New Dark Souls Trailer Confirms October Release


A new trailer for Dark Souls is here. Not only does it reveal giant bosses, environmental hazards and deadly enemies, the trailer also confirms an October release for the dark fantasy, role playing game. No other date was given besides the month. Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, one of the best rpgs currently available for the PS3. Namco Bandai will publish the game in the West for both the PS3 and 360 while From Software handles it in Japan as a PS3 exclusive.

    Thanks for the reminder Sakinah.

    Do we know about a CE or a pre-order bonus for the game? October is near enough to december as to make an exception, especially if I can get me an artbook and soundtrack to go along with my purchase.

    I wanted to get into Demon Souls. I really liked the way they handled online play. I’ll be keeping my eyes on this, and will most likely be picking it up.

    No word on any collector’s edition for this yet. If there is one it’ll probably be announced a few months ahead of release.

    It’s scheduled to release simultaneously worldwide.

    Edit: Just found out it’s releasing first in Japan this September, according to Famitsu and other sources.

    I’m with Jason on importing this. He Imported Demon’s Souls and tortured me by playing it and talking to me on the phone while I had to wait for North America release. Not this time man.

    @Sakinah great find on the collector’s edition, couldn’t get it here for Demon’s Souls ):

    I simply love those art books.
