“You’ll face death and it won’t be pretty, enough death to leave you broken, time after time.”

If you’re like me, you’re waiting or April 12th on pins and needles. But if you’re in Japan, your wait is significantly shorter.  If you’re in Japan, Dark Souls III, the conclusion to FromSoftware’s beautiful and difficult fantasy rpg series, releases today. To show off the new game, FromSoftware and maintain hype in the US, FromSoftware has released an amazing new launch trailer.

Warnings, the trailer is very spoilery (yes that’s a word).  So if you haven’t been following all the news and seen all the trailers, you’ve been warned.  But if you want to get a sneak peek at the terrors you’ll face next month, then enjoy the trailer. That means you’ll fully understand the implications of the quote below:

“You’ll face death and it won’t be pretty, enough death to leave you broken, time after time.”

Yeah that sounds like the Dark Souls we all know and love.

Dark Souls III launches today in Japan tomorrow and April 12th in the U.S.  It is available for PC, XBox One, and PS4.  If you digital preorder on the XBox One, you also receive the original Dark Souls for free.  You can also preorder special editions, such as the collector’s edition, and a strategy guide that comes with a real-life Estus Flask.
