Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Dark Souls II
Namco Bandai showed off a dozen titles at E3, many from their biggest franchises, and several of which are set to ship shortly. The full line-up features Armored Core: Verdict Day, Dark Souls II, One Piece Pirate Warriors 2, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, Pac-Man CE DX Plus, Pac-Man Museum, Power Rangers Megaforce, Project X Zone, Ridge Racer Driftopia, Tales of Xillia, and Tekken Revolution. Several of the highlights are detailed below.
A new shield design contest has launched on Facebook for Dark Souls II. Gamers who want to see their work in-game can submit their shield designs between today and May 13 for the community to vote on. Voting will start on May 14 and end on May 20, and the entries with the most votes will be sent to FromSoftware for the final round of selection. The development team will choose six designs to appear in the game, and Namco Bandai will announce the winning artists at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Namco Bandai will be bringing some more of that unique FromSoftware-style pain with Dark Souls II for 360, PC, and PS3. The upcoming action-adventure release will feature a new hero and story, as well as the return of multiplayer and the series’ traditional level of punishing difficulty.
