Prepare To Die Again: Dark Souls II Announced

The incredibly unfortunate heir to E3's Mountain-Dew-and-Dorito-stained throne just happened, so onward to the inevitable barrage of substance-free announcements. First up, Dark Souls II is a thing. It's official, it's real, etc. Presumably, it's also a videogame, but Namco and From didn't even go that far. So, is it coming to PC? I haven't the foggiest. But given Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition's strong reception 'round these parts, it seems likely [Update: And also confirmed. Hooray!]. Until we know, well, anything, though, here's an appropriately death-ridden CG trailer. If you pay close attention, you might also notice DRAGONS EVERYWHERE.

So yeah, dragons, masked people, a mysterious hooded woman, a castle, trees, blood - but what does it all mean? Maybe it doesn't mean anything. Maybe Dark Souls II actually takes place in Neo-Cyber-Future Tokyo 2085, and From Software's just trying to teach us a stern lesson about extrapolating too much from CG trailers. Or, you know, it could simply mean that a colorful variety of monsters are going to use us hilariously brittle scratching posts again. But probably that first thing.
