Dark Souls II
Just as IGN promised yesterday, they have released the first gameplay footage of the highly anticipated sequel to one of the best games of 2011, Dark Souls II. With one of the two directors of Dark Souls II Yui Tanimura and Namco Bandai global producer Tak Miyazoe giving us the run down in this 12-minute gameplay walkthrough we get some insights into what is going on. They are showing us some areas, new mechanics, new enemies, new animations, and of course showcasing numerous deaths.

From what I’ve seen, besides some kinks that need to be worked out, I’m quite impressed. It seems they truly are keeping the heart and essence on what made Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls such prolific games that acquired such a large following after making such an impact on the gaming community. Check out the gameplay reveal below, plus the Q & A IGN had with Yui Tanimura and Tak Miyazoe. Dark Souls II will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC with no release date announced so far.
