Dark Souls 2 launch trailer struts its stuff

Dark Souls II arrives on Xbox 360 and PS3 tomorrow and Namco Bandai has released a launch trailer to inform you that, yes, you will die.


The long wait is almost over for Dark Souls fans (unless you're on PC, of course), as Dark Souls II will finally arrive tomorrow. Namco Bandai is commemorating the occasion with a new launch trailer that reminds players that they will die. A lot.

The latest trailer offers an overview of what it means to die in Dark Souls, while also showing off the many horrors that await in the latest entry to the series. It also contains 100% more strutting. And it has funky music, which prompted Alice to point out that she did it first in her Dark Souls Nites videos. You should watch those, by the way.

Dark Souls II arrives tomorrow on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. 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?

        also this video doesn't help my concerns that the game appears very washed out and over lit.

        still will be the bees knees tho.

      New meme; Dark Souls trailers with inappropriate and poorly matched music.

      Is it bad that I haven't finished Dark Souls?

        Probably not. What will probably happen is you will play this game and then become completely consumed by it like all good gamers should... until you finally finish it and stick your head out of the window and release a bone shattering primal scream of joy and relief as those 80 hours of joyous suffering wash away from your soul. Then you will thirst for more... and you will go back and play through Dark Souls. And then maybe Demon Souls as well. By that time Dark Souls 3 should be ready.
