Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin launch trailer

Namco Bandai has unsheathed the official launch trailer for Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for your viewing pleasure

Scholar of the First Sin is a re-release of the original Dark Souls II, and brings the brutal action-RPG to PS4 and Xbox One for the first time complete with a 60fps overhaul, improved visuals, new enemy and item placements, and other extras. 

Dark Souls II (see our review here) was originally released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in March 2014, and was directed by Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura, as opposed to Hidetaka Miyazaki, who helmed Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls. 

Dark Souls II proved a critical and commercial success, and scooped the Golden Joystick gong for Best Game last year.
