"Glorious... a bible for Souls fans." - Kotaku

"The ultimate resource for [Dark Souls] fans" - NintendoLife

Would you like Vaati to read the book to you?

The audiobook version of Abyssal Archive, read by VaatiVidya and featuring nearly 20 hours of Dark Souls insight and lore analysis, is now available.


Abyssal Archive features the most comprehensive fan analysis of Dark Souls' mythos ever undertaken. Presented in the most lavish collector's edition we have assembled to date. We set out to pay tribute to Miyazaki's legendary game by crafting something that embodies the same care and attention to detail that makes Dark Souls itself such a peerless work of art.

Includes a fold-out companion map of Lordran by artist Judson Cowan. Bound individually and housed alongside the books, this map rounds out the set, making Abyssal Archive the definitive reference for fans of Miyazaki's gothic masterpiece.
