Recommended Videos

FromSoftware is taking a break from mecha and going back to dark fantasy worlds with Dark Souls II. Namco Bandai announced the title tonight and the game will have a brand new hero. The story and world will also be new.

 

Oh, and so is the director. Tomohiro Shibuya who may have worked on some projects with Capcom is the director of Dark Souls II. Hidetaka Miyazaki, creators of the Souls series, will work on the game as a supervisor.

 

“This new chapter in the Dark Souls saga presents opportunities for us to drive innovation in gameplay design, develop an entirely new story, and expand the scope of the world in which the player interacts with the game. We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series,” says Tomohiro Shibuya, FromSoftware Director on Dark Souls II. “The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our dark journey.”

 

One of the "twists" is the team will change the multiplayer mode with a different concept of playing with others. Dark Souls II is in development for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PCs.
