New Dark Souls 2 concept art hints at a new style of pain

[Update: here are the first Dark Souls 2 PS3 screens.]

Here’s your first in-depth glimpse at the recently announced Dark Souls 2. The concept art shows a slightly new feel for the series with a hint possibly of a Persian or Middle Eastern flavor.

The new game isn’t being developed by creator Hidetaka Miyazaki but instead Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura will take on co-lead duties under Miyazaki’s supervision. Apparently Shibuya says this is to be a, “more straightforward and more understandable” experience while “not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay”.
