Dark Souls 2 was the big surprise announcement at this year’s VGA awards last night. If you missed the trailer, you can catch up here. The game’s directors at FROM Software have confirmed that the game will be more understandable, but not any easier as a result. get the scant quote below.

Speaking with Edge – via Shacknews – it was confirmed that Dark Souls 2 would be developed under the keen eyes of co-directors Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura.

Shibuya said on the matter of the game’s ambiguity, “I personally am the sort of person who likes to be more direct than subtle. [Dark Souls 2] will be more straightforward and more understandable.”

However he added that this wouldn’t result in the game being any easier. That’s it. Not the biggest quote ever, but we haven’t got a copy of the magazine yet.

However, what do you feel about the team making Dark Souls 2 more understandable? Does it undermine the trial and error exploration of the original? Let us know below?
