It's time to die, once again, as Bandai Namco has released an official release date for Dark Souls III.

The third installment of the Dark Souls trilogy now has a release date, according to a press release issued by Bandai Namco late tonight. The game was given an April 2016 release window in Japan and that is the same window that the North American release will have. So prepare to die one more time in April of next year.

Dark Souls III promises to have more of the action of the first two games, along with some player-requested features. Those include new tools and options, but the major new feature will be the Skills system, which will add attack modifiers to each weapon type, allowing for a deeper RPG-style experience.

Shacknews will be on the lookout for any further Dark Souls 3 news to hit from this weekend's Tokyo Game Show. The game is set to come to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

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?
