Over the weekend, Namco Bandai used the Spike Video Game Awards as the venue for announcing the sequel to 2011’s most frustrating-yet-rewarding game, Dark Souls.
Dark Souls II looks to have everything fans of the original game could want. The teaser trailer has been released and it features bleak landscapes, dark caverns, fierce battle, and dragons.
The only thing that can’t be conveyed in a teaser trailer is whether the game will be as difficult as its predecessor. Dark Souls was infamous for its difficulty curve, which caused many a rage quit. Namco knows that this was part of the game’s appeal, though, and will almost certainly use Dark Souls II try to challenge players on a level not seen since the days of the Nintendo Entertainment System.
