Dark Souls fans should keep their eyes peeled, their hearts high and their loins girded.


Dark Souls 3 is just around the corner now, but publisher Bandai Namco is suddenly teasing some “big” Dark Souls news to be announced today.

It seems an odd time to be making announcements that don’t relate to next week’s launch, so it’s possible this may be something like “collector’s edition back in stock” or “timing of first DLC”.

What we do know is it won’t contain any Dark Souls 3 spoilers, and may not relate to Dark Souls 3 at all; see the open-to-interpretation tweets below. (“Not about the game” is pretty vague, isn’t it?)

There’s a lot of speculation doing the rounds, and one hot theory is a Dark Souls re-release for PS4 and Xbox One. There’s also the fervent hope that Bandai Namco may bring Dark Souls 3’s release date forward suddenly, but I’m not holding my breath.
