Dark Souls II was announced at the Spike Video Game Awards 2012 over the weekend, much to the surprise of everyone, including PSU.com.
Following on the heels of the reveal, publisher Namco Bandai has now released the official announcement trailer for the sequel, which is set to release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
A cult classic, the original Dark Souls harkned back to the days where gaming was unforgiving and brutal.
This is actually the third game in the 'souls' series however, with Dark Souls acting as a spiritual successor to PlayStation 3-exclusive Demon's Souls, which is arguably the more difficult of the two games.
Check out the trailer below:
