Dark Souls III Receives Japanese Release Date


FromSoftware has announced the Japanese release date for Dark Souls III, the upcoming action roleplaying game and fourth entry in the “Souls” series of games, known for their insane difficulty. Dark Souls III will be released in Japan on March 24, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One. A western release has not yet been revealed, but has been promised soon, including a PC version. The “package” edition of the game will cost about 7430 yen, or around $62 USD, and will include special maps and a soundtrack CD.

In addition to this, the PS4 version of Dark Souls III will be undergoing testing from October 16-18, and sign-ups to be a tester will open on October 4th at the official website. It’s all in Japanese, though, so you may need to understand the language in order to properly sign up.

Dark Souls III will include many features returning from the previous games, such as dodge-rolling, estus flasks, magic, bonfires, and really difficult combat. The game will also include a new “Ready Stance”; special abilities that let players do even more damage to enemies than normal. Also new are small gravestones, which function both as torches and lore objects.
