Dark Souls 3 is out this week... in Japan. So it's time to check out the launch trailer made up of creepy cinematics and similarly spooky voiceover.
I've always found the story in these games to be utterly inpenetrable but there's serious power in these visuls, and once the gameplay kicks in you can see why the series has millions of fans around the world. It's not just that the difficulty is pitched so high, it's down to the perfection of the combat controls. Every time you die you know that it was because of something you did wrong, not a failure in design. Which makes one more try totally inevitable.
It looks like fans will have plenty more to enjoy when the game releases in European parts on the 12th of April. so be sure to carve out some time to die.
