Dark Souls 2 trailer sings a 'Hollow Lullaby'

"This isn't about death," says the latest Dark Souls II trailer. "This is about what you've learned from death." And given how often death comes in Dark Souls, you should expect to learn an awful lot. Lesson #1: Don't stand directly in front of a fire-breathing dragon.

The new Dark Souls II trailer is titled 'Hollow Lullaby' and shows off the world's many perils that fly around every corner, including Hollows and towering dragons. It also encapsulates the series' trial-and-error, never-give-up spirit in a nutshell.

Dark Souls II will arrive on March 11 on PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will follow sometime later, hopefully with Alice hosting a new batch of Dark Souls Nites on Twitch.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      But that's the best place to stand! He can't see you there. Because of all the fire.

        I just got a new PS3, mine broke a few years ago, and I'm playing Demon's Souls for the first time after having played Dark Souls extensively and its kicking my ass. I beat everything in Dark Souls without ever summoning help and I'm determined to the same in Demon's Souls but I'm finding it much harder.

          I'm in the exact same situation, but I'm having the exact opposite experience.

          You have effectively infinite healing items in demon souls so you don't fall victim to death via attrition like you might in Dark souls if you run out of estus. Also with a real MP bar magic is a lot more viable.

          Maneater is the hardest boss in my opinion, you might reconsider calling for help when you hit him.

          i feel in general that normal monsters in demons are way harder than normal monsters in darks, however bosses are much easier in demons than in darks, generally. there really is nothing in dark souls equivalent to a red eye knight, or a mindflayer.

          Demon's Souls is harder and the atmosphere is so much better than Dark Souls.

          Keep in mind I am a huge fan of Dark Souls.

      Yeah, there is basically one month (at least) where I am NOT going to touch my new shiny PS4 and my 360 will reign supreme again.
