Talk about hardcore. The main character can't even avoid getting trounced in the trailer for Dark Souls 2. Yikes.

We're pretty certain that the dragon you see floating around in the trailer is probably going to be the first enemy you encounter in this sequel to the soul-crushingly difficult Dark Souls.

According to an article on Kotaku, the game will feature a new main character, story, and world to explore (assuming they can make it past the first 100 meters). There will also be some changes made in the multiplayer aspects of the game, which promise "a revamped server-based multiplayer mode that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing with others," and probably means that you're going to at least die in good company.

There aren't a plethora of details regarding the game at the moment, especially when it comes to any concrete release dates, but a tweet from Japanese developer From Software has confirmed that Dark Souls II will be on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
