Design A Shield For Inclusion In Dark Souls II


Namco Bandai are bringing their shield design contest back for Dark Souls II. The premise is that you design a shield for Dark Souls II, and if it’s selected as one of the six winning entries by the development team at From Software, it will be included in the game.


Submissions begin today and run through May 13th. You can find the necessary information at the Dark Souls II Facebook page. From May 14th through May 20th, voting will begin, and on May 20th the winning entries will be sent off for a final round of judging by From Software.


Winners will be announced at the San Diego Comic-Con, which takes place from July 18th to July 21st this year.
