Leading interactive entertainment company BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today proudly announced DARK SOULS™ III for an early 2016 release date for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC. A dark and brooding fantasy adventure awaits players in a vast twisted world full of fearsome beasts, devious traps and hidden secrets.
To every great quest comes an inevitable end. Today FromSoftware launches the final exciting chapter of the Dark Souls™ II The Lost Crowns trilogy upon its most hardcore fans. As in the previous two chapters of The Lost Crowns trilogy, only the most hardcore, determined, and unrelenting fans will survive the onslaught of new enemies, traps, and bosses that have been devised to stop players from completing their quests in Crown of the Ivory King.
Today at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) fighting game tournament held in the Westgate Las Vegas Hotel & Resort, BANDAI NAMCO announced TEKKEN 7, the latest installment of the venerable franchise, powered by the award-winning Unreal Engine 4.

But beyond that, and more to the point Dark Souls II is pure excellence. There’s a challenge around every corner, lore hidden within conversations, and secrets begging to be revealed in the environment. It can be frustrating, but it can also be extremely satisfying too. It’s a deep game that demands your attention, and won’t let it go for long after you’ve put the controller down.
