor was corrupted by the dark, but probably not.

    If it is Artorias then awesome! he's my favorite character. But im just not sure if it is because of the armor, and JP style.

    The weapon is not one found in game. I don't think the shield is either. I always thought it was Oscar, but with a different weapon and shield, as perhaps the art was made long before the weapon models were finalized.

    Yeah, I'm a forum noob.

    Anyways, I think that it could have possibly been the first version for Artorias, or maybe it's just a random knight since it's the US cover and they may have made it last. Although the greatshield of artorias has a very unique look, the sword doesn't look like his

    before the prepare to die was conceptualised, lots of people theorised it was artorias in the abyss, however obviously, it's not.

    It's not a very good cover really, completely against what the game actually is, would much rather have had the limited edition boxart with the black knight as the games official cover.
