Some of the bosses shown. Dear God oh Jesus.
I don't know if Dark Souls II, or any game made by From Software for that matter, really tend to work well in trailers. It's hardly a game able to show its appeal within two hours, let alone two minutes. But still, those that love the series might want to check out the above trailer. Which mixes actual shot, in-real-life footage, with some new stuff from the game itself.
For some reason I just trust that Dark Souls II is going to be good, and that I'm going to want to play it. Actually, I think it might be worthwhile playing through (and finally finishing) the original Dark Souls in time for the release.
