As you all probably know by now, I absolutely adore anything Dark Souls related, evident from the plethora of Dark Souls blog posts I spammed you, good folks, with! And since yesterday I was not able to watch the VGAs, I was greeted with amazing news this morning:
YES! THIS WILL HAPPEN! And there’s even a trailer for it as well! I’m honestly so excited I don’t know what to write here any more!
Anyway, my two cents about this, this game is most probably next gen, so I wouldn’t expect a release date any time soon, not until the new PlayStation is announced at least (or maybe a little before it), the reason for this is that the Souls’ series have been always (more or less) PlayStation exclusives, Demon’s Souls was a PS3 exclusive, even Dark Souls was a PS3 exclusive in Japan, which has to guarantee this comes to the PlayStation (Unlike a disappointing announcement not too long ago concerning Bayonetta 2).
From the trailer, the story seems to be a prequel, since there are dragons every where, and well, Seath the Scaleless made sure the dragons were defeated, hence this being a prequel.
Also there are some places that I think were there in Dark Souls, I didn’t see Firelink Shrine, but I did see what looked liked The Depth (where you encountered The Gaping Dragon).
Anyway, this post will be updated as I learn more information, so stay tuned.
