From Software plans on re-releasing Dark Souls with the upcoming Artorias of the Abyss downloadable content as Dark Souls with Artorias of the Abyss Edition. This bundle, which is essentially Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for Japan, will be available on PC and PlayStation 3.
Early purchasers will snap up a couple of bonus items with their game – a 70 page strategy guide that explains how to start Dark Souls and goes all the way up to the Gargoyle (this is based on the original Dark Souls guide with updated stats), an overworld map, soundtrack CD (the same one Japan got in September), and a sleeve to hold all of the items.
Dark Souls with Artorias of the Abyss Edition will be available in Japan on October 25 for 4,800 yen ($61). Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for PC only arrives in North America on Steam and Games for Windows Live on August 24.
