Namco Bandai Games America revealed Friday night that "Dark Souls II" is currently in development at FromSoftware in Tokyo, Japan. While a release date hasn't been set, the developer is indicating it will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
According to Namco Bandai's press release, "will feature a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in while delivering its signature brand of unrelenting punishment that players hunger for." Also, the series' familiar server-based multiplayer mode is being "revamped," though it's not clear yet what that'll mean for players.
Here are some images from the trailer.
