Dark Souls players will “be frustrated”; more screens

Dark Souls producer Daisuke Uchiyama has said he wants players to “scream, yell and be frustrated” by the follow up to the notoriously hardcore Demon’s Souls. But check out these screens, and tell me it’s not worth it.

Speaking at a Namco Bandai event in San Francisco last night, as reported by CVG, Uchiyama said Dark Souls (formerly Project Dark) will deliver “a better, more difficult experience” than its precursor.

What does that mean? That the game “will send shivers down your spine” and, From Software hopes, result in “millions of deaths”.

No complaints here. Gamespot posted a handful of screens in addition to an earlier batch and trailer; see them below.
