Dark Souls 3 player defeats Abyss Watchers boss with dance pad

Do you think Dark Souls 3 doesn't pose enough of a challenge? Why not try Rudeism's approach by not using a traditional controller? This Twitch streamer completed the entire game using a Dance Dance Revolution floor pad, even defeating the hard Abyss Watcher boss using his feet.

In case you've never seen this dance pad, it basically reworks the PlayStation 4 controller's buttons onto a mat you can walk over. In Dark Souls 3's case, that means you can step forward, backward, or side-to-side for movement, or diagonally to activate other buttons. It certainly poses a unique challenge - Rudeism himself died 289 times before this particular video began - but not an impossible one. What will Dark Souls 3 players come up with next?

Dark Souls 3 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
