Dark Souls 2 announcement trailer, game to be “more straightforward & understandable.”

[Update: here are the first Dark Souls 2 PS3 screens and some new Dark Souls 2 art.]

Ready for more pain? Here’s an announcement trailer for Dark Souls 2. The sequel will apparently not be developed by creator Hidetaka Miyazaki. Instead he’ll be overseeing two new leads, Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura.

Shibuya has said this will be a, ”more straightforward and more understandable” installment. A statement that’s bound to worry fans of its stern challenge. Although he did add, “The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay”.
