Leaked Dark Souls 2 Footage

Dark Souls (the spiritual sequel to Demon's Souls) may be my favourite game of all-time.  It is opaque and confounding, frustrating and difficult, hard to understand, and the most satisfying game I've ever played.

A sequel is coming - Dark Souls 2 - which is currently having a network test in Japan, and here is 20 minutes of leaked footage.  It's got splashes of Kanji all over it, but just look upon it, and despair...

Dark Souls 2 launches in North America on March 11 2014.

EDIT: huh, having trouble with the encoding. See next news post.
