    From Software has revealed the release date for Dark Souls III
    On one page of Dark Souls official website, Dark Souls III is listed for release on March 24, 2016 at least in Japan for PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC version announced at a later date.
    There will be also a special edition containing a map and a CD with the soundtrack.


    So by the end of March, hoping that the European version will be available (UPDATE it will be released on April, 2016 in Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Australasia), now know where to find me ;)

    BTW in a recent interview the creator of Darks Souls Miyazaki talks about what makes the Dark Souls series so appealing, and cites Bloodborne‘s combat limitations as a reason for his desire to improve Dark Souls 3‘s fighting system. Regarding both games, Miyazaki says:

    “Because of the character of Bloodborne’s gameplay, its battle style, as well as the role-playing elements, it’s limited compared to the Dark Souls franchise. It doesn’t necessarily mean Bloodborne was bad. However, while working on [it] I realised, I want to [create] something which has a wide range of battle styles, or features magic, or those things which allow players to wear awesome armour. Those elements are what actually made me come [back] to the Dark Souls franchise.”

    So for those who feared a simplification of the gameplay of the new Dark Souls will have nothing to fear; however IMHO Bloodborne has the merit of having approached a lot of new players to the genre and it deserves a little more recognition by its creator perhaps with a nice new DLC of which is still unknown release date (UPDATE announced Bloodborne DLC), but I think that will come out obviously before Dark Souls 3 :rolleyes:.

    Yesterday on gamespot.com published an interesting interview with Miyazaki who is the current president of From Software and the creative mind of the various souls like games.
    Miyazaki says he’s ready to close the book on Dark Souls :eek:. In an industry where it’s commonplace to stretch the popularity of franchises across annual iterations, that may be hard to believe, but he thinks it’s critical to the future of his studio, From Software.

    So probably the next Dark Souls 3 will be the last of this magnificent series.
    I honestly not yet tired of these games in the last 6 months I have been playing for more than half the time to bloodborne and dark souls 2, but it is equally understandable and right to try new ideas, anyway I trust again in the future in some new chapter of bloodborne.
    So fans of dark souls do not miss the next spring.

    Missing 2 months the release of Dark Souls 3 and today was published the opening cinematic trailer:

    meanwhile spread some preview on the features of the game, among the most interesting I point out:

      • Is stat resetting available?: It is possible by meeting certain condition. But it is impossible to change your character customization. So be careful.
      • Is it possible to warp between bonfires?: Once you visited, yes. :)
      • How about Co-op with friends?: Use same password matching system like bloodborne. :)
      • Condition of matching?: Level :) (the soul memory in DS2 was difficult to calculate too)
      • Co-op time?: It's limitless. Play as much as possible until you kill the boss or get killed.:)
      • Slots of weapons?: 3 slots on each hands. :)
      • Is magic limited by numbers?: It's a system uses FP gauge. :eek:
      • Are mobs respawn endlessly?: Yes. Unlike DS2, it is endless respawn. This game focuses on achieving feeling by dominating toughness. :confused: (on more than one occasion, I used the respawn limitation during the first run in DS2 otherwise I would not be able to move forward :oops:)
      • Is it possible to invade soloing host?: I cannot talk about it.:eek:

      After months of dying stay in Drangleic and Yharnam, I can not wait to walk even for this gloomy Lothric.
