Dark Souls 3 gets brutal Japanese launch trailer – are you ready to die all over again?

Bandai Namco Games has released the official Japanese launch trailer for Dark Souls 3.

The next instalment in the brutal action-RPG series hits Japan tomorrow, although the U.S. and Europe will have to wait until mid-April to get their mitts on the game.

Dark Souls 3 builds on the template of its predecessor, although this time around there is more emphasis on RPG elements as players build their characters using a variety of customisation options.

In addition, there’s also a new ‘Ready Stance’ to take advantage of, which allows gamers to inflict more damage against enemies than would normally be possible. Speaking of enemies, expect to come up against a new and varied bestiary in Dark Souls 3, not to mention a host of overwhelmingly tough bosses to do battle with.

Check out the launch trailer below.
