Dark Souls Delayed


According to Kotaku, From Software (creators of Demon’s Souls) has confirmed that Dark Souls will be delayed, thankfully by a week, in Japan!

The game was scheduled for release on September 15th in Japan and October 4th and 7th in North America and Europe respectively. The new release date is set for September 22nd in Japan, but there have been no comments on wither the other regions will experience the same delay or not.

“From Software” hasn’t given any specific reasons behind the delay.

    I never played the first one. The difficulty scared me off. I still should try it at some point.

    @The_Nmac: Yes, yes you should. I was going to start a platinum run on it when my bluray drive died so it’s on my final “to do” list. Shouldn’t take more than 90 hours total if I do things right.

    Honestly I went for the Plat with this one but I got bored eventually. Farming for that freakin’ pure Bladestone was just disappointing and not getting a Pure Moonlisghtstone from any of the crystal geckos on world 4 with a Pure Black WT just made me give up.

    Pedro you need to farm it with sword of searching in pure black world tendency. Youd get like 6 in one run if you did it that way.

    This got delayed because I just paid off the import version last week. Well at least my na is on time

    There haven’t been news if this will be delayed in the US and Europe, hopefully it will remain the same.

    @Jason, so that’s what I was doing wrong ¬¬ I don’t think I had it at the time, I was trying to max out my Moonlight Spear.

    If Dark Souls was not so close to release I would be willing to give it another go, but now I think I should just wait because there probably will be a lot of farming on it too.

    I Hope the release day is the same for us. Either way this is one of my most anticipated games

    Yeah bud its not tedious if you know what your doing. Sadly they dont explain world tendency in detail enough for people to understand how to do it. there is also more tedious methods of doing it offline then signing on online etc its confusing. Basically revive yourself then die and repeat that 7 times, return to nexus, return to area, pure black tendency achieved :P Yes dark souls will have even more farming. I always went with pure luck and used blueblood as its damage was based on luck stat so i always found everything anyways :P

    lol dude, I know how WT works ;p

    I just didn’t have the sword of searching ;]

    I rely mostly on my spiderstone bow to pick the targets from afar so I don’t know much about close range weapons, I always felt like I should have delved in it a bit more, but really all that farming kind of bored me eventually… if not for items, purely for souls…

    Anyway, that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the game, it’s awesome and I’m getting Dark Souls day 1 (whenever that is around here).

    It was delayed by a single week… who cares?

    This game is going to be awesome…
