Dark Souls Has More Of A Demon’s Souls Ring

By Spencer . December 16, 2010 . 4:08pm

image Those Dark Rings and Crowns of the Dark trademarks may have been red herrings. We just uncovered a trademark filed by Namco Bandai in Europe for Dark Souls. Namco Bandai registered Dark Souls, but skipped the other two potential titles found in Japan.


Dark Souls is either another contender for Project Dark’s official name or a sign that we’re going to see a lot of dark games from Namco Bandai in 2011.

    To say i can’t wait for this game would be an understatement.

    • HarryHodd

      Agreed. Demons souls is my game of the generation so far.

  • Code

    I just started playing Demons Souls about two weeks ago, have to admit not my typical style game, but I’ve been nothing but splendidly impressed by it. I love it’s tough as nails unforgiving gameplay, atmosphere and style. If only more games tackled combat and action with such finesse >w<' Such a good game, definitely be watching ANY continuation of the series.

      You should totally try backstabbing people with your bare hands.

      It’s awesome.

      • Code

        ARE YOU SERIOUS +O+! Holy crap why haven’t I tried this before!

      • i accidentaly killed one of those NPCs of one world that was in the “plaza” where are all the worlds (forgot the name) i felt really bad for doing so lol D: i just had to reset the game

        • Code

          Yeah, I came close to killing a couple NPC’s that way by accident. Particularly Ostrava, and Biorr — Biorr I accidentally killed during the Penetrator fight on my 2nd cycle, then sh!t got real opo;

          Although I also accidentally killed Yurt that way even though your suppose to kill him. Seriously I totally rofl’d when I backstabbed him by accident and kicked him off the tower >ww<;

    It seems they did read the comments here. While we were bitching about the other two names, we mentioned “Dark Souls” wouldn’t be that bad instead.

  • HarryHodd

    Dark souls is what I suggested. Good choice :)

  • urbanscholar

    My soul is sleeping until this comes to light

  • PrinceHeir

    will see how this turns out. without the creator from SCEJ let’s see how they do it.

    • badmoogle

      Good point,this is something that also troubles me.
      And i hope From Software got enough PS3 experience from Demon’s Souls and 3D Dot Game Heroes because their last multiplatform title before those games Armored Core For Answer run terribly on PS3.
      I wonder what will be their base platform for Project Dark…

      I think it would have made sense if SCEJ offered an exclusive timed contract to FS just like Sega did with Platinum Games…

  • MrRobbyM

    They really like souls don’t they?

  • Eh, Dark Souls is an alright name I can live with. I just want to see more of it. Guess I should go watch the trailer again.

  • Blacksofa

    The true Demon Soul starts here!

  • I would hope that all the core game play components are kept intact for the pseudo-sequel. There are few games that have captivated me as much as Demon’s Souls. Now the hard part for me is trying to decide which console to get the game for…:-p

  • finally some information about this game is coming out..now for a release date please
