Praise the sun, indeed.
Last week, Bandai Namco announced when Japan would get to die over and over and over again for fun and profit and like clockwork, a few days later, via an official press release (the full text of which is below), we get the official word for the rest of the world. And that word is April.
There's not a specific day announced just yet, but it's holding pretty steady with the last few releases, as mentioned previously. Until then, we'll have to make do with the snippets of gameplay that seem to leak out about once a week at this point like. Like, for instance, the four minutes of gameplay Gamespot just released from the Tokyo Game Show today.
BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA INC. ANNOUNCES APRIL 2016 RELEASE MONTH FOR DARK SOULS™ III IN THE AMERICAS
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced the release date for DARK SOULS™ III, their highly anticipated action role-playing game from famed Japanese developer FROMSOFTWARE. DARK SOULS III will be available throughout North America and South America in April 2016 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One®, and PC via STEAM®. DARK SOULS III provides players with an all-new world filled with heinous enemies, hidden secrets, and captivating environments as they search to destroy the awakened Lords of Cinder and discover what has happened to this apocalyptic land. DARK SOULS III pushes a deeper sense of role-playing than previous iterations of the series with key additions that provide players with a set of tools and in-game options to customize their gameplay experience. Skills, a new addition to the DARK SOULS combat mechanics, adds attack modifiers to each weapon type, allowing players an increased tactical advantage in combat. Increase an axe’s attack power with War Cry or break an enemy’s guard with a quick upward swing from Ready Stance. The choice of if and when players use these added abilities is up to them. Players will also be able to equip their character with a wide variety of armor sets, medieval weaponry, as well as come across powerful sorceries and miracles as they develop their own personal style of play.
