Japanese success story Dark Souls gets a sequel

Off the back of its Dark Souls success, Namco Bandai Games has revealed that a sequel to the hard-as-nails open world RPG is in the works.
Newsbrief: Off the back of its Dark Souls success, Namco Bandai Games has revealed that a sequel to the hard-as-nails open world RPG is in the works. Dark Souls II, due for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, will take the original concept of sharing experiences between players online, and put a new revamped twist on the idea, although From Software isn't saying exactly what that twist will be yet. Dark Souls and its spiritual predecessor Demon's Souls represent a Japanese company embracing its culture and injecting a real Japanese feel into its games, all the while being successful -- something that the studio behind Tokyo Jungle recently told us is essential to successfully bringing Japanese-built games across to the West. At last count in May, Dark Souls had already sold more than 1.2 million units in the U.S. and Europe.
