And it also has my attention. I’m scared.
Everything about this trailer just makes me want to pack up every game I’m currently playing — Grand Theft Auto V, Metroid Prime — and just play more Dark Souls. It’s so good. And the song (Aching Bones by Nadine Shah) is also great.
We’ve also just gotten word that Dark Souls II will be released on March 14, 2014 and (surprise surprise) there’s a big fancy collector’s edition.
According to Namco Bandai, the collector’s edition contains…
- a premium quality Warrior Knight figurine measuring in at 12 inches / 30 cm in height and weighing in at nearly 16 ounces / 450 grams.
- an exclusive hardbound art-book filled with never-before-seen images created by the talented artists at game developer FromSoftware.
- a sizable full-colour fabric map of the DARK SOULS II game world that can only be had within the Collector’s Edition.
- a metal game case which will contain both the game disc and the official game soundtrack composed by famed Japanese composer Motoi Sakuraba.
Seriously, I just want the game. I love this trailer — the weight of the attacks, the enemy design, the environments — and I genuinely can’t wait for this.
