"Your wings will burn in anguish, time after time, for that is your fate" a new Dark Souls II trailer warns, "the fate of the Cursed." Your curse is that you're an idiot, idiot. Look where you're going. Don't rush in. You haven't even seen that monster before, so don't just start hacking at its leg. And why would you jump down that hole in the ocean?
The undead Curse is the crux of the story, of course, which goes down in a strange new land.
Dark Souls II is due March 11 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The PC version will follow a little later, so From Software has long enough to make it not total guff this time around. I am pretty keen to play it.
