Dark/Demon Souls is pre-Skyrim. Give credit where credit is due.

Will this be on Next Gen systems, including the Wii U?
SilentNegotiator  +   502d ago
Demon/Dark Souls really reinvigorated my passion as a gamer. No announcement could make me ruin my panties any harder.

@Mike
Yes, I'm sure it will be on all the current gen systems.
ZING.

i thought it was going to be the new skyrim dlc with the way the announcer described it, and was so happy to see it was dark souls 2.

I knew what she was going too announce just a few words in to her description.

As long as it's From Software, we have nothing to worry about...

Only thing i didnt like that From Software did was the downgrade of AC4A to AC5.

Why is this 360 tagged? Sony owns the DARK SOUL IP so no way in hell its coming to the Xbox.

Edit: My bad, yes I was thinking about Demon Souls...have not played Dark Souls 1 yet but from what I heard its just as good if not better that Demon Soul...can someone confirm this?

@ Alpha - Yes I really hope we see another Demon Souls game but not sure if its going to be the same with out the same developers.

Sony should give it to Santa Monica studio, those guys would do the game justice.

Sony owns the Demon's souls IP, not the Dark Souls one. Dark Souls was on the 360.
Forbidden_Darkness  +   502d ago
You're thinking about Demons Souls, not Dark Souls. Dark Souls is multiplatform.

@Neckbear: You beat me too it haha

Sony really let Demon's Souls IP get away from them as an exclusive. Because really, Dark Souls is Demon's Souls 2 in almost everything but name.

I don't care, but I would think Sony would.

"I heard its just as good if not better that Demon Soul...can someone confirm this?"

Both are great games. Both are similar, and have their positives.

I personally like Demon's Souls better for the atmosphere, level design, story behind each arch stone, and better stat-scaling and online.

Now Dark Souls has levels that interconnect in a Metroid / Symphony of the Night kind of way, more armor / weapon upgrade paths, and Estus Flasks to eliminate near infinite herb-munching healing.

Dark Souls also added the bonfire checkpoint system, which some say makes the game easier. I don't think so though.

When people talk of restarting the whole level upon death in Demon's Souls, it seems that they forget the shortcuts that can be opened along the way to bypass most if not all of the levels' dangers. You can actually hop out of the Nexus and be at the bosses door in a couple of minutes or less.

I also feel that Dark Souls almost tries to push you into close combat with bosses. It's either close quarters, multiple boss enemies, the boss will rush you down, or the safest place to be is right next to the boss where it will whiff most of it's attacks or do very little damage if managing to hit (other than that one telegraphed grab / aeo / super move each has).

You really do need to learn to shoot / cast on the move.

But then again, a bow user with poison arrows can trivialize a few of the most frustrating areas, like Sen's Fortress. Snipe ahead and simply concentrate on traps at your leisure.

Eh, I can go on. I really like the games. They both have their nuances, but if you had fun with Dark Souls, you'll most-likely have fun with Demon's Souls.

HAHA! YESSSSSSSSSS! BEST NEWS ALL DAY!

CAN'T WAIT!

Demon's Souls and Dark Souls were unquestionably my game of the years for 2009 and 2011! Best DLC for 2012 too!

Badass cinema scenes here! I wonder who these new masked enemies are and how they fit into the lore.

It looks as though there might be some sort of new trading system beyond dropping things on the ground with they way they make a point of showing the one character pass off the feather to another.

I'm almost crying right now, so damn excited, I love this series, Demon's/Dark Souls are by the best Rpgs this gen imo.
Gamer1982  +   502d ago
I don't get it.. Dark Souls was the name of a sequel. So its a sequel of a sequel? Yeah that makes sense..
brodychet  +   502d ago
Lol so I'm sure you didn't appreciate Final Fantasy 13-2 ... Or Call of duty black ops 2, or anything that branches off of anything ever.
DragonKnight  +   502d ago
Dark Souls was NOT a sequel. It was a spiritual successor. It's akin to FF games being different to each other except for the direct sequels.

