Hello, Here's The Dark Souls 3 Japanese Launch Trailer

I could try and spin this into something witty, but Dark Souls fans don’t want witty.

You want Dark Souls 3. You want footage. Here you go.

The Japanese launch trailer for the game was published live earlier today. I’m told that it’s also pretty full of spoilers, in terms of some of the bosses, so you might want to watch out for that.

Or you might not care because it’s a Souls game and it’s going to be dark and gritty and atmospheric and nightmarish all the same. So let’s watch.

That scene with the blood: oh my. And that final boss, good lord.

There’s enough cinematic moments in here that I’m even reconsidering my long-held apathy with the series. I’ve played a couple of hours of Scholar of the First Sin and about 25 hours of Bloodborne, before I moved onto something else. Question is: should I dive into Dark Souls 3 fully? Is this the game to convert me?
