Well, it's official: the successor to Demon's Souls has a solidified release date.
Namco Bandai has revealed that Dark Souls will arrive for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 4 in North America (European gamers can nab it on the 7th). From Software's new action/RPG is the follow-up to one of the most critically acclaimed titles of the generation, and let's not forget that you can pre-order the Collector's Edition for for the same price as the standard edition. Said Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing for Namco Bandai Games America:
"With Dark Souls, we’re able to bring the uniquely challenging and rewarding style of gameplay popularized by FROMSOFTWARE back to the PlayStation®3, as well as to the Xbox 360® platform for the first time. With its massive, seamless open world design, deep exploration, tense dungeon crawling, extreme battles, and an innovative online component that allows gamers to draw from the collective experience of the community, Dark Souls provides a gameplay experience unlike any other."
Well, Dark Souls now shares a release date with Twisted Metal . …besides both being very dark, we can't think of two games that are further apart. So that means you have to get both, obviously. 😉
