Hey, you’re not still trudging through the hard-to-beat “Dark Souls,” are you? I mean, you’ve already beaten it, posted a speed run, and you’re wondering why FromSoftware made the game so easy.
Ah, I’m kidding, that game was nuts, but there’s a third “Souls” game on the way from creator Hidetaka Miyazaki, who’s supervising the in-production “Dark Souls II” for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
The trailer doesn’t give any hints as to how the gameplay will be different this time out (although we do get to see some new enemies), but the press release from publisher Namco Bandai promises “a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in, while delivering the uncompromising challenge and ultimate sense of empowerment that players hunger for.” At the same time, the information-sharing across games will also be getting a revamp in the sequel in what’s being promised as a “distinct ’Dark Souls II’ twist” on the existing formula.
So what do you think? Are you ready to take on the challenge and frustration of another “Souls” game?