Meh. Demon's Souls 2 of GTFO.

Couldn't care less about the Dark Souls as that was shit compared to Demon's Souls.

What's with all of the good IPs dying out this gen?
SockeyBoy  +   502d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if you only like it more because its only on PS3.
Bumpmapping  +   502d ago
No hes right Demons Souls was alot better just facts.
bloodybutcher  +   502d ago
well, he is trolling every article about DS2:) so no worries.and @ bumpmapping-opinions are not facts.
garos82  +   502d ago
sorry but i loved demons souls as much as the next guy but dark souls truly delivered and surpassed its predeccesor. either way im stoked there will be a sequel, from software have created my best gaming experience this gen and needless to say day 1!

prepare to die.... again!
MeatAbstract  +   502d ago
I do think Demon's Souls was the better game simply because of the experience it first delivered.

Dark Souls is a damn fine game though and I really enjoyed it so I'm excited to see what improvements the sequel will bring.
bloodybutcher  +   502d ago
i would agree with meatabstract that the experience with Dem.S. was the 1st one and more memorable. but i think that Dark S. simply improved on that.
MysticStrummer  +   502d ago
While I did marginally prefer Demon's Souls, to say Dark Souls was shit is just stupid. Those games are 1st and 2nd on my favorite games of the generation list. You're probably the type of person who says jaggies make your "eyeballs bleed" or that one version of a multiplat "destroys" another because of some small difference. This announcement is the best gaming news I've heard all year.
SegataShanshiro  +   502d ago
The faboyism is strong in this one

UMADBRO? U mad that that a Sony exclusive evolved into something better and went multiplat? Umadbro?
Ser  +   502d ago
Why is he a fanboy? I enjoyed Demon's Souls and Dark Souls both, but I still think Demon's Souls was the better game.

The two titles are very much alike, sure. But there's something about Demon's Souls' story and locations that stand out to me. It seemed much more inspired to me. To each his own, though.

Demon's Souls being a PS3 exclusive has nothing to do with it either. I'm a PS3/PC gamer and I think BioShock / Demon's Souls are the best games of the generation. BioShock was released on the PS3 after the 360 and PC releases, mind you.

You need to stop throwing the fanboy term around like a kid and actually accept the fact that some people prefer different things. Shocking, I know.

AWESOOOOMMMEEE!!! Judging by the trailer the dragons will have more presence this time. I'm also thinking the masked enemies have more about them. I'm thinking masks will play a role in this game: probably for online invasion, pvp, coop and stuff like that?
Erudito87  +   502d ago
i dont want a pc version they would mess it up with resolution and frame rate locks
Norrison  +   502d ago
Not really, they didn't have experience with PC and the frame rate lock was justified because the animations were made for 30 fps.
I'm pretty sure they'll make a good PC version, I would prefer 1080p with locked 30 fps rather than sub hd with unstable framerate which was fatal for my ps3 playthrough since I died some times because of the lag. Dark souls is worth playing at 30 fps.

I am a PC gamer and all but I think console will be my choice platform (PS3 particularly as my Xbox360 broke) for From Software anything.
Hassassin  +   502d ago
Nah, they'll get it right this time... even if they don't, the game would still be worth playing in PC due to mods
marcoskids  +   502d ago
I came hard!!
greatcrusader44  +   502d ago
Guessing they're going with the kindle fire ending from dark souls AKA do exactly what the gods wanted and stop the age of Humanity. Dark souls was my fav game last yr and totally surprised by this announcement. Can't wait
Senor_Whopper  +   502d ago
i literally went full retard after this announcement

Well Gentlemen, time to get used to seeing yourself in Undead form yet again.
SegaKnuckles86  +   502d ago
BADAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSS. Loved Dark Souls. One of my favorite this generation alongside Demon's Souls and 3D Dot Game Heroes. I hope this game will be harder than the first but if not then at least don't make it easier.
