A surprise CGI trailer unveiled at the ongoing Spike Video Game Awards tells us that a sequel to tough-as-nails 2011 RPG Dark Souls is on the way.
Aside from the CGI tease and the name, no details were given, and that also means there’s no announced platforms. Maybe that’s because the platforms haven’t been announced, eh? The fact that the sequel is falling under the Dark Souls, not the Demon’s Souls, name suggests that it will at least be multiplatform.
Update: the announcement press release says PS3, 360 and PC (cheers Al!), and a feature in this month’s issue of Edge confirms that the game is in development once again at From Software, by a team led by new directors Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura. The trailer isn’t online properly yet, but you can see it as part of the VGAs replay here (at around 2m30s).
