Dark Souls II Has An Australian Release Date (And A New Trailer And A Collector's Edition...)

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.

    Cannot wait to be tortured by this game - at least I know what I'll be doing from March onwards...

    Now this is a cool collector's edition!

    Fuck. Finally a collecters edition I'm going to have to buy.

    God damn it, FromSoft & NamcoBandai continuing the tradition of awesome trailers. The trailer for Dark Souls 1 was awesome, this trailer is awesome. Dark Souls is awesome. Fucking awesome. Too much hype, too awesome. is my nose bleeding? I might need to sit down.

    *foams uncontrollably*

    So excited that I may get both tge PC and PS3 versions.

    Not keen on the direction of these Dark Souls 2 trailers at all. LOOK AT ALL THE ACTION YEAH GET PUMPED! Where are the sombre tracks and atmosphere building? The tension and showcasing of the brilliant environments, loneliness and methodical weighty combat? I doubt they'll gut the core gameplay completely, but 'we're treating this like a AAA title' is never something I've seen good come of. Glad others like the focus I guess, even if I can't say I understand why, but better than everybody feeling dissapointed. Fingers still crossed.

    I cannot wait for this! I am so glad day one PC version (or launch window)! I am getting the collectors for sure!

    I thought you just said nothing scared you Mark! Immersion ruined.

    Great trailer. Captures the spirit of death and progression that dark souls does so well

    brb changing my pants.

    Graphics don't look anything special, looks more like an update than a complete rebuild. Don't get me wrong, Dark Souls is my favourite game, just doesn't look much different to DS.
