When a person speaks of Japanese RPGs, generally it invokes thoughts of the technical fantasy environments of Final Fantasy or the colourful and cartoony visuals of Dragon Quest. Dark Souls has challenged this perception before with its gritty presentation and unique emphasis on death and harsh combat, and this April it is set to do it again.
A launch trailer for FromSoftware’s Dark Souls III was released last week following the games debut in Japan. While international fans still have a little time left to wait until its worldwide release in April, they can still enjoy the launch trailer which reveals all manner of new beasts to battle and fear.
The Dark Souls III trailer is voiced in English with Japanese subtitles and with its dark imagery and intense focus on life and death, perfectly creates anticipation for the games worldwide release on April 12th.
Check out the launch trailer below.
